MIO: Corky Floor Play

15Sep06

Sorry for the innuendo, I couldn’t resist (it’s Friday after all). Anyway, MIO once again delivers a goodie for the home: ModuTiles. Designers Jaime Salm and Hannah Berkin are behind these place-and-play floor tiles, which give homeowners and apartment dwellers alike the opportunity to piece together their own rugs, runners, even an entire floor. Each set of six tan, and six chocolate cork shaped tiles covers 12 square feet and comes with peel and stick adhesive tabs for temporary installation. Or if you’ve fallen in love with your corky masterpiece you can install them permanently with standard cork flooring adhesives. A box of 12 will run you about $180 and are available directly through Mio.

Design Tip: For those who need a little design inspiration, you can take a look at some pattern suggestions here.

The Fab Factor
: 1) Made from eco-friendly cork, a material that is beautiful, soft underfoot, and renewable. 2) Their versatility invites you to reuse them over and over to create new looks. 3) Should one tile get stained or worn, you can replace individual pieces without having to toss the entire rug. 4) Chocolate floors are in right now. 5) If you’re an apartment dweller like me looking for style, this is a fantastic landlord-friendly flooring option [goodbye 70’s linoleum!].

Note to FG readers: I know I’ve been MIA this week: the mad combo of work and my thesis project caught up with me. Feel free to peruse the archives for ideas. Will be posting here and there until the end of September. Thanks!
