“Abstract artists inspired PMB Designs’ painted canvas rugs. Unlike do-not-touch artwork, however, these pieces are made for high traffic. The hypoallergenic cotton canvases, including Chevron, are covered in Varathane to ensure they won’t fade and that spills bead up.”

“Designer Patricia Baun takes floor cloths as her canvas. Her Jules model is cotton layered atop a non-skid pad, painted with three coats of pigment, and finished with three coats of sealer for protection. The Asian-inspired pattern recalls the golds of autumn; Baun also offers three other colour combinations.”

“Turning the folksy floor-cloth on it’s head, Patricia Baun hand-makes canvas rugs that are best described as functional art. Adhering to a strictly modern idiom, rugs from PMB Designs are easy-to-clean, heavy on geometric patterns, and saturated with colour.”

“PMB Designs: Billed as ‘Art You Can Walk On,’ these hand-painted canvas rugs have been netting national acclaim for designer Patricia Baun ever since she burst onto the scene in 2001. Steeped in Baun’s signature eclectic colour schemes, the works would look just as good on your wall as on your floor.”

“These rugs from British Columbia’s PMB Designs are so colourful and modern, they’re like artwork for the floor. Made from heavy-duty canvas, then painted and sealed, they’re as durable as they are attractive.”
