July zoomed by for me. Good thing I had that beach campout otherwise it would have totally missed me. Still, lots happened in July at The Carpetology Blog, which gives me an excuse to do The Carpetology Blog Roundup for July, 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 the month of July, here's what happened:
On the red carpet front, we had a story that connected directly with the industry: Red Carpet Event: Karastan & Joyful Heart Foundation. Please, if you know anyone who has lived through sexual assault, domestic violence or child abuse, direct them to The Joyful Heart Foundation.For those of you wanting desperately to Be a Red Carpet Reporter!, did you make the deadline?
Carpet is an important element of World Culture... Can you imagine how big the world's largest carpet would have to be? I couldn't until I read In Search of the World's Largest Carpet... Then, there's Yellow Around The World and Biomimicry And The Art of Nature. Were you aware that a major carpet event is coming up in August? It has to do with the Tapis de fleurs de Bruxelles [and I'm hoping that Solutia associates in Louvain-La-Neuve will be successful in sharing their perspectives with us. This is a BIG deal in Bruxelles.]. We also offered an historical carpet perspective For July 4th: The History of the World (in terms of carpet).
We added to the Carpetology Wear-Dated Website Guide with information on Subscribing to the Newsroom.
After spending time with Flooring America's Etienne Koth discussing and exploring carpet styles, I decided to get up-close-and-personal with several of them in Flooring America Carpet Styles to Consider - Part I and Part II. [Thank you, Etienne!]
Finally, three more episodes from our web series:
+ A Foot's Perspective - Episode 9 from NeoCon and the Chicago Merchandise Mart. Ann Hurley discusses the concept of 'contrast' with four carpet introductions from our Ultron showroom.
+ A Foot's Perspective - Episode 8 also from Chicago. It offers a quick glimpse of the flooring in the Sears Tower. Well, from one room in the Sears Tower.
+ A Foot's Perspective - Episode 7 is from my gym...
