  1. What a great giveaway on a GREAT (my fave) blog! I’ve been liking Flor for some time, so this should be easier, but my faves are: Suit yourself (in raffia), easy chair, house pet, sweater weather, twill ride, and a little of this.

  2. I’m a big fan of Flor tiles! I really like Askania, Making Waves and Rake Me Over! I appreciate their sample program, it’s great to be able to see and feel a large chunk of tile before placing an order. Great company!

  3. I love Dashed Off, Hither and Yon and Roadside Attraction. Flor tiles are great for renters, I’ve moved multiple times since buying a set and have installed them in a variety of configurations to suit different apartments.

  4. What a beautiful collection! Thank you for introducing me to FLOR tiles. I can’t help but love the Lanyard collection….would be perfect to complete our little home!

  5. AGHH! I LOVE FLOR TILES! I get their magazines and the tiles are divine!!

    My favorites: Made You Look, Lasting Greatness, and Roadside Attraction! GORGEOUS!

  6. I have been in love with FLOR tiles for a long time. My favorite tiles are Lasting Grateness. I love their graphic quality.

  7. I LOVE the Roadside Attraction. I want to lay on it with a cup of tea and blanket. I would get it in Dew for my bedroom.

  8. I just moved to a new home and can’t wait to add flor to warm up the office. I’m feelin’ the stripes section and leaning toward mod macrame.

  9. I LOVE FLOR!!!! and this year they have so many amazing new designs … my favorite is mod cow !!! its timeless

  10. Love the new REORIENTED tiles. We have the felted ones in our living room and love them. We are outfitting a baby room currently so this would definitely help! (Due in May!)

  11. I already have some Take a Ribbing in my entryway, but I was looking at purchasing Manx for my dining room. I love Flor because I can always retrofit them to new spaces when I move!

  12. Yeah! Cool Giveaway! I love flor tiles, and my most recent crush is on the herringbone pattern featured in the Roadside Attraction tile. I think it would look great under my dining room table :)

  13. Flor tiles FANTASTIC!
    Reoriented – chartreuse or pepper
    Roadside Attraction – tan, haze or eggnog
    Ups and Downs – grey
    Lasting Grateness – black
    Hide and Batik – grey

    YES THEY ARE FANTASTIC!
    Couldn’t access Flor Facebook Page….but PLEASE submit my name for the giveaway!
    I would not want to MISS the opportunity to perhaps WIN these tiles!

  14. My husband and I have been looking at these for our basement for a while now, we’re refinishing it (AGAIN) after our 2nd rainwater flood backup. Part of the appeal of going with Flor has been if we have another flood we aren’t ripping up flooring/carpet, and can just pick up the tiles.

    Our front runners so far have been “A LIttle of This” in Taupe, “Rake me Over” in a few colors and Point of View/Mind Map.

  15. FLOR… THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX, ONE SQUARE AT A TIME!
    Modular floor decor is so mid-century sensible and adaptable. I would choose a few juut rug entry hall runner squares, and then when the dog brings in mud I can clean it easily.
    Thank you! Yvonne :)

  16. I really like the Shadow Play tiles in purple and the Point of View ones in Titanium. They would look great in my living room!

  17. I’m really digging sweater weather. It would cozy up my dining room, but I think it has more to do with the frost on the houses this morning.

  18. I’ve been coveting Lasting Grateness in Black/White for quite a while now after seeing it on Pinterest at some point! Would love the opportunity to try it out!

  19. These are gorgeos, affordable and creative. I’ve seen them in a couple of friends’ homes. They’re not just a solution, they’re a desire. I never knew how versatile and accommmodating they can be for different areas. Here are SOME of my favorites:
    1. Easy Chair (worn tapestry rug)
    2. Just Plain Folk (cableknit sweater)
    3. Remembrance (sepiatoned photo)
    4. Suit Yourself (seagrass)

  20. I need Rake Me Over in BUTTER. Just swapped my dinning room and living room and need this for the cozy sofa nook I now have right next to my kitchen. LOVE the new FLOR store that opened in Portland, Oregon recently!

  21. I would have a hard time choosing! I’m having a baby soon and I love the Wave tiles as well as the green Rake me over tiles. So great!

  22. I love the idea of flor tiles and how versatile they are- so many great designs it’s hard to pick a favorite but I’m definitely a fan of remembrance and waxing poetic for a modern twist.

  23. Husband and I are big fans of Flor, but haven’t been able to afford a big enough size to make an impact! If I were to win, I would snatch up the grey “sweater weather” tiles. Love the texture!

  24. Ok, “Dashed Off” in Jailbird is pretty rad! I’m thinking this is the way to go since I just threw out our area rug after we got both sides dirty (kitty). Can only flip that and start over again once!

  25. Oh my goodness! This would be perfect for my (very bare) living room floor for the chilly months coming ahead. It would make for a great wedding gift to me ;)

    Love HAZE (color) Roadside Attraction!
    Liked on FB and already a follower on your twitter.

    THANKS! mandy@littlemaison.com

  26. These are so cool and I’m in desperate need of a new living room rug. Mine has a horrible case of cat + toddler + dust disease. :) I would LOVE to have Parallel Reality (pink) or Hey Jack.

  27. A neutral shade would be great for my parents’ living room. They recently had to rip out their carpet due to my puppy’s “accidents,” so this would be a great way for me to make it up to them! Perhaps “Reverb” in oatmeal or “Roadside Attraction” in haze. Thanks for the great contest!

  28. Love the sweater weather tiles, both the grey and the brown. How many cable knit sweaters do I own….never enough lol!!

  29. I’m THIS close to ordering a FLOR rug for our nursery and have it narrowed down to a couple styles. I love Roadside Attraction and Sweater Weather.

  30. The front row carpet squares are just what we are looking for. Love them all so much though!!
    @daniellelight

  31. I love “Look Both Ways” in tan! It would look great on my dark hardwood floors in my living room in my little Venice Beach bungalow!

  32. Aw. Just Canada and the U.S. :-( We have Flor tiles here in the Netherlands, but just plain and boring, none with patterns at all – so unfortunate. If we could find these gorgeous Flor tiles here, I would have them in pretty much every of my house, starting with Waxing Poetic in our bedroom….:-)

  33. So many new textures and patterns! I love the Hither & Yon, Suit Yourself and Front Row. I have wood floors, so some Flor tiles would definitely help warm things up with winter on the way!

  34. I have been having the hardest time finding a rug with turquoise in it. When I saw you post I hopped right on over to Flor and was delighted! There are so many options for the ongoing decoration of my family room and I’m seriously considering “Good Vibrations” in turquoise.

  35. I love “Hey Jack” and “Parallel reality”, I was looking the opportunity to buy a complete rug for my apartment, maybe this is the time!
    Thank you

  36. Currently looking for a new rug for our livingroom so this post could not have been more perfect! Great solution! I like Mind Map, Look Both Ways, and Twill Ride; my favorite has be to Full Knit!

  37. There are so great many ones to choose from! Since, I am living in all black and white at the moment, I am thinking I would love Mod Cow or Dashed Off.

  38. I love the Craft Work – Arrowhead and Sweater Weather tiles. It’s hard to decide which, but I think the sweater tiles would be better for long term use. We’re getting ready to open a retail space and would love to have these in the front room of the shop. Would be so lovely!

  39. GREAT giveaway! I just moved and the old rug isn’t cutting it in the new shiny space. Hard to choose, but I love both “Lasting Greatness” & “Weave a Story,” for different spaces. Thank you!

  40. I’m a huge FLOR fan! I would love the Rememberance and Full Kilt tiles for my new house… maybe for the baby’s room or maybe something daring in my new bright turquoise family room!

  41. How perfect the timing of this giveaway is! Our living room rug is shot and Flor tiles would be perfect to replace it. My favorite is Easy Chair in burnt ember.

  42. I love the Mod Cow as a fun way to modern up my dining room (its starting to look a little too french provincial.)

  43. Love ’em! Tough to choose but I think Mod Cow would be great in my teeny-tiny New York apartment – such a fun way to transform a space!

  44. My favorite is REORIENTED. In Grey or Pepper. I like the colored versions too but I can’t commit to that much color in my decor. :D

  45. “Easy Chair” is my favorite! I live in an 1887 Victorian home and this design would fit perfectly in my parlor. I love the rich burgundy color and random pattern. Would look great with my stained-glass windows and oak woodwork.

  46. We are big fans of FLOR tiles, and have been eyeing them for a while. I love their Ups and Downs tile in Red for our son’s room, he loves color and pattern and its just the perfect tile for him. For ourselves we would get the sweater tile for the living room, its just perfect for the Canadian winter :) Liked the facebook page, and installed the app, going all the way!

  47. FLOR tiles! How do I love thee? Let me count the ways:

    Easy on the eyes
    Easy on the planet
    Easy on the feet…

    What I wouldn’t give for some of those felted oatmeal squares for our dining room. Sounds super tasty.

  48. I love FLOR! I have been dreaming about ripping up the nasty carpet in our dining room and replacing it with these great tiles! My favorite (right now) is sweater weather. With kids and dogs, FLOR seems like such a smart option. My dream would be a polished concrete floor with a FLOR area rug.

  49. I am sprucing up my (rented) illustration studio here in SF and I’ve been looking for something sturdy and cozy that can warm up my hardwood floors and stand up to a lot of creative traffic. I love Suit Yourself in Raffia and Twill Ride in Chocolate/Pecan–either would work beautifully with my salvaged wood doors and shelving.
    I’m so glad I’ve heard about Flor now!

  50. how in the world could you ever choose!? blanketed, easy chair, roadside attraction? i really hope this is a decision i have to make. thanks for the chance victoria!

  51. I have Flor in every room of my house, with a toddler, a dog, and a cat I can’t imagine anything more practical and pretty. We are moving into our first house and therefore need more Flor since we will finally have a family room, I think remembrance would be funky and fun for the family room.

  52. Thank you so much for offering such a lovely and generous giveaway. Rake Me Over, Roadside Attraction and Sweater Weather are few of my favorites. I also ‘like’ Flor on Facebook – Cindy Aiton

  53. Im having a tough time picking (and this is so timely as I have a basement project in progress in need of this very thing!) – but I am leaning towards Roadside attraction, twill ride or Morning Coffee. @rgreayer

  54. I love Flor, but our new puppy has done a number on some of the edges of the squares–however, when we removed them it was quite clear she wasn’t happy–the Flor keeps her from slipping on the tile and provides her with her favorite spot to lie down– therefore I would get something fabulous in House Pet for Lucy– easy to clean and (almost) as tough as she is.

  55. Thank you for doing this giveaway. We have several places in the house that could use FLOR tiles! The MANX tiles are particularly spectacular. As are the Rake Me Over tiles!

  56. I really like family tree and the full kilt tiles.
    I love that they can stand up in high traffic areas, bring the area texture and color!
    thanks for the give away!
    Frances

    ps i liked flor on facebook

  57. Hi – love “Fedora Button”, “Sweater Weather”, “Suit Yourself”, “Roadside Attraction”, “Mod Cow”, and “Remembrance”. That was a hard decision – love so many of the patterns!

  58. Dashed off & cheviot are very different but my favourite! The former would add a striking geometric pop to my mauve bedroom but the latter would look great under my desk! Ohhhh the choices. Twitter @onthecl

  59. I love Flor! My favorites are Roadside Attraction, Weave a Story and Settle Down. Beautiful textiles. Would be a great addition to my living room.

  60. I have so many favorites… my living room has a rug that includes Feelin’ Groovy, House Pet, Mild Mannered and Toy Poodle! Sure could use these additional FLOR tiles to help complete the look.

  61. Checking out the new FLOR designs on their site….45 minutes later and I still haven’t decided. We want a graphic pattern to add visual interest to our new apartment with hardwood floors. I’m in love with Interlaced and Heirloom and Reoriented. And I haven’t even gotten to colors. Wait, and Pretty Promise. I’ll have to get back to you…

  62. Love Manx and Two of Hue!! Need Flor for my back hall, which is definitely screaming, “Help we have dogs!!”

  63. I also liked them on FB. Maybe they’ll have a good deal when we move into our new home in the summer! (you can reach me @redheadrambling, as well)

  64. I was eyeing the Sophisikat tile for a while but I think I may have waited too long on that one . . . guess I’ll have to find a new one to covet. . . Cheers – CT

  65. Thanks for this giveaway! I “liked” them on FB! So many favorites, but I’m digging the “shadow play” for our playroom formerly known as my office. :)

  66. Great giveaway! We just had our living room remodeled and I think that the Crossroads tiles would look great in the new space!

  67. It’s a tough call, but I’d have to say Sweater Weather or Front Row. We have a 60’s rancher which is vintage and aching to have it’s wall-to-wall carpeting ripped up and replaced w/wood floors and carpet tiles!

  68. I love the mod cow. It’d be a risk to buy it but if I won it, it’d be so fun to have it and use it in the new house.

  69. I love Reoriented in grey, and I also love Interlaced. It would be very tempting, though, to go a little more bold and get the Mod Cow. What a great concept!

  70. I like the point of view texture tiles best, but I’d like them better in some other colors. The solids in lots of colors are my pick.

  71. Oh, I love Flor! I have a bit in my living room already but would love to do my bedroom in Shear Indulgence in the Essex blue color…looks amazing and comfy!

  72. I love the ALL DOLLED UP
    It is so pretty and would be perfect for my bed room..
