PHOTOS: Alexander McQueen Now Making Pillows And Rugs
If you’re in the market for some new home decor and have a nice amount of cash to burn, we highly recommend taking a look at Alexander McQueen’s collection for The Rug Company.
The collection features pillows and rugs in four different designs: Feathers, Hummingbirds, Skulls, and Military Brocade and will be sold in The Rug Company stores around the world. So, how much does one have to shell out to sleep with McQueen?
The Military Brocade rug is handmade and, depending on the size, can take up to eight months. It’s priced at $230 a square foot which means that a 12×9 foot version will run you $24,840, while an 18×12 rings up at $49,680.
Our favorite is the Hummingbird Aubusson rug with wool and metallic thread. It’s obviously gorgeous and obviously on backorder.
The pillows aren’t priced, but a similarly sized one by Vivienne Westwood costs $635, so assume you’re going up from there.
