My first introduction to carpet tile was through a kind manufacturer’s rep that helped me learn the ins-and-outs of carpet during my first year working as a designer. My first thought was, “How innovative. Why hasn’t this been done before?”
FLOR was one of the products I wanted to use but clients were stuck on the traditional use of rolled carpet. Ever watched an installation? Empty the room, lug in huge rolls of carpet, unroll, cut to fit, stretch, and secure. Sounds simple—but it isn’t. I tried it….once. That was enough.
How about a carpet tile installation? Move furniture aside, bring in boxes of carpet squares, open box, lay tiles end-to-end, and…..that’s all. You’re finished. Anyone can install carpet tile.
FLOR tiles are awesome and innovation is one of three parts behind FLOR’s design philosophy. The other two parts, replaceability (hugely important in kids’ rooms) and recycleability make using carpet tile just plain sensible.
Here’s a short (3:53) video from FLOR’s blog on “The Design Philosophy Behind FLOR”.
I think they have achieved their design goal. Flexible. Fabulous. FLOR.
