Modular carpet. Brilliant! Install it by sticking it to the floor. Remove to clean in the sink, to move apartments or to replace. This solves 2 typical carpet problems: 1) stain one part/get uneven wear and you have to replace the whole darn thing 2) if you rent, you lose the investment when you move. Plus, this whole company is seriously driven to minimize their environmental impact so it's all recyclable or compostable. $4+/ft, the price is right. More at ::Apartment Therapy :: Interface
