Love It or Hate It? Flax Manhole Cover Floor Mats

These Manhole Cover Floor Mats at Flax Art and Design ($27.95) cleverly echo the designs of city sewer covers, with versions available for London, Paris, and New York. I don't think I'd want one in my house, but the indoor/outdoor rugs would look cute on a porch. What do you think?

No way, not for me.

My brother bought one for his apartment, it's cute with the urban-ecclectic feel his place has.

Great for outdoors.

I like them. I don't really think "sewer" when I see manhole covers(even though I know that's what they're for, it's not what comes to mind), just "street" and "industrial." I have a room hung with pictures of stencil graffiti I took in Europe. I think a rug version (not a welcome mat outdoor material version) might look good in there. The room is softened a bit with overstuffed leather chairs but if I had these I might need to do a little more balancing - or give up let the whole room go modern/industrial. Certainly these would be a conversation piece. And I don't think they will become too common since a lot of people here clearly do not like them!

I'm undecided. They are kinda cute and interesting but on the other hand very silly.

I like this, but not sure if I would ever buy it or use it.

They should make one for New Orleans! The New Orleans water covers are really attractive, with stars on them. People steal them because they're so intricate and actually like a piece of artwork!

Love them! Very Unique!! I think the "Sewer" mat would go great in my teenage son's room -- especially since he was a huge Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle's fan when he was little. The Paris manhole cover rug actually has a pretty design. I think it would be perfect for a washroom or even my kitchen door that leads into the garage. Granted, it's not exactly my idea of a living room or bedroom rug, but I think either would be super in a dormitory or young man's apartment.

Hate it, I would only use it for a very themed room.

They also make them for the Washington DC Metro subway sidewalk covers. I bought one for my father and it serves as the back door mat -- he loves it. But then again, he is in charge of mass transit for the entire northeast, so of course he loves subways.

i hate these. but it would work if you were decorating a kid's room in "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles." Didn't the turtles always come out of the sewers?
