ADVENTURES IN THE DESIGN WORLD™ (VEGA$ EDITION): A Brief Survey Of Casino Carpeting, Part 2

I warned you it wasn't over, so here it is: the second installment in our three=part series spotlighting the casino carpeting in Las Vegas. In today's edition we're taking a whirlwind trip around the world by visiting three lovely casinos that attempt to recreate the experience of visitng famous cities.

Let's begin our little trip in New York, New York. Three outstanding patterns to choose from here in the city that never sleeps; it's just like visiting the real thing except you don't have to ride the subway. Or experience any of the culture.




After soaking in the sites in the Big Apple, we make our way to The Venetian, where a little bit of Venice goes a long way. As with most of the newer casinos, the carpeting in The Venetian is thankfully more subdued than some of its elderly counterparts. We actually spent a little time inside admiring the cheesy replica streets and waterways -- and the gondolier who sang Volare in the style of an Elvis impersonator to the passengers on his boat was priceless.




And finally, we leave you with the faux impressionist carpeting that adorns the floors of Paris. It's just like those posters all your female friends in college had up on their dorm room walls, except it's socially acceptable to stomp all over it!

I suddenly feel the need to go to a movie theater lobby to get my garish carpeting fix...

I've seen similar carpeting at Fowoods Casino.
