So recently I went in search of some awesome rugs for my loft. I wasn’t sure what I wanted . . . but I knew that I wanted it to be modern and durable. And I also knew that it had to be stylish but not cost me an arm and leg. Enter FLOR carpet design squares. What these are is a system of carpet squares that you assemble to make your own custom rugs, runners or wall-to-wall designs or any shape or size. After visiting the store here in Atlanta and seeing the product up close, I’m obsessed. You will be too.
One of my biggest concerns in buying a large rug has been that my dog, age 11, is going to ruin it. If you look up “sloppy” in the dictionary, there is certainly a picture of my pug. She’s a good girl, but she’s not the neatest. I’ve also had a hard time finding a large rug that I like – and by “hard time” I mean that it’s been impossible. I love that FLOR enables me to design my own floor covering and that the choices are modern and very stylish. AND if my pug has a spill, I only need to replace ONE tile as opposed to the whole rug. Each FLOR square is 19.7 inches square, and to make a floor covering, you just need the tiles and their special stickers. And that’s it.
“But Amy,” you say, “I’m not good at designing things myself.” Well, no worries . . .
FLOR has a team of people to help you with that. They have design services, custom cutting and even professional installation if you don’t feel like doing it yourself. I went to the Atlanta store and worked with Kimberly and Barry – I haven’t picked my FLOR yet, but they walked me through the entire process and offered to help me figure out what I want (I’m going to come back and reveal at a later date!). They were so polite and it was such a pleasant experience. Plus Barry had the best shoes ever (hello dark purple brogues).
I could go on and on, but I’ll let you see for yourself. I picked some designs from their site that I am considering for my place, and I think you’ll like them too. Click through the slideshow to see my FLOR picks! Don’t forget to follow them on Facebook for the latest, too.
