We have been talking about rugs and carpets here in the site, and I was wondering how these fabrics have permeated other fields of interest.

Many of us love movies, much like we love our rugs. Here are some other Hollywood movies where rugs and carpets have made their prominent presence felt:

The Shining (1980) – Carpet in the Overlook Hotel

This thrilling masterpiece by director Stanley Kubrick was based on the equally suspenseful novel by Stephen King. One of the scene highlights involve a child named Danny Torrance biking through the hotel floors, on which a striking carpet with geometric patterns of red and orange adorn the floors.

Aladdin (1992) – The Magic Carpet

The world of thieves and Arabian nights became more exciting with Disney’s re-imagining of the classic genie tale. This time, the animation studio infused a magic carpet that swishes and swooshes to save Aladdin, and take him and Princess Jasmine to a memorable date with the tune “A Whole New World” singing in the background.

The Big Lebowski (1998)  – Rug of The Dude

This funny take on crime starts out with the film’s protagonist, Jeff “The Dude” Lebowski, being harassed by thugs, with one of them peeing on The Dude’s rug and ruining it. The movie goes through its various plots and twists, with vengeance partly dealt because of the ruined rug. Personally, I think The Dude has good taste in Persian rugs!
