Takashi Murakami x Louis Vuitton Rugs

You’ve probably fairly familiar with the work of Takashi Murakami, whether you’re aware of it or not; the Japanese artist’s work featured on the cover of Kanye West’s third album ‘Graduation’, as well as vanguarding the ‘Superflat’ style of art that has gained him numerous fans in both high- and low-culture markets.

In the latest of a prolific series of collaborations with French fashion house Louis Vuitton, which includes limited edition handbags and soft toys, Murakami has designed a set of floor rugs, based around two of the artist’s designs and produced in an extremely limited run of 20 each. The circular flower design pictured above is available in both 2 metre and 3 metre diameters, and are handwoven in a distiguished Indian rug factory. Very nice designs, if you can get your hands on one!
