I showed you the wonderful woods wallpaper that caught my eye in a favorite Design*Sponge sneak peek tour. There was more to love in that home, though, including the pink patterned throw rug in the kitchen.

Who made it, I wondered? Thankfully it wasn't hard to find the source.

Owner Sonja Rasula raves to Design*Sponge about the rug in her kitchen: "[It's] amazing because it's very soft and durable, and can be put in the washing machine. Everyone asks me where I bought it," she says. "At Plastica!"

Plastica? I wasn't familiar with the store, but one Google search later and I was there. The Stockholm Savanne Rug is actually a Swedish floor mat made of recycled plastic strips. It comes in six colors and seven sizes, and ranges in price from $60 to $240. (That was the only bummer — I thought the price was a little steep for a kitchen floor mat.) The colors are rich and chic, with several options for different spaces. I love the pink, obviously!

And as is essential for any kitchen rug, the rug is totally machine washable and the plastic components make it resistant to mold. Plus, it's made of a "thick weave that is comfortable to walk on" — certainly important for those long cooking marathons!

Find It! Stockholm Savanne Rugs, $60 - $235 at Plastica

All of that together makes it pretty close to the perfect kitchen rug in my view. I'd buy it in a second if it was just a little cheaper.

I'm curious: Do you have one of these Swedish plastic floor mats in your kitchen? Or another kitchen throw rug that you love and would recommend?
