Queer Eye for the Designer Guy

I might not know a lot about graphic design, but I know good design when I see it.

I recently stopped at Ikea for a new bedroom rug. I had a specific design in mind that I skipped when I saw this one (pictured). I’m slightly color blind (red-green) so I’ve always gravitated toward bright, primary colors -- which this rug mostly has. I also love the black-and-white stripes.

Later, I found out it was one of the rugs in the new Onskedrom collection based on the designs of famed Swedish artist Olle Eksell. That’s pretty cool!
