The Review-Journal popped in on Dr. David Schwartz to discuss the aesthetics and function of those while casino carpet designs that we all know and love so well. Included in the article is a little casino carpet photo quiz and a reprint of Dr. S's timeless distillation of casino carpeting initially published on his Casino Carpet Gallery at dieiscast.com.

Take it away Dave:

Casino carpet is known as an exercise in deliberate bad taste that somehow encourages people to gamble.

More from the Review Journal.

Comments & Discussion:

The carpet is meant to keep you looking up around eye level. Thus, you can see the slot machines, ergo no straight lines anywhere; if they are smart. long linear curves that meander through a casino to make you catch a long gaze at the slot machines, possibly, hopefully people having fun. They want you dazed and confused, not pensive and appreciative of the aesthetic value
