We have a tiger rug in our new kitchen.
Many might think it, well, idiosyncratic. Or silly.
There are some design reasons it makes sense: he brings the right splash of orange-red that completes the adjacent dining room rug. And yes, it justifies the red knobs on the oven.
But perhaps more important than all of that, and perhaps less “important” and yet crucial, he simply makes us smile and brings us joy.
And so we have a tiger rug in our kitchen.
