8 Dazzling Flooring Options

1. Fernando Mastrangelo for Edward Fields

Standout: Hides of different pile densities and species (sourced only from animals slaughtered for meat) were collaged into this lively geometric, hand-dyed in eye-popping blues and greens or custom.

3. Kari Pei of Interface

Product: Progression I, II, and III

5. Verda Alexander for Obeetee

Product: Pill

Standout: The Hall of Famer mashed up two iconic patterns—diamond and lozenge—into a dynamic push/pull composition executed in New Zealand wool; 10 percent of net sales benefit DIFFA.

8. Bentley Mills

Product: Night Vision

Standout: Variegated high- and low-luster yarns in a textured tufted loop seem to shift in tone and dimension. Available in a dozen hues of cushion, hardback, or broadloom nylon carpet.
