The Check It Out carpet tile collection from FLOR, with its fashion-favorite checkerboard print, follows the brand’s journey to sustainability is woven into everything it does, including the Check It Out rug styles drawing the eye to every inch of the room, connecting furniture pieces to wall décor and everything in between.
For its sustainable design, the Check It Out collection has recently been awarded a 2023 Green Good Design Award by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies.
It is no secret that this pattern can transform an everyday space into a chic scene with its textured elegance and vibrant colorways, available in shades of Pearl, Emerald, Black, Marigold, and Stone.
Check It Out is an outside-the-box, modernized rug style that will make you do just that – check it out.
Over the years, the company has continued its commitment to lower its carbon footprint through responsibly sourced materials, manufacturing powered by renewable energy, and carbon-negative rug backing technology.
Notably, Check It Out is a carbon-neutral area rug and an environmentally responsible choice.
Check It Out is made from thoughtfully sourced materials, making it an environmentally responsible choice.
Each carpet tile incorporates Aquafil’s ECONYL® regenerated nylon, which the brand has featured in its rugs for more than 10 years.
This sought-after responsible solution for well-known fashion and interior brands is made from 100% waste – fishing nets, textile scraps, old carpets, and more – that would otherwise pollute the Earth.
The area rug style includes the manufacturer’s CQuest™GB backing.
Guided by materials science and inspired by nature’s carbon-storing abilities, the company added new bio-based materials and more recycled content to its backings.
Then, it measured how these materials influence carbon footprint.
These new materials, measured on a stand-alone basis, are net carbon negative – resulting in carbon-negative backings.
Continuing to prioritize sustainability, FLOR’s Return and Recycle Program takes old carpet tiles and regenerates them into new ones at its Georgia facilities, preventing landfill pile-up and recycling over 74,180 carpet tiles in 2021.
Environmental responsibility is something that FLOR customers continue to consider in their purchasing decisions.
Coupled with the National Retail Federation finding that 57% of consumers are willing to change their purchasing behavior to help reduce their environmental impact, it is evident that sustainable products are not just a trend.
As a pioneer in sustainability and design, FLOR offers smart, responsible and beautiful designs to help consumers create a healthy space that matches their personality.
