While I was in the process of looking for area rugs to use in my Living Room Design, I received a catalog in the mail from FLOR. I was familiar with FLOR Carpet Tiles, but when I opened the catalog, I was smitten with their new designs. For those that are not familiar with FLOR, it is an "innovative system of carpet squares that you assemble to create custom rugs, runners or [even] wall-to-wall designs."
|This is the picture (via FLOR.com) that first caught my eye and made me want to see what FLOR had to offer.|
I was not only impressed by their designs, but I liked the idea that I could put the patterns together myself to create my own unique, custom rug.
I had a hard time narrowing down my choices, but I finally decided on Lasting Grateness in black. I liked the bold, graphic pattern. (That, and I couldn't quite convince the Hubby that the zebra print would look good in the room. Lol!)
When the box arrived with my tiles, I pulled them out and plopped them on the ground in the living room. That's when the fun began. Putting the rug together was a bit like putting a puzzle together. (Note: the tiles are not meant to fit together in a pattern...they are meant to be random.)
Boy 3 and I had a good time working together to decide where each square should go. Once we finally decided on the right configuration for the tiles (don't I look happy?)...
I used the FLOR dots to attach the tiles to one another. And that was it!
One of the great things about this rug - especially for a family with little kids - is the fact that if one of the tiles gets stained or otherwise destroyed, just that tile can be replaced instead of having to replace an entire rug. In addition, FLOR tiles are environmentally friendly and can even be recycled once they have outlived their usefulness.
I'm really happy with my FLOR custom rug. And I love the graphic punch it adds to the room!
