Now that’s not a very chic blog post title for a design blog.
But honestly isn’t that pretty much the reality for today’s lifestyle? Whether we have kids, pets, guests or not, a designed space needs to withstand life. When I started out designing I used to be that horrible kind of designer who would put pale silk chairs that you really could not sit in, in the living room. Fast forward a few years and I’m WAY more sensible….(if any of my first clients read this I know you are laughing)
One of the reasons I wanted to design my own products was to create items that were chic and high on style, yet you can “get down and dirty with them” in lack of a more eloquent description.
The cotton rugs we make are reversible and completely easy to clean. And that’s a fact!!! This past Christmas I had put down our cream Monogram carpet in our TV room in Sweden. My mom had just served Glogg (hot red wine drink with sugar). Before I even take a sip from my filled cup, my nephew chases something and runs right in to me. The Glogg goes flying ALL OVER THE CREAM CARPET!!!
Everyone was horrified! But we simply did what the instructions say (minus the Woolite). We dabbed/rubbed it with some moist towels. And to my complete DELIGHT (and honestly surprise) not a single spot was left!! And it was red wine on a white carpet.
Mission accomplished. This is a carpet that works for the modern household!
Therefore I feel the need to share this. No more worrying about kids spilling or pets bringing in messes. And on top of it, you can REVERSE the carpet and use the other side. I really need to make some videos about this.
I use a ton of them for private design clients. Can’t wait to add more designs and colorways.
This Mark Road Trip ($ 525) design was the first one. The colorway above is called Road Trip because it resembles the colors on the road.
And who can resist a road trip?
Yellow lines on asphalt. And nothing can withstand more than that…
It’s a 100% cotton weave. It’s sturdy yet really soft so kids can comfortably play on the floor.
The MARK-Poseidon $ 525
This colorway is a dark charcoal with a beautiful dark ocean aqua so we adequately named is Poseidon..
Like a dark beautiful ocean that conquers all. Yes… have to give everything fun names.
Stay tuned…in the next few weeks we are giving away a MARK carpet.
In the meantime don’t miss out on the www.houseofturquoise.com bedding giveaway going on until Friday.
