On the cheap: Use bathmats for a rug

Y'all know we love cheap shit. And Miles Redd.

So we went majorly gaga for this:

Use bathmats for a rug, via RoomLust

Custom velvet-upholstered bed, Saarinen table -- but! That rug is made of stitched-together IKEA bathmats.

YES.

The trick reminded us of something designer Tom Scheerer did in his bedroom, below, when he sewed together inexpensive straw mats:

The exact bathmats that Miles Redd used are no longer available (at least not on IKEA's website), but the company sells similar options:
