Have you heard about the Dallas FLOR store? FLOR is a manufacturer and marketer of design-inspired, eco-friendly carpet tiles… And they have invited me and all my readers to be guest designers at the FLOR’s Design Challenge 2015 on April 14.
On Tuesday, from 5-8 PM, FLOR will host FLOR’s National Design Challenge 2015 and will give visitors a chance to come to the store and design a sample rug. If your design wins, your creation will be added to the upcoming FLOR line for everyone to own as well! Isn’t that fun and cool? They will have more than 400 sample tiles available for visitors to work with your design might just be the next addition!
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, New York City, Houston, Miami, 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.
