Here's a new take on wallcoverings from Iranian designer Setareh Arefi. Setareh uses off-cuts from recycled rugs, carpets and felt to create an interesting patchwork of tiles for the wall. She further manipulates each piece through processes such as heat-transfer printing, laser-cutting, etching and coloring with eco dyes to give these remnants a whole new life. I'm not sure this image does the idea justice - but her website is still under development, so hopefully there's more to come.
