FLOR is an innovative system of carpet squares that you assemble to create custom rugs, runners or wall to wall designs of any shape or size.
The beautiful thing about FLOR is that the squares connect securely together with FLORdots – no nails, padding or glue. They can be easily replaced, allowing flexibility and portability along with beauty and remarkable performance.
The creative options are what I also love. You can create solids, vintage looks, stripes, sisals, graphics, wool and even purchase area rugs created by FLOR. There is a look for every room.
It is clearly a no-brainer when our clients tell us they would like something beautiful but are wary of expensive carpets because of kids, dogs, and everyday living. That’s where FLOR is our lifesaver. I can’t even count how many projects we have used it in. Here are just a few:
We used a whimsical, color block for this commercial space. It happens to be the “brand” colors for this client.
And here, a dining room of all places, where lots of spills could happen, we used a solid texture which worked wonderfully for a family with 2 young children. The other advantage to FLOR is if a really “beyond the normal” mess occurs, we suggest purchasing a few “extra” tiles so they can be swapped out!
Not only is FLOR attractive and functional, the company is very environmentally friendly. They have a return and recycle program where you can send back your tiles once they have lived their useful life. This is how it works: You package up the squares, call FLOR and they will mail you a pre-paid UPS label based on the weight of your package. The carpet portion is sent to be made into recycled nylon fibers and the backing is shredded into small pellets to create post consumer recycled GlasBac Re backing.
Not only do they care about the environment, they also participate in Carpet for a Cause where they involve themselves in multiple projects to help others. For one week in November, they are donating one FLOR square for every order placed to donate FLOR rugs to more than 30 classrooms across the country with more donations in the works.
