Describe your interior design style: I would have to say a combination of eclectic, mid century modern with a touch of vintage. I love re-purposed furniture and a room that displays tasteful artwork.

Johnson’s story…

Having recently moved into a historic high rise in Chicago, I became fascinated with the coalescence of vintage architecture in a modern, urban landscape. I felt the apartment’s interior design should portray this fusion of old and new. Through FLOR designs I was able to create a rug using old-world materials with a modern aesthetic.

Upon selecting a variety of FLOR styles, I was immediately drawn to the natural softness of the sustainable English wools in the Floresse collection. Inspired by the retro game of Tetris, I incorporate a random geometric design with half tiles in Shear Indulgence and Manx styles. The difference in pile heights brought together not only a textured rug but a multi-dimensional work of art.


My FLOR design has become a décor gem and the centerpiece of the interior space. The apartment’s traditional fireplace has been transformed, complimented by the rug’s sleek appearance and luxurious feel.

Even my cat, Roxie, seems to enjoy this new addition to our home as it has become one of her favorite places to relax.

Isn’t Johnson’s space amazing? He’s not one to brag, so we’ll do that on his behalf, those drawings above are originals from him. Simply beautiful!
