An Ancient Tradition

Our Harouian Rugs sales rep, Bob Ball, dropped by Moore Floor Coverings yesterday. He shared with us his photographs from his recent trip to Nepal, and he was lovely enough to allow us to post several images on the blog. And happy traveling...

I love this image above.The natural colors of wool appeal to me (we have wonderful un-dyed wool carpet in many textures & patterns!), but when wool fibers are hand dyed in the ancient traditions using vegetable and mineral dyes, the colors are stunning! An obvious pairing.

This Cherry Blossom in Celadon is running line in standard sizes and also comes in red. 
The light in this photo inspires.
I wonder where this custom beauty is scheduled to land? I can just picture the room.

It's been too long since I've posted on Moore Beautiful Floors, but we are still here and going strong. Business has picked up, and we've been collaborating with designers on custom rugs from Delos, a line new to us that we introduced this Spring. Their rugs combine the updated designs, such as bold geometric and patterns inspired by nature that also help us humans. For example the collection, Rovos, "draws it's inspiration from Africa, with its figurative Animals and Kuba Cloths. Five percent of this collection's proceeds are contributed to the World Global Fund to fight three of the world's most devastating diseases: AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria." The company is easy to work with to boot- like Mike and I- very service oriented.

Plus, we have the newest collections from Nourison. The samples finally arrived last week. We love both the Manhattan Collection and the Miami Collection (pictured above), which offers an amazing bang for the buck, especially here at Moore Floor Coverings if you're a designer.
We hope to see you all soon!
