We're pretty sure that jokes about having Alexander McQueen underfoot are totally tasteless—seeing how he's dead and all—so we'll just tell you in a straightforward manner that The Rug Company has co-opted six prints from the late designer's repertoire for a series of rugs and carpeting. The collection will arrive in stores after the holiday season. Our sister site Curbed National reports:

McQueen follows Paul Smith, Diane von Furstenberg, and others who have contributed lines to The Rug Company· McQueen collab newest in The Rug Company's designer collection [Curbed]
