Cool Stuff: Maude Décor Handpainted Rugs

Just try to be in a bad mood in a room featuring one of the brightly hued and boldly graphic handpainted canvas floorcloths from Vancouver's Maude Décor. I don't think it's possible.

Dubbed "art you can walk on," the canvas rugs are the brainchild of creator Patricia Baun, who's given the traditional craft of painted floorcloths a distinctly modern interpretation.

Take a look:

The new Star Quest collection's Andromeda and Ursa Major designs.

Also new: The topographically inspired Famous Canadian Mountains series, including Baldy Mountain and Three Sisters.

Each handpainted rug is made to order and signed by the artist. They're available as runners or in sizes up to 8 by 10 feet, with prices ranging from $1,100 to $5,760 from Modern Tots or directly from Maude Décor.

Many of Baun's designs are also available as custom-order tufted wool rugs, as well as limited edition 6-by-9-inch ($30) or 8-by-12-inch ($40) archival prints.
