The FLOR Design Challenge 2015 in Miami May 5th
For all my home decor and decorating Mommies: FLOR, the manufacturer and marketer of design-inspired, eco-friendly carpet tiles, is launching its first creative competition, The FLOR Design Challenge 2015 at their Miami store located at 127 NE 40th Street THIS Tuesday, May 5, from 5pm-8pm.
FLOR offers more than 600 individual carpet squares for consumers to use to create original rug designs. FLOR is inviting customers to assemble a small-scale version of a FLOR rug using 30 sample-sized carpet tiles. For the FLOR’s Design Challenge 2015, FLOR will have more than 400 sample tiles available for consumers to work with and design their own unique entry.
If you’re not familiar with the FLOR concept, it’s amazing. Especially perfect for kids rooms, playrooms, nurseries, because the carpeted tiles can be swapped out if a tile gets stained or marked (we all know Sharpies and kids don’t mix well together!) The FLOR system is even great once the baby is ready to transition from a nursery to a “big girl or big boy” room, you just lift up the tiles, and swap them out with a different design. Presto!
“Our customers inspire us every day as they create new and innovative looks with our carpet tiles that reflect their own home and personality,” said Rick Kilmer, president, FLOR. “With FLOR, everyone can be a designer, that is what’s fun about our product. I am really looking forward to seeing the creativity of the designs—and sharing the winner’s vision with all FLOR customers.”
The event will also feature a meet-and-greet with award-winning designer Robin Wilson, who will be on hand signing copies of her just-released book, Clean Design: Wellness for Your Lifestyle.
Wilson, along with FLOR employees, will select the top rug design submitted that night. FLOR will host similar events at 10 FLOR store locations: Austin, Dallas, SOHO, Houston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Georgetown, San Francisco, and Portland. Wilson will be at all of the events signing copies of her new book and helping to select the top rug designs. The 11 finalists will win an 8 x 10 version of their rug design (retail value $900).
From July 6 through July 15, the 11 finalists’ rugs will be posted on www.FLOR.com/designchallenge where anyone is invited to log on and vote for their favorite design. The top vote-getter will see their rug in a future FLOR line. In addition, 50 percent of the net proceeds from the sale of the rug will go to a charity of the winner’s choice (in collaboration with FLOR). The winner will also have the opportunity to name the rug, which will be on display at select FLOR retail stores across the country.
Fun, right? Grab one of your girlfriends that loves home decorating as much as you do and go! I would love to see a Mafia-inspired FLOR design!
