Sean Brown’s Rugs are Inspired By Throwback Records

Now that you’re spending a lot more time at home, it’s important to make your living space feel like it represents you. Toronto-based artist and designer Sean Brown’s rugs, which are inspired by throwback records, will add a personal touch into any living space and they’re ideal for any music lover.

Brown first posted images of a series of rugs he was working on to Twitter at the end of April, and before long, people took interest in his designs. To date, the original post has over 90,000 likes!

The rugs are handmade with a dye-cut center that mimics the shape of CDs and they feature designs from iconic records like Lil’ Kim’s Hard Core, Sade’s Love Deluxe, and Outkast’s Speakerboxxx/The Love Below.

Brown selects the CDs to recreate based on their aesthetic value of the original disc designs, not the nostalgia factor, “The whole reason I chose that specific album for the Jay-Z rug is not actually because it’s my favorite Jay-Z album to listen to from top to bottom. But in terms of design, it works best because of the gray,” he told Vogue.

The collection is available on Brown’s online store and in addition to the rugs, the Curves collection includes a visual essay on travel, research, and design titled In No Particular Order, incense holders, incense, a 500-piece puzzle, stickers, a reusable grocery bag featuring images from ’90 music videos by The Notorious B.I.G. and Missy Elliott, a Rubik’s cube, prints, a View-Master, and a woven throw.
