I am so excited about my new FLOR! Come and have a look.

I am so happy to tell you about a new line of floor covering that we, at Martha Stewart Living, have created in partnership with a company called FLOR. (They are also on Twitter) This company prides itself with fine workmanship and a strong commitment to the environment.  FLOR worked closely with the MSLO design team to create a contemporary color pallet and innovative patterns for the collection.  It’s actually an entire modular floor system and we are so proud of this line.

This system is made up of individual squares, measuring 20” X 20” and come in fantastic colors and patterns, which can be used individually or mixed and matched for original and personal designs.  Rather than adhering to a bare floor, these carpet tiles are joined together at the corners with little circles called FLORdots.  Nothing permanent or toxic is used.  In fact, FLOR tiles are made from recycled materials and are extremely durable and washable.  All you do is lift the square or squares, wash them clean, and lay them back down.  Just the other day, my blog studio was carpeted with FLOR tiles and I simply love how it looks.

Here's a good shot of the blog studio taken last summer. As you can see, it's a rather cavernous space and the cement floor made it a very 'loud' room. The cement was also quite cold on the feet during winter.
