Schemed by Karin Mannerstål for Kateha, this grass green carpet is a perfect present for any football fan. The simple design characteristic clearly noticeable end zones and a starting line portraying a very subtle but unmistakable soccer field. Designer Karin Mannerstål has maked an approximation of a footie field with 100 percent, hand-tufted wool. So if you are looking for a carpet that has something unusual, then why not choose the football carpet, particularly if you are a male. Available from here for 167,29 €.
When I got home, I spent quite a bit of time calculating my measurements. I first laid the carpet out on the floor and trimmed it a bit to fit the room. Then I measured the length of the field and figured out how far apart my lines should be to allow for all of the field measurements as well as two endzones. I then cut the duct tape into 1″ wide strips and used them to mark a full line for every five yards on the field. I also appended short strips of tape to mark the 1-yard hash marks that appear on each side of the field and then again a third of the way in from each side of the field.
I started with a giant piece of indoor/outdoor “fake grass” carpet. The carpet I purchased came in a 12-foot-wide roll, so I got a 6-foot length of it, which was a good commensurate size for a football field, and just right for my kitchen floor. I also picked up a roll of white duct tape while I was at the store.
