The famous stairway carpet embroidered with Tilly Losch's footprints at Edward James' West Dean House. During their marriage, she ran up the stairs with wet feet and he was so taken with the pattern that he had a carpet made with her footprints woven into the fabric.

The marriage didn't last and after their divorce he supposedly replaced the carpet with one that had his dog's footprints on it instead.
