Better Living Through Design has tipped us off to the "Tattoo Rug," a new piece crafted by designer Sophie Conran for Crate and Barrel offshoot CB2. While we're sure Conran didn't have the Ed Hardy archive in mind when designing this piece, we couldn't help but think of trucker hats and embroidered jeans when we first saw it. What do you think—a classy, hand-tufted-Indian-wool update on a classic motif, or a piece fit for the foyer of Christian Audigier's Melrose compound?
