Seagrass Flooring

Seagrass flooring is a favorite of mine, and I'll be using it on an upcoming project that I'm so excited to share with you guys! I'll keep this short and sweet, though. Seagrass is amazing because:

a. it's resilient, durable, and resistant to soiling due to it's waxy finish
b. under typical wear-and-tear for residential design, seagrass wears well for 10-15 years
c. it's less expensive than sisal 
d. the environmental impact of seagrass flooring production is minimal
e. it's a neutral palette and is flat enough to layer colorful rugs over it if needed
f. it's beeeeee-autiful

Some of my favorite applications:

the ceiling, the floor, the nook..i could go on. i would love those chairs  & ottoman in a bold, graphic pattern.

A quote that inspired me to have a different perspective today:

"Because in the end, you won't remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing the lawn. Climb that damn mountain." -Jack Kerouac
