The Carpetology Blog Roundup - August 2008

August felt more like September in the Northeast. And September may feel more like summer with my daughter not starting 1st grade until September 15th [yes, an anomaly; it's due to construction on the high school which affects the school system buses...]. But, with Labor Day weekend happening as I write this, I have my excuse to be retrospective and share with you The Carpetology Blog Roundup for August, 2008!

[If you are new to Flooring The Consumer, The Carpetology Blog is the official Wear-Dated blog about all things carpet... design, inspiration, care and stories carpet-related. Please do check it out and let me know what you think... ]

Back to goings on over at The Carpetology Blog...

During August, here's what happened:

August was all about the 2008 Beijing Olympics which we covered in Carpet At The 2008 Beijing Summer Olympic Games and Olympic Carpet Recap. Amazing to witness carpet as the critical and supportive backdrop to gymnastics in particular, and as the opening ceremonies creative surface.

Two posts offered more perspective on Wear-Dated [see About Us: What Is Wear-Dated?] and the tools available on the Wear-Dated website. If you are looking for a useful tool for retail salespeople to offer carpet shoppers, suggest that they read "Before You Buy Carpet, Download This Show Me Sheet".

If fact, the "Show Me Sheet" is what Elizabeth used as she proceeded to the next step of The Carpetology Guide to Buying Carpet - Step 3: shopping.

Design, particularly in flooring, matters to consumers and carpet buyers. In Inspiration From NeoCon, Ann Hurley talks with Kim Gavin about carpet style trends. We introduce a new monthly series about design in Design Reviews From the Floor Up ~ Design*Sponge and count on Sonna Calandrino to showcase Fabulous Floors & Fabulous Carpet Styles!

Possibly the most inspiring summer carpet takes place every other year in Brussels. We capture the highlights in Brussels Flower Carpet 2008.

NOTE: starting today, you can experience a flower carpet at the Biltmore...

Carpet has been in the news with Carpet Works In Amazing Ways and Carpet For Your Tent, Carpet For Your Cubicle. And, I'm very pleased to report that our woman won [see Support Your Local Red Carpet Reporter!]. I'll have more details on that early next week.

Two new episodes of A Foot's Perspective, both taking place in Nashville, TN, site of the Summer 2008 Carpet One Floor & Home Convention. A Foot's Perspective - Episode 10 exposes you to Millennium Nouveau in Gerber Daisy pink, and A Foot's Perspective - Episode 11 talks Wear-Dated Natural Nylon.

Finally, you have something to look forward to with Fabulous Floors' Fabulous Find: Color. You'll be hearing more about that, too.

Thanks for reading.

Have a wonderful Labor Day and last August Weekend!
