The beauty of carpets & flooring
|We love how beautiful luxury vinyl-plank flooring has become. We design a lot of beach and pool houses, and this material withstands water, kids and pets. The advancements in design and texture now make it suitable for high-end homes.

|Wood-look porcelain tile is versatile, durable and good-looking. It can mimic wood flooring or be added as an accent to a larger-scale porcelain design to create a diamond effect. We often install under-floor heating that expands ease of use.

|I cannot get enough of painted floors. They are a great way to create a super-customizable look with high impact.

|Natural jute is a beautiful option for area rugs and wall-to-wall carpet—eco-friendly, easy to clean and durable even in high-traffic areas. When using it as an area rug or runner, consider adding a wide leather border to give it a tailored, high-end look.

|We recently renovated an Alexandria condo. Our client was drawn to the warmth of clear, French white-oak flooring by the Austrian company Mafi as a backdrop for an ultra-modern kitchen. A chemical-free, natural, oiled wood floor acts as a sponge to draw impurities out of the air.
