Flooring Day

Cruddy old original 1980's carpet being removed

Trimming edges on Chilewich Flooring

Gaucho Frame Removed (those are batteries underneath the ledge

Pulling out old carpet under dinette table
The flooring from Chilewich arrived at Flooring Innovations.  I was able to schedule the installation of the upholstery about 20 minutes after the flooring was installed.  What complicated the whole installation was that my upholsterer refused to install the sofa first, as the entire frame had to be removed (you can see it out entirely in the photo above with the two battery boxes bneneath).  the carpet was pretty gnarly, especially after 12 weeks of contractors in and out and no one cleaning the floor (though I did run the vacuum a few times to get up nails and things like that).  The flooring looks great.  You can hardly see where the seams are.  It's a woven vinyl mat with a rubber backing from Chilewich, who makes the great placemats and floor mats for homes.  This is a platinum/silver color with grey and charcoal strands in it.  It sparkles at night and reads like a neutral during the day.  It looks amazing!
