A Bath ........ and a Brave Carpet

Visiting an elementary school a few weeks ago in America, I was intrigued to see a bathtub in the library full of cushions. It turns out it was not a funky way to store the cushions but a treat for students who did well. The treat was being allowed to sit in the bath reading during informal reading time - apparently it is really popular! I've not seen it before but.... what ever works!

What did catch my eye was the carpet..... I spend a lot of time with schools all over the place considering aspects of design, including floor coverings. Never have I seen a carpet like this is a school.... it's certainly..... well a brave choice at least.

Perhaps the carpet would make a cool wall tapestry? Neat idea with the cushions in the bath though.
