1 Flor, 3 Ways.




After pinning a few feasible rug options for the studio earlier this year, my bubble burst when Scott reminded me that my office chair had wheels. While I prefer my someday (much larger) studio to have an ooshy, cushy rug for my bare toes, the boy had a point. How was I to roll with all the traction of a too-thick carpet? After a few days of denial, I returned to the drawing board and found Flor’s Sophistikat.

We have Flor in our entryway, and a quick test roll confirmed that I could have my cake and eat it too. We picked up a few samples from their Chicago showroom (where we saw Jackie Boy’s paws on their wall!), and easily picked Sophistikat over the other contender, Road to Damaskus.

The winning layout? 1!

The uneven stripes were just off enough to work, and the long lines seem to exaggerate the length in my bitty room. (Although admittedly, the choice was tough.)

Which would you have picked?

    I like choice #1 the best, as well. For the reasons you mentioned :)ReplyCancel

  • You know, I like number 1, but number 3 is awesome too. The nice thing is, if you change your mind, you can change the pattern. Love Flor for the versatility.ReplyCancel

  • Melissa // thefauxmartha3.6.12 - 9:34 AM

    Gosh, I love every last pattern. Love how the room is turning out!ReplyCancel

  • Laura @ DMHB3.6.12 - 9:35 AM

    I personally love the first option. It looks so nice!ReplyCancel

  • Elisa3.6.12 - 9:37 AM

    I dig #3 but it’s off enough that it makes me twitchy. Number 1 for sure!ReplyCancel

  • Jimmy3.6.12 - 9:59 AM

    Nicely done. That Flor product is great for small spaces – customizable, stylish, etc. I almost always shy away from buying traditional rugs for the reason that I know they will never fit my small apartment spaces the way I’d want.

    Looks good. I need to give this stuff more consideration next time.ReplyCancel

    One is my favorite layout too – love that color! So beautiful!ReplyCancel

  • Miranda @boucksy3.6.12 - 11:11 AM

    I love all of the options, but for the reasons you mentioned, prefer #1 out of them all. I LOVE the blue (reminisce of the wall that once was?) and can definitely tell it elongates the room.ReplyCancel

  • Kim3.6.12 - 11:17 AM

    Miranda, yup, a tribute to the blue wall that was!ReplyCancel

  • Alexis3.6.12 - 1:24 PM

    I love the 3rd version! Your studio is coming together so prettily, good job :)ReplyCancel

  • Jen3.6.12 - 1:35 PM

    So cute! I love all versions. Totally cool that you can switch it up when you get tired of one layout.ReplyCancel

  • Kalli3.6.12 - 1:59 PM

    I like them all but your reason for choosing #1 makes a lot of sense. The other two might be also be a little too attention-pulling for the room as a whole.ReplyCancel

  • I like #3 but I think it might have overpowered the small room, so I support your choosing #1 :)ReplyCancel

  • Janet3.6.12 - 3:59 PM

    I love the versitility of what you got. I may choose one layout one month and change it just because I can. I would have started with 3 just for the interest.ReplyCancel

  • Jill3.8.12 - 7:35 PM

    #1 for sure! I love it!ReplyCancel

  • Alichia3.12.12 - 10:29 PM

    #3. Such a fun pattern. But you were right, would have been a tough choice — but you can change it every week if you want :)ReplyCancel
