7 Stylish Flooring Picks for Spring

Statement-making rugs and tiles that prove bold is beautiful (even underfoot).

Things get creative underfoot with bold patterns, singular shapes, solid sweeps and swaths of colour that make a canvas-like statement on the floor.


1. Painterly Palette

A vibrant mix of greens and blues, the Da Vinci rug ($600) could almost be the brush strokes and dabs of a Renaissance master. inspirationfurniture.ca


2. Heart Attack

Corazón means “heart” in Spanish, making this Dellarobbia rug ($3,832) a funky, pop-art version of Latin heat—and a love letter to the floor. gingerjarfurniture.com


3. Bird’s Eye

Make like a sky-high bird and float on the tufted topographical landscape of Robin by Ligne Roset ($2,059). It’s a flight of floor fancy. livingspace.com


4. Marble Works

Like the coveted marble once used by Michelangelo, Calacatta Borgo slabs by Antolini ($29 per square foot) have a certain posh polish, but this bold-veined pattern is actually printed on low-maintenance porcelain. aeonstonetile.com


5. Modern Love

This hand-knotted 100 percent silk rug ($7,500) is like a piece of abstract art in a contemporary gallery—the only thing missing is the frame. pacificruggallery.com


6. Paleo Design

Dino from BoConcept ($1,039) is a subtly organic yet boldly free-form rug that feels like both prehistoric artifact and avant-garde discovery at the same time. boconcept.com



Designer’s Pick by Andrea McLean

Brick is such a natural and warm material. It has an inherent texture that feels authentic underfoot. And the way it’s laid can provide additional interest, like in a herringbone pattern. The brick style can be rustic, contrasted with a minimal interior/exterior, or it can be level and uniform with subtle movement, like the flooring in Philip Johnson’s Glass House in Connecticut.
