Fans of Vivienne Westwood's fashions can now bring her punk sensibilities home with a series of new carpet designs for The Rug Company. Westwood's tattered Union Jack is unconventional patriotism at it's best, sprung from a partnership with the British-based purveyers of quality, modern floor coverings and launched in June. Since 2000, The Rug Company has been tapping fashion, interior, textile, and product designers to create a line of unique rugs. (See Paul Smith's contributions for a fresh dose of his characteristic hues and stripes.) All carpets are available at their London and New York showrooms, come in several sizes, and can be custom-fitted.

p.s. The history section of Vivienne Westwood's site is a great primer on the legendary designer's influence and punk past.
