Roubini Rugs has just launched a collection of 26 rugs riffed off of the work of Milanese painter, sculptor, interior decorator, and engraver Piero Fornasetti, naturally called the Fornasetti Rug Collection. The rugs are hand knotted in fine New Zealand wool, made in standard or custom sizes, and available through Neiman Marcus or Roubini. If you're unfamiliar with Fornasetti's original works, you may recognize them from reproduced versions in the form of furniture and other home accents (baskets, vases, plates); they have a playful, flippant sense of humor, and in some cases are clearly inspired by Greek and Roman architecture. "Emisfero Orientale" ($24,620) reimagines Greek mythology of constellations in golden tones, royal blue, and vivid red. "Bacio" ($8,100) pays lip service in bold graphic design to Lina Cavalieri's face. "Ortensia" ($14,100) is a tribute to nature, displaying an over-scaled hydrangea leaf on a velvety black background.
