Even before we found out we were having a baby, we were looking forward to redecorating a room for a little one. So, once we knew we were having an actual baby, we started throwing around ideas. It should be colorful. Crazy colorful. Our home more generally is full of nutty colors but a kid’s room seemed like a perfect opportunity to go all out on color.
While the website was fun to use, we wanted to see the tiles in person before we ordered something for the baby’s room. We headed to the Flor store near us (in Chicago) and worked with Kim, who showed us all sorts of tiles. After working with us for awhile, helping us zero in on a palette of tiles we liked, and seeing that we were open to lots of ideas, Kim suggested taking the tiles we liked and laying them out in a striped pattern. She laid it out on her laptop (and even emailed us a .pdf of the design to use when we set up the tiles). We hadn’t thought of stripes but immediately felt like it was a super cool way to capitalize on the modularity of Flor tiles.
We had a bunch of fun putting the tiles together and the Flor definitely fulfilled our desire for a unique and nutty carpet in our baby’s room. We really love her room, hopefully she will too!

We are excited to announce the opening of our sixth FLOR Store in Houston, Texas.
Located at 2800 Kirby Drive in the West Ave. River Oaks shopping district, our Houston store shows off all the possibilities that FLOR can bring to your space. In addition to our inspiring vignettes, you will find a 30-foot runner that lets the tiles do the talking; telling a color, texture and pattern story from the front of the store to the back.
With already existing stores in New York, Chicago, Santa Monica, Atlanta and Dallas, the Houston store provides another opportunity for FLOR fans to come in and experience what we like to call “The Toe Test.”
We have a team of experienced FLOR design consultants available – either in-store or in-home through specially-scheduled appointments – to help choose styles, coordinate colors and answer questions on care or assembly.
The design of the Houston store is also in keeping with this responsible design philosophy, featuring energy efficient lighting, HVAC and mechanical systems, environmentally conscious wood floors, maximum use of natural lighting through floor-to-ceiling windows and paperless receipts.
Be sure to spot in and pay us a visit. The Houston store hours are Monday – Saturday, 10:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. and Sunday, noon – 5:00 p.m. For more information on all of our FLOR Stores visit FLOR.com
