POW! BOFF! BAM! No, you aren't reading onomatopoeia's from a Batman comic, but these would be the sounds of colour and pattern coming to life from an Amy Butler Rug. Each pattern of these hand-tufted rugs are bursting with vibrancy. Gone are the wash of blah blah neutral throw rugs, kick it up a notch and live alittle, and for goodness sake add some much needed colour in your life. Oh my, these rugs do get me going don't they? This hot number is called Caracas.
Artistic Tile carries an irresistible interlocking stone mosaic tile line called "Chateau". There are four styles available, this one is named Danse Blanc. The scrolling coils of marble seem to defy the very properties of cold stone. The flawless patterns are achieved by their modern technology of waterjet to produce a perfectly intertwining tile. Made to order, these custom tiles can be ordered in other tones and stone combinations.
New on my radar is a fantastic company; Preverco. Preverco has one of the most versatile product lines available allowing you to choose plank size, hardwood to engineered, and stains to suit all levels in your home. And this hardwood has made me super excited, check out the Zebra 5 3/16" plank hardwood, it is outstanding! It is no wonder this product is winning the praise of fellow designers; this floor is HAUTE! The red oak flooring is striking with rich black graining, and a white all over stain. Not for the faint of heart, this floor hits a high note with contemporary and fun-traditional design. Picture lots of black paired up with this! I am seeing a trend leaning toward getting back to grains, and why not with domestic, local wood. Well done Preverco.
Liquifloor is a tough new floor tiles consisting of colored liquid sealed into transparent tiles. When pressure is applied by walking across the floor, the liquids literally move and swirls around your feet. Choose from a wide range of colors and color combinations from subtle pastel shades to the brightest reds, yellows, greens and a dazzling selection of metallics by Café interiors. This floor would be fabulous in fun commercial applications.
Looking for something sumptuous to drap across your floor? The Scroll Silk and Wool Rug from Williams Sonoma is a wonderful choice. The pattern is classic, but not to ornate; to translate- it will work in modern and traditional settings very well! It is hand knotted in Tibet from fine wool and given a raised pattern of interwoven silk. The chocolate color is divine, and other fabulous colors are available too like "New Rust" or "Pearl".
