I am obsessed with design. In fact my For the home Board on Pinterest is one of my favorite virtual spaces on the planet. I love seeking out alternative spaces and tips to redecorate and make a space my own. This is why I am pretty excited that FLOR, manufacturer and marketer of eco-friendly carpet tiles has invited me (and consumers) to participate in their FLOR Design Challenge 2015, which is a creative competition being held at 11 FLOR stores, including their SOHO store located at 142 Wooster Street in New York City, where one grand prize winner will see their original rug design included in a future FLOR line.
Tomorrow on April 21 from 5-8 PM FLOR is inviting customers to visit their SOHO store to assemble a small-scale version of a FLOR rug using 30 sample-sized carpet tiles. For the competition, FLOR will have more than 400 sample tiles available for consumers to work with and design their own unique entry.
Part of what I LOVE about FLOR is that their tiles allow you to truly create a space that is uniquely yours- one which reflects your personality and home decor aesthetic. With FLOR, everyone can be a designer, and that’s what’s fun about the product. And of course their eco-friendly footprint makes them a perfect reason to incorporate if you are redesigning a child’s play room, your kid’s bedroom or even your kitchen!
FLOR offers carpet design squares to create custom rugs, runners, or wall-to-wall designs of any shape and size. FLOR presents a dynamic alternative to conventional floorcovering with endless design possibilities for an earth aware, transformational and striking design. Connected securely together with FLORdots™, one sided, non-toxic adhesives that can be easily removed or replaced, FLOR allows maximum flexibility and portability while delivering remarkable performance.
FLOR is also teaming up with eco-designer, Robin Wilson for this creative DIY design competition. All of the events (FLOR store locations: Austin, Dallas, Houston, Miami, Chicago, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Georgetown, San Francisco and Portland) will feature meet-and-greets with Robin Wilson, who will be on hand signing copies of her just-released book, Clean Design: Wellness for Your Lifestyle.
In addition to having fun being creative, contestants will make small scale versions of a FLOR rug and one winner from each event will win an 8×10 of their rug, plus go on to the finals – where one winner will be selected to see their rug in a future FLOR line. The winner also gets to name the rug and 50% of the net sales of the rug will go to a charity of their choice.
