A Foot's Perspective #22: Wow! Mirage Carpet

This episode of A Foot's Perspective is about another Wow! carpet style that I came across at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas, NV. That's where I stayed last week for the yearly Surfaces flooring trade show.

This was my first visit to the Mirage and I really enjoyed my room.

The style: definitely modern! And, really fun!

From the photo, you can see that the lines are clean and straightforward, almost sparse. If it weren't for the splash of orange accents, and the bold carpet pattern, the room might have seemed oppressive or uninspiring.

I can assure you that that wasn't the case! The room was a haven from the gaudiness of the casino scene and the hectic pace of Surfaces. It helped me recalibrate and rebalance.

The carpet, as you can see, features a large, contemporary circular pattern in chocolate brown and light-cafe-latte [i.e., a shade of beige]. I love that the color contrast is so stark and yet the textural contrast so subtle between loop and texture carpet construction styles.

The orange accents pop and that bolster pillow is preposterous!

See for yourself!
