Those rugs would look good in our office. :) I love to put up rugs here as I also love to lie down there

and rub it softly with my hands.

Thanks for sharing. I'll go check out your other entries about Alexander Girard's designs. This is

interesting.

I love the bright colors and the fun sun designs.

I also like the Souk Chic.

Girard's designs remind me of happy summer days. I also love the Twiggy Moss...not to mention the cool wide waled/textured ones. SO many to choose from!

By Blogger HollowSquirrel, at 6/02/2008 7:36 PM  

I love the Disney prints. These rugs look very comfy and durable. Thanks so much for the opportunity.

I love Alexander Girard's designs, they are fun, colorful, young, vibrant, just fantastic! Another favorite of mine is the Martha Stewart needlepoint stripe in fawn, would look good in my hallway! Thanks for the great giveaway.

Alexander Girard's stuff makes me smile. Even in the middle of winter when it's been raining for 40 days straight.

And as for the Flor prints... well, I think I just need to have one of each tile so that I can make a crazy patchwork rug to cover my whole house.

By Blogger Wendy, at 6/02/2008 10:33 PM  

I love how bright and eclectic his designs are. Totally my style.

I also adore the "Souk Chic" flor design in multi!

I love alexander girard's designs- the colors and prints, make me happy. Esp the sun's. They can be bright and bit, but never feel overdone. One of my favorite FLOR carpet designs is the Between the Lines set. laurachilton {at} hotmail {dot} com

By Blogger laura, at 6/03/2008 12:06 AM  

Love his designs - very modern and abstract. One of my other favorites is Willow.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Flor! Alexander's designs are so playful and fun...sure to cheer up any room...and warm any home! La Fonda Del Sol - Pequeno is my FAVORITE! :)

By Blogger BrineS, at 6/03/2008 1:47 AM  

Girard's design's are so cheerful and bright. I also love the "soux chic" and "if there be thorn's" patterns at Flor.

By Blogger Kristen M., at 6/03/2008 4:03 AM  

I just love his designs...I love flor because you can place them however you want..great concept...

I LOVE his designs and would LOVE to win! My daughter's room is in such desperate need of a rug over the wood floor, and she would totally go nuts to win. I like Between The Lines. Thanx for the giveaway. cdziuba@aol.com

By OpenID cdziuba, at 6/03/2008 4:38 AM  

I love the FLOR patterns, colors, playfulness, and ecological basis. My favorite (today, anyway) is the Organic Overlay in Foliage.

By Blogger Aisling, at 6/03/2008 4:50 AM  

Love the one you have in the contest....but also love the colours in "souk chic". What a great discovery!

By Blogger E. Shen, at 6/03/2008 5:15 AM  

These rugs are lovely and functional. I love the Trill Ride!

By Blogger mar, at 6/03/2008 5:32 AM  

I love these bold, colorful designs. I've been looking at the everyday rugs at Lowe's, but these are awesome and it will be hard to go back to Basics.

By Blogger Vickie, at 6/03/2008 5:38 AM  

I absolutely adore Alexander Girard's prints. My husband laughs and says "Oh, now you have a favorite RUG designer"? Ah but, Girard is so much more than that! Artistry divine!
My favorite from the site comes naturally, from his collection. I love the La Fonda del Sol Pequeno!
I have the perfect room for the giveaway rug! I just remodeled the dining room and INSISTED on all cream, cream walls, cream rug. The rug looks horrible but I cannot admit to hubby. To win this would be a dream. But I don't want anybody walkin on it...

By Blogger mannequin, at 6/03/2008 5:50 AM  

Love Flor and love Alexander Girard! In fact thought of you when I saw his dolls at the SF MOMA shop last month.

I love whichever Flor pattern will stand up to the kids and the dawg so I'm guessing housepet. But I'd really love the AG rug!

By Blogger Mom101, at 6/03/2008 5:56 AM  

What's not to love - what a great partnership! i've always thought about creating a FLOR rug, but never was totally in love with any of the designs, though I do love Twiggy and Stampede, but NOW - OH, MY!

By Blogger Molly & Bea & T., Tra-Lee, at 6/03/2008 6:00 AM  

Girard's designs are just fun, kind of psychedelic, and gorgeous colors. Besides his print in Verde I am loving Tapete in turquoise. My new obsession is turqoise and tangerine...trying to convince the husband that's how we should decorate the new living room.

By Blogger Kizzi, at 6/03/2008 6:08 AM  

I love the La Fonda del Sol
Mandarina and the La Fonda del Sol
Azul and also the La Fonda del Sol
Pequeno, actually I like them all but those three are my favourites, I love the colors and designs Alexander Girard uses to create his rugs. Thanks ModMom.

By Blogger melonkelli, at 6/03/2008 6:20 AM  

oh the girard is wonderful! would look amazing in our playroom! other prints i love are the old evidently phased out kid's room prints - i am sad i missed my chance to get me a big Happy Landings rug, but i've ordered some jig's up samples to see if those will work in the nursery.

By Blogger julie beth, at 6/03/2008 6:23 AM  

I love everytnhing about these rugs. The colors, the designs, the quality.My living room would really take on a whole new look with this fabulous rug.

By OpenID traymona, at 6/03/2008 6:41 AM  

Alexander Girard's designs are so chic and retro, yet modern at the same time. My favorite Flor print would have to be the Disney Cars.

By Blogger jenna, at 6/03/2008 6:43 AM  

How could you not smile and be happy seeing a Girard design? They're bright and cheery; great for kid's rooms or mom's office!

My favorite design in the whole entire universe is the La Fonda Del Sol-Pequeno.

I ADORE Organic Overlay and Willow (in magenta, of course). They include a gorgeous array of color and imagination, & they would really do my boring room a world of good. So cute.

By Anonymous Zoe Lindberg, at 6/03/2008 7:04 AM  

The greatest part about all of the carpet tiles is if you get a stain you can just replace one little tile and not the WHOLE rug, I love that most of all!!!!!

Girard's collections are bold and beautiful: I love La Fonda del Sol "Azul", I think these designs are to good to be on the floor and would look awesome on a wall.... the Azul would be a perfect fit for our bedroom wall!

My favourites at FLOR are The Jigs Up because they can be used in a child's room and still look elegant, and the Square Dance collection because you can have them form circles and then change it around to make a windmill design.. great for people like me who love to rearrange a lot!!

Eco friendly is the way to go these days, everybody seems to be getting involved in one way or another and that is great to see everyone doing there part, whether big or small!

By Blogger MANDUH, at 6/03/2008 7:42 AM  

I love the FLOR genre! Thanks mod*mom for introducing me to it!!! My favorite in the del sol collection is the Azul! I would LOve to add this to my home!! :)

By Blogger Mona, at 6/03/2008 7:44 AM  

I'm so inspired by Alexander Girard...his designs are beautifully simplistic, yet colorful enough to spice up any boring room. God I sound like I'm trying to sell YOU his designs!

By Blogger Love Las Muertas, at 6/03/2008 7:58 AM  

I LOVE LOVE LOVE these rugs, and I would be so happy to own one. We just bought a house and are starting to buy some things, these rugs would be a fantastic addition.

The hopscotch is my fav!

I like the blue Botanicals rug. It would look lovely in my guest room. Overall I like Girad's designs. They area really modern with interesting shapes and lines.

By Blogger fangirl, at 6/03/2008 9:01 AM  

Wow! These colors are amazing. How cool is it that they are made from recycled materials! While I love the Pequeno, the Mandarina goes better with the colors in my house.

By Anonymous ashley, at 6/03/2008 9:01 AM  

Walking on Clouds in Baby Blue Eyes (we have those in my boys' room). The new Girad design would be sooo beautiful in the boys' playroom - fun but not too "babyish".

Thanks,
Maureen (jnomaxx at hotmail dot com)

By Blogger Maureen, at 6/03/2008 9:06 AM  

I really like his bold colors and style. Also the eco-friendly aspect is great too. I like the Cream very bold yet nutural at the same time. katie_mmartin at yahoo dot com.

for the flor, i love the modern mix in blue. we're moving into a house soon and flor is perfect for the basement!

By Blogger rosie, at 6/03/2008 9:51 AM  

Alexander Girard crosses mod with metro, and makes it work beautifully. The Multiform Pen from Acme Studio is simple, chic elegance.

Pequeno pattern.

Thank you for the chance to win!

By Blogger arbrashears, at 6/03/2008 11:10 AM  

I think my favorite is Tonal Vision cause it would match nicely in my home, but my kids would love the hopscotch and the Souk Chic is so fab! Oh, it's hard to decide.

This is a wonderful giveaway.

I got my FLOR catalogue yesterday and was drooling over the new designs. They are fantastic! I love all the FLOR designs... I can never pick a favorite. They are all so fun. I think it would be fun to get the Fedora tiles and make custom stripes out of them... there's a how-to on the last page of the catalogue. AMAZING!!

Ocean Think n'thin, I am in the process of pulling up my son's carpet, there is hardwood underneath but this would look great in the middle of his room. He's thirteen and I think this print would be perfect.

By Blogger john, at 6/03/2008 12:09 PM  

I really like his designs. The "Pequeno" is my favorite of his collection, but I really love the "Morning Coffee" rug. I'd love to win. Thanks for the chance.

I have to say, I was soooo impressed when you first posted this. The girard designs were not even on the FLOR website yet! You are so ahead:) I love FLOR! These new designs are gorgeous! I just got the catalog yesterday with the girard design featured, and would love to add it to our new house! janasterling@gmail.com

By Blogger danosor, at 6/03/2008 1:49 PM  

Awe Girard~ *swoon*
His designs are the epitomy of retro modernism that just have that timeless "cool" factor you can't help but love. His use of color is unlike any other textile designer and it just makes you feel so happy when you see them! I love that he hooked up w/ FLOR! Even if I don't win, I'm now going to have to scrounge up extra $$ to get some of those tiles! Aside from his collection, I dig FLOR's patterns. Willow is pretty eye-catching ^-^

Amazing lace IS amazing, and absolutely gorgeous. I do love the idea of eco-friendly rugs, because so many are made with terrible chemicals or the process is highly polluting.

By Blogger Rattlesnakechili, at 6/03/2008 2:59 PM  

I am so excited to see this giveaway because I love the fun colors and patterns the designs have. They are so unique but very attractive, I don't own anything as cool as these designs.

I also love the Disney
Classic Pooh designs.

Alexander Girard is dear to me because his frequent use of suns in his designs. With a name like Dawn, I am a big fan of anything with suns and celestial designs. I also love the Organic Overlay patterns from Flor.

Out of the other FLOR designs I like the Tapete in turquoise.

I've been waiting for what seems like forever for the Girard FLOR tiles to be released, how fun! I'm lucky enough to own Alexander Girard alphabet pillows, which I absolutely adore. His Vitra wooden dolls always catch my eye with their curious and whimsical shapes, colors, and expressions. We've actually been seriously considering getting FLOR tiles for our family room and I've had my eye on the Stampede pattern in grey or brown.

I love the warm/tangerine color way of the Girard Flor carpet tiles. I have a short wall in my family room and I think the 6x6 would look great as wall art!

By Blogger rubyredsquirt, at 6/06/2008 1:37 PM  

Alexander Girard's designs are so fantastic. They remind me of innocence, joy, summertime, and totally appeal to my sense of whimsy. To have FLOR tiles with these designs is like a marriage in heaven. I never had a favorite FLOR line, I always thought of them as purely functional, but now, my favorite are the Girard designs. They would look fantastic in my baby's nursery which we did in orange and pink. Once she is born, I want her to grow up surrounded by joyful things.

By Anonymous Wendy, at 6/06/2008 1:41 PM  

I think his design's are very trendy and cool. My favorite print of his carpets is Twiggy. I suspect his designs may have been inspired by the era when Twiggy was popular.

I think Alexander Girard's are so cheerful and lively and will brighten any room up even on the gloomiest of days. Every room needs a focal point, and splashes of color and Alexander Girard's 6-tile rugs are perfect for those prominent places you want to accentuate! I love the colors in his patterns and the hues of the colors. They are not overly bright and over bearing, they are just the right intensity. They make me happy and smile when I look at the designs. I would most definitely place these in a room I spend the most amount of time in because then I would be happy all the time in my home! My favorite FLOR eco-friendly carpet prints are the La Fonda del Sol Azul, ORGANIC OVERLAY™, WILLOW™, and TWIGGY™. They are all fabulous so it was hard to narrow it down to just a few! Thanks for offering this very fab giveaway!

I am so excited about the Girard FLOR titles.... these are by far my favorite development in the FLOR line. My wife and I made a special trip to San Francisco to see the Girard exhibit there, and our house is dotted with Girard suns and patterns. It's a real shame more of his work isn't licensed for use.

By Blogger abeaudet, at 6/10/2008 4:46 AM  

what fun! From the FLOR tiles, my favorite is the "Martha Stewart Between the Lines" --- She knows about Lines --- waiting in them at the chowroom, reflecting on the line shadows on the floor of her cell --- anyway, they remind me of being a kid at my grandparents kitchen in dublin ohio! great for bobby jr to crawl inside and outside the line, and learn to cross the line when necessary. Thanks again mod*mom ! !
