Something this horrific can’t possibly be an accident. I mean, it takes a genius to come up with something so offensive to the eye. Sure enough, the insanely appalling carpets that adorn Vegas casinos are designed to keep you gambling.

Like some sort of vile afterbirth after a meeting of the 1990s and an insane asylum patient, casino carpets seem to violate every design rule established over, say, the past several thousand years. An art student would probably burst into flames the moment they walked in. But intrepid photographer Chris Maluszynski somehow managed to stare (and wonderfully photograph) a series of shocking casino floors without giving himself a brain haemorrhage, and is showing off his results in a new exhibition, Las Vegas Carpets.
