dayle_carl_french_speers_road_broadloom_250Understanding that "knowledge is power", key interior design industry leaders attended Dayle’s 'Rugs 101' seminar at Speers Road Broadloom on February 4, 2010.

Proclaiming the session interesting and informative, they left the evening motivated to put more ‘green’ into their designs and sales.

Savvy interior designers, interior decorators, flooring sales reps and retailers gathered in the showroom to glean the practical advice on how to answer their clients’ demands for green rugs and carpeting. Carl French of Speers Road Broadloom sponsored the training of his staff and generously funded the attendance of 4 lucky local Sheridan College design students.

Dayle Laing, a LEED® AP, related the technical aspects of carpet fibres, construction, dyeing and finishing to the applicable LEED® credits, as she deftly handled questions and gave practical advice for handling design choices and spotting ‘greenwashing’ claims. She thoroughly explained the third party certifications pertaining to the carpeting industry.

Carl told Dayle that he expects his suppliers to be well informed about flooring sustainability, so that he can continue to offer excellent service to his designers, decorators, contractors and his retail customers.
