A Unique Outdoor Rug

From an original post by Marcia Blake on Fifthroom Living

Outdoor rugs frame a space, add color, texture and now with this innovative technique they can be part of the permanent hardscape.

New Ravenna founder Sara Baldwin visited friends in Southern California and was pleasantly surprised to see one of New Ravenna’s mosaic tile rugs in their outdoor room.  As an artistic entrepreneur, she is known for always being at the forefront of hard surface design.

“In this seating area around a fireplace the homeowner and friend of Sara Baldwin used a simple Charleston border and basket weave field combination to create an outdoor “rug” –so clever, yet almost never done!!!” said Sara.

This is so true to life I actually thought it was an actual outdoor rug made from acrylic fibers. I love this idea and want to share it with everyone who appreciates style and innovation. This is so unusual, yet such a wonderful use of tile and design.

New Ravenna sources mosaic tiles, stones, and glass from across the Americas, Europe, and the Far East to fashion into stunning art mosaics. The inspiration is drawn from this craft’s rich history — but the design is at the cutting edge of the contemporary.

At their studios on Virginia’s rural Eastern Shore, designers and artisans work side by side to create works of art that are as practical as they are spectacular.  Just think about how wonderful an outdoor tile rug would compliment a pergola or gazebo.

    This was a great new take on designing your floors. Cleverly you made it possible to make your tiles appear as if it was a rug without the worry of fur and threads scattered on the floor due to the rugs plus friendly for people with allergies.
