Note: We received FLOR Upcycle carpet squares to facilitate our review. We were not compensated monetarily for this post. All opinions are honest and are entirely those of myself and my family. I am a huge FLOR fan, and was prior to any review experience with the company.
We’ve been in our new house now for almost 8 months now. It always takes me a while to feel settled in to a new house, but adding finishing touches like frames on the wall and curtains on the window have made it feel more homey to me. And since we’ve got tile floors in the house (which is a big change after having had carpet pretty much all my life!), we’ve discovered that adding rugs is a great solution. It warms the space up, it provides soft spaces for the kids to play, and it absorbs sound so that our open floor plan and high ceilings don’t result in a cavernous feeling.
I’ve written before about how much we love FLOR carpet squares for our family. It was over six months ago that I wrote about our FLOR rug in the living room, and we still adore it. It’s plush and soft, and has held up extremely well to the kids and to our large Labrador/Golden Retriever mix.
Well, now FLOR has released their new Spring Collection, and there’s yet another reason to love these squares – they’re eco-friendly! I was particularly drawn to the Upcycle line. The striped design is modern and fun, and it’s created from random strands of recycled nylon yarns, so it’s as beautiful as it is earth-aware. The pattern and durability make this style a go-to for active spaces, which is why we decided to put it in our play area. The low pile is great for playing and for easy vacuuming.
The amber-hued stripe has flecks of gold that catch in the sunlight, adding a subtle sparkle to our rug that gives it a little something special. We loved the idea of alternating the direction of the squares to give the rug even more interest, and we think it looks great in the play area! The kids love it.
Of course, there are other amazing designs in the 2014 Spring Collection from FLOR – I was thisclose to going with the Ambrosia squares – don’t they look great under a dining table?
Be sure and take a look at the other offerings in the new collection – I was so impressed with all the different options. I really can’t speak highly enough of FLOR squares – we recommend them to family and friends, and they’ll always be my first go-to for floor coverings. Now I just need to figure out which room needs a FLOR rug next. :)
