FLOR Review and Giveaway!

April 2010 039

The wonderful people at FLOR recently sent me a 5’ x 7’ “rug in their new lattice pattern. I was excited about it because I was looking for a new rug for my breakfast room and I loved the Lattice pattern in the bisque/ cinnabar combination. The living areas in my home feature a combination of chocolate hues and orange, so it was the perfect addition. Plus, I had been curious about this product for a while now. It is truly innovative!

Putting the rug together was a total breeze! Each 19.7" x 19.7" tile attaches really easily with FLORdots, these little, adhesive circles that hold everything in place without the need for nails, glue, or padding. So far, it has held up beautifully! The quality of the tiles is quite nice and the seams are not at all obvious. Each tile has a set of arrows printed on the backside in order to help you place the pattern in the correct direction. The total installation was a breeze and only took about fifteen minutes!

FLOR tiles are a fabulous product for anyone with children or pets because if an accident or spill should occur, you can always replace a single tile and the rug is like new again. It certainly doesn’t hurt that the tiles are rather affordable!

Ready for its close-up: “A warm and inviting accent for any room, these cut-and-loop tiles have a distinctly modern appeal. Soft tufting creates a design of intricately interlaced lines for a beautifully refined effect.”

Tell Me What You Think! leave a comment...

  1. I love this rug concept! It’s genius! My favorite is the MOD ZEBRA for my apartment! It would be dreamy! I was hoping to find a zig zag pattern piece but maybe that will be coming soon!

  2. So often I simply skip by the comment section and not enter, however this is a totally different scenario. I have been watching these in the magazines for months now ans loving them. I hear fabulous reviews of them as well. I would really really love the House Pet 2 rug kit. I love the purple and gold notes on this one, plus it would look divine in my office. I have old tavern floors that would accent this so nicely.

  3. This is so timely! I was just on Flor this morning looking for a rug for my LR makeover. This could really help out decor on a small budget!

    I think I would actually go with the lattice in either the ginger/peat or the bisque cinnabar. I think the latter since I have a lot of brown in the room and want to do a pop of color.

    I’m following you through Google Reader and on Twitter (carrieg777 on Twitter).

  4. I’ve been obsessed with Flor’s Souk Chic Rug for nearly 2 years. I’ve ordered the sample and love it – I just haven’t gotten around to ordering the rug!

  5. Oooh, that side by side in black and white is so chic! But, if I were lucky enough to win I’d choose the Modern Mix in Grey. I follow already =)

  6. I follow you on Twitter (I’m “soabt”). I have been eyeing that faux bois for a while now, and would LOVE to get my hands on it! Thanks for the contest. Fingers crossed!

  7. What a fun contest! I’m notorious for being indecisive, so I am between “Well Suited” in truffle or “Shiny Happy Stripe” in silver/cream.

    I’m following you on twitter and in google reader (tiwtter-@amandaredman)

    Hopefully being signed into my google account gives you my email!

  8. Paloma,

    I love FLOR. We are in transition and I can’t wait to have a new home so that I can get new rugs!!! And to win one would be even better. I would get the Shirt Strip in French Cuff for my son’s room.

  9. WOW!! Fabulous giveaway! There are soooo many great choices but I think my favorite is the Regatta Stripe in Cinnabar.

    I am already a follower on Google and Facebook. 🙂


  10. WOW!! Fabulous giveaway~ I love FLOR rugs. There are soooo many great choice but I think my favorite is the Regatta Stripe in Cinnabar.

  11. im so excited for this for two reasons. one-id love to win. and two-i was totally going to post asking anyone if they have used FLOR, bc im so tempted!!!


  12. What a fun giveaway! There were so many that I absolutely loved. I love the Flora Flora for a little girl’s room. And I love the Conservatory Garden and I looked at others that are in the brown shades and wheat colors. Beautiful.

  13. I’m in the process of moving to a new apartment and have been desperately looking for a new rug. I didn’t even think to check out FLOR! I love the Faux Bois. The colors are subtle enough to break up the bright accents in my living room. What a fun giveaway!


  14. I tried to enter earlier but I don’t think it worked!
    I follow you on Twitter (Arielle_Wren) and I just became a fan on Facebook!

    I discovered your blog right after I moved into my dream apartment in NYC and it gave me so many wonderful ideas and inspirations for my small yet fabulous living space. Unfortunately I no longer have my dream apartment but I still love collecting amazing pieces to furnish my temporary dwellings in Philadelphia and I stock pile things for when I move back to NYC. I would love the Side By Side because I could utilize it now and it will look amazing in my next fabulous New York apartment.

  15. I would definitely get the side by side in black and white as I’m obsessed with all rugs black and white in stripes or chevrons right now! Having just moved into my first home a few months ago, there are infinite possibilities on where to place it!

  16. i would love the lattice or the faux bois, tho i just read someone’s blog that said you can see the seams on the faux bois.

    just became a follower on google, and i have been an email subsriber for some time now.

  17. What a great giveaway! I’m a chicken when it comes to decorating, so I’d probably end up picking something simple like the Short Shag in bisque.

  18. LOVE this give away- and I could TOTALLY use it. I have been dying for a rug in my hallway to keep dirt, etc to a minimum in our bedroom.

    I would LOVE the lattice one or the finer things- it would be so beyond perfect!!

    I love this giveaway!!

  19. So many excellent choices! We already have a FLOR rug in our home but I have been lusting after the side by side in black and faux bois for months!

  20. I love the Faux Bois in Bisque/Raincloud. I’ve been thinking about getting them for a few weeks so you read my mind with this post and giveaway! Even though I never win anything, I feel like this contest it’s kind of meant to be! I will cross all my fingers and toes!

  23. I really love the lattice pattern. But the Souk Chic is catching my eye especially too…where could I ever use that one?!
    I just added you to my blogs I follow on blogger. 🙂 (I’ve been follwing for awhile on google reader)

  24. I love your dinning room chairs. Where are they from? I am renovating my house and need new dinning room furniture and your chairs are amazing.

  25. What a wonderful giveaway. I follow La Dolce Vita on Twitter. I’m @brideandadog. I love the Souk Chic Rug Kit from FLOR. It would be the perfect accent for our living room.

  26. Love the one you selected! The color is gorgeous and looks great with your dining room set.

    I just spent entirely too much time on their website and love everything!! My faves are the Metadoodle Sassy Silver and the Feeling Groovy Pink.

    I am now a follower of your blog! Fingers crossed!


  27. I know you featured it, so I’m not being very original, but I LOVE Martha’s Faux Bois in Moon/Bisque! I just love this look. Thanks!

  28. Ohhhh, so many great styles to choose from! I’ve been wanting to give a Flor rug a try at my house. I think I’d choose either the Faux Bois, or something tone-on-tone like the Straight & Narrow stripes. Way too many fantastic choices! 🙂

    I’d love to own the Botanicals print in Moss. I think it would be a great additional to my living room. (email addy is in my blogger profile). Thanks!

  31. I love the lattice rug. I am also the proud owner of FLOR tiles in my children’s play area….Thank goodness for FLOR or I would be replacing the carpet every year!

  32. LaDV – I am finishing (okay, nothing is ever finished in our house) a bath – the colors and textures of Twist&Shout in seafoam and cream would be ideal – thanks for pointing me to FLOR – Kimberly @ the_reVibe
