Lately I’ve been seeing so many interesting flooring products. I just can’t get enough! Below are a few of my favorite flooring finds.
Tsar – Geometrics Collection
First up is this fun area rug from Tsar. At first glance, the hexagons read as colorful ceramic tiles. Upon closer inspection you see that the mosaic is actually crafted from hand-tufted New Zealand Wool. This eye – tricking effect is achieved by varying the fiber heights to create “tiles” and “grout.” Best yet – there are no limitations on size and an abundance of colors from which to choose!
Jamie Beckwith Collection – Enigma Series
I love a beautiful wood floor and the Jamie Beckwith Collection has created a whole new look to enjoy. The Enigma Series offers formats ranging from tile shapes typically associated with ceramic or stone to unusually ornamental strips. The 14 patterns are produced in walnut and white oak and can be stained in one of six water-based, no-VOC colors. From the undulating strips of Wave to the graphic pattern of Dice, these floors are sure to make a statement.
Edward Fields Carpet Makers – Alpha Workshops Edition
The new collection Edward Fields Carpet Makers combines great style with a great cause. Executive Director of Alpha Workshops, Kenneth Wampler, had trained people living with HIV and AIDS to create décor items such as furniture, lamps, wallpaper, and decorative finishes, but never flooring. That changed with Edward Field’s Alpha Workshops Edition. These hand-tufted designs take cues from nature, interpreting marble (my personal favorite), streaks of flax, a finish on a clay sculpture, and a Japanese lacquering technique.
Berkshire Series – Florida Tile
Digital printing on Porcelain tile has made great strides. The Berkshire Series from Florida Tile is one of the latest examples. The digital printing process combined with rich colors and a hand-scraped surface texture creates a wood look tile that makes you look twice. If you have a high traffic or wet area that natural wood would not hold up to this is a great option to consider – both in residential and commercial projects.
Which of these grabs your eye?
