Not for the faint of heart, these “Dirty Dishes” rugs replicate petri dishes filled with various bacteria and viruses. Clockwise from the top, Anthrax, SARS, E. coli, Cholera, HIV, Influenza, Botulism (a type of food poisoning), Streptococcus and Acinetobacter (the bacteria that can cause pneumonia).
The “Cross My Heart” rug was inspired by the heart surgery ordeal of a beloved next door neighbour. “It all turned out well in the end — this carpet is in honour of my neighbour and her strength,” says Bev.
Bands of green form a clean-lined spiderweb print on this runner. The fun colour and raised design will attract attention in a hallway.
A grid of circles creates an interestingly layered look on these die-cut pillows. The felt geometric designs come in hot hues.
Add stones to your floors with Bev’s Gem Collection rugs. A monochromatic colour scheme plays up the cut and design.
Like paintings, the “In The Woods” rug series depict forest scenes. This version features rich blues and purples.
For those with neutral colour schemes, the rug is toned down in greys, creams and browns. The unusual forest design is sure to spark conversation with guests.
Nature lovers and kids will enjoy the embroidered ants on these pillows. Crawling across the surface, they look eerily real from a distance.
The “Mommy Dearest” carpet doesn’t take itself too seriously as clothes hangers haphazardly “litter” the floor. Perfect for a bedroom or closet, this unpredictable design is perfect for the young at heart.
The “River Rock” die-cut carpet runner reveals the floor beneath while still offering a cosy surface to walk on. Butterflies flutter across the pillow cushions.
Moroccan-inspired furnishings are a big hit in home decor, and this rug is no exception. The carpet injects fun and fresh style to a room with its large yellow pattern.
Deep black and grey tones give this rug big impact. Woven in a large-scale contemporary pattern, it perfectly reflects today’s style.
Cleverly cut pieces of felt form 3-D looking pebbles on these cushions.
Squares of teal and blue appear to pop out of this rug, reminiscent of a classic optical illusion. There are more than four sides to this carpet, as the edges follow the ins-and-outs of the modern design.
