Create a temporary area rug with carpet tiles.
Flor's versatile carpet squares go menswear in looped tweed (left) and soft, heathered felt (right). Plus, 80% post-consumer fibres and a great price tag make going green easy and affordable. Arrange a few carpet tiles in one solid colour, or choose two colours for a punchy checked pattern. Come spring, you can lift them up and store them away if you prefer to showcase bare floors in warmer weather.
