Star Trek Rugs Add a Little Space to Your Floor

From 1998 to 2008, the Las Vegas Hilton featured an attraction called Star Trek: The Experience. I remember going to it during a Vegas vacation, and it was quite cheesy- but in a good way. But if you have fond memories of it, or just want to bring a little bit of Trek into your home, check this out.

It turns out that after the attraction closed, they sold off a bunch of never-used carpet remnants, and someone has turned these into sweet space-themed area rugs. The custom-made carpeting features a repeating pattern of a starship’s windows looking out into space, and would look great in any geeky living space. As a bonus, since the carpet was designed for use in a casino, they’re made for high-traffic wear, and should last a very long time.

Etsy seller YourHouseWins is selling the area rugs in sizes ranging from 2×2′ up to 6×9′, with prices starting at $175 for a single space window, up to $995 for the biggest area rug. So set your wallet to stun, and head over to Etsy if you want to add a cool piece of Star Trek memorabilia to your room.
