Most Wanted: Alexander McQueen x The Rug Co.

One of us is big on antiquated interiors and can't wait to get our hands Alexander McQueen's breathtaking signature mix of skulls, hummingbirds, feathers and military brocade for a new line of home goods for The Rug Company.

"The ‘Hummingbird’ cushion (above, wool, silk and metallic thread in Aubusson style) depicts delicate plumes of smoke winding throughout birds in flight."

"Inspired by brocade on military uniforms and incorporated with wreaths, ferns and a serpent, the ‘Military Brocade’ is a 200-knot wool and raised silk rug. The complexity and fine detail can only be achieved by hand-carving the finest silk yarn."
