 Rugs 101 - Using Beautiful Sustainable Rugs

dayle on rug 150DVD for educational and professional development

What makes an area rug ‘green’ or sustainable? You are replacing floors with wood, stone or ceramic and have discovered that the space looks bare, cold and sounds reverberate. Should you make a fashion statement or make a long-term investment? Rugs can be a significant factor in the design budget.

You want straightforward unbiased background information on the “101’s” of rugs! Learning about the criteria for selecting 'green', about fibres, construction, dyeing and rug care are important for your investment. You want advice that goes beyond the simplicity of “vacuum regularly”.
Dayle Laing shares her 22 years of professional design practice, her 19 years of teaching interior design at college, and her passion and research for the ‘green’ sustainable side of design in this exciting DVD. This 49 minute audio/visual has been produced from her February 2009 live seminar to design professionals at The Rug Department, in Vaughan, Canada. Here is a 2 minute sample of the type of information you will learn.



Fabulous – like an entire college course in one evening! Dayle is clear, organized, and an ‘excellent presenter’. I appreciate the fact that she is committed to educating design professionals about the best green practices in a time effective and enjoyable way.”
