I know it's nitpicky, but what the hell is going on with that rug/carpet and its jog around the bookcase?

Their decorator told them it must extend beyond the furniture by that amount, bookshelf be damned!

The part posted is a extension to a house, so it could be do to the shape of the old house.

They do the same thing on the other side of the room, so I have to conclude that it's some misguided evocation of wall-to-wall.

I know this house. Looks very cool from the street, and stands in pretty stark contrast to the more "traditional" homes around it. Never realized it was this nice, however.

I always loved this for inspiration for a killer bachelor pad.  It feels like it challenges convential norms in a very Margiela-esque way, which I love.  I would just like to see this done in all white and sans railing.

My vote is bathroom, as it looks like you can douche in it.

Don't know, but I always thought of it as a living room.

It really isn't avant garde at all. It's really just fucking awful.

(1.)  Don't know how you, personally, define Avante-Garde then. (2.) "Good taste is a gift, but bad taste is a privilege."

I define it as something on the very leading edge, and this looks like the wet dream of Russian mafia enforcer who read one too many bad comic books in the zone.

Leaving aside the appearance of the room, I don't understand the practical usage. The pool (?) zig-zags, has a bench in it, and then has auxiliary pools beside it. What gives?
