"A handcrafted felted wool floor mat from Turkey with a gorgeous decoration adding further flair. 'We love these felt items,' notes Jason Oliver. 'So unique, so unusual, and yet so functional. And so cushy. This colorful mat makes me want to kick off my shoes and dance like there's no tomorrow to the tunes of Miss Peggy Lee.'"
John Loecke and Jason Oliver Nixon are the dynamic duo behind Madcap Cottage, their Brooklyn-based interior design firm. Known for their whimsical use of color and pattern, the Madcap gents scour the world for eclectic finds that capture their unique and gimlet-eyed view of the world. Imagine a British country house that pairs Granny's antiques and a spirited dash of chinoiserie chic with a side of Moroccan marvelous and Indian élan. "If you are looking for beige and boring," says Jason, "go bark up someone else's tree."
