Long time readers might recall the Net and Ball wallpaper by Absolute Zero Degrees. Well, that same 1950s design is now available for your floor, specifically the Net and Ball Rug at the Southbank Centre.

No surprise really – the design was originally produced for the carpet at the Royal Festival Hall back in 1951, the work of original architects Peter Moro and Leslie Martin, designed as the visual representation of sound. But with a ball.

The rug is part of a range of items using the classic look, including tote bags, mugs, bowls, vases and of course, that wallpaper. The rug itself is 60 x 90cm, exclusive to the Southbank Centre and sells online for £79.
