Kimball Starr Interior Design has been highlighted in 21 Ways to Arrange Carpet Tiles Like a Pro, where FLOR carpet tiles have been used for the pattern shown.
Here’s an excerpt from the article by Becky Harris at the online design blog, Houzz, showing a San Francisco dining room done by Kimball Starr Interior Design.
“Carpet tiles are one of the biggest “I wish I’d thought of that” ideas I’ve ever seen. The possibilities for creating custom patterns and sizes are endless, or would at least require using that pesky factorial (!) thing from pre-calculus, or trig, or one of those high school math classes I still have nightmares about. But we don’t need to figure out the equation, we just need some inspiration for how to arrange ours.”
“Try orienting patterned tiles in different directions. Here the stripes run both vertically and horizontally throughout the composition. If you look really carefully at the pattern here, you’ll see that the stripes on each tile vary from top to bottom, and thus the variation not only goes 90 degrees but also 180 degrees…oh, I’m having high school math class flashbacks again…”
Hold on Becky, Kimball to the rescue! I actually like math…a lot! Especially geometry and proportions, and algebraic equations, oh don’t get me started.
It’s true. I have a penchant for carpet tiles. Specifically FLOR carpet tiles. I love to use them as an inexpensive floor covering option for heavy traffic areas. When a carpet tile becomes soiled, remove, recycle, and replace. FLOR squares are made with varied degrees of renewable and recycled materials—e.g., 100% natural, un-dyed wool and post-consumer waste like plastic soda and water bottles and they are designed to be among the lowest VOC emitting products in the residential flooring industry.
FLOR squares are non-toxic and contain an antimicrobial that inhibits the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew, so no unpleasant smelling off-gassing. Consumers are able to return their old squares back to FLOR so they can be recycled into new products, ensuring that none of their carpet tiles end up in a landfill.
On top of good for the earth, you’ll find names like Toy Poodle, Housepet, and Parakeet and in every color imaginable with capabilility to mix and match patterns to create your very own personal style. What’s not to love?
