The search is never ending for that perfect rug. The size, shape, color, design, especially the price – all these factors go into, what is typically, a focal point of a room. Now that detail can be an explosion of personality and comfort in your home. The FoFloor rugs from Bungalow Flooring are the coolest new way to soften hard floors and create depth.

These rugs have been selling – pardon the cliché – but like hot cakes. And it’s not hard to see why.bungalow-4

These lively floor mats are made with woven polyester faces that capture near photo-realistic images and graphics, adding a distinguishable element of depth to any space. With a wide selection of a variety of images and sizes, you are sure to find something to bring out your personal style.

The image quality is what really makes these mats stand out. With a choice of anything from tile mosaics and cozy cabin wood, to stone walkways and graffiti walls – the choices are endless.

These rugs are built to last too. They’re manufactured from 4-mil neoprene, which offers low profile construction that also creates comfort when standing on hard surfaces. These mats are designed to eliminate bunching under doors, tripping hazards and the skid resistant backing will not curl or crack. These one-of-a-kind rugs stay in place on hard surfaces like wood, concrete or tile – although they are just at home atop carpeting in your living room or bedrooms.

Each pattern comes in at least three sizes, including: area ( 66 X 46 inches), runner (60 X 25 inches) and large (36 X 23 inches.)

If you love color, the Big Bloom is perfect for you. This vibrant, floral rug is the spitting image of a full garden bouquet. Pink and yellow daises as well as mums sit together to create a striking image, perfect for the bathroom, bedroom or craft space.

If you have more of a classic style, either the Cottage print or Herringstone Path will blend in seamlessly with your décor. The cozy log cabin print of the Cottage rug is the perfect addition to any cabin, vacation home or just any décor of those who would rather be up-north.  The stone path print offers the same classic, charming characteristic.

Crafters will love the Basket Weave print. This rug features an up close image of a standard bamboo basket weave. The large print is sure to pop out alongside any home décor.

And for those who dream of the beach, the Nautical print is ideal. An up close image of starfish and seashells on a clean, sandy beach adds the calming effect of lounging at your favorite water-side spot. Highlight nautical themes in the bathroom, master bedroom and more.

Add style, comfort and what is sure to be a conversation starter to any area of your home with one of these fabulous photo-realistic rugs.

Celebrating all things made in America

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

In the United States, a lot of holidays hold significant meaning for different people. We all incorporate our own family traditions to create a personal memory. But there are a select few days that — despite whatever labels you choose to adorn yourself with — produce the same shinning pride and gratitude within all of us.fireworks

Independence Day, July 4th, the Fourth of July – this day is one, small 24-hour time period to admire and cherish this beautiful land we call home.

With that pride comes a desire to produce and consume items with the sought after “Made in America” label. This year, as we gather to celebrate our independence, let’s show our gratitude for the hardworking men and women who continue the tradition of quality American craftsmanship.

Stacks and Stacks is proud to offer a variety of products made in the USA. Here are a few notable ones:

Sterilite

Sterilite products have helped simplify and organize our lives for more than 75 years. Manufactured in the U.S., their storage solutions are found in homes, schools and offices. You may even be surprised to find out how many of their products are already in your home.

steriliteOne of their most common products is the Plastic Storage Basket. This basket, complete with handles and ventilation holes, is available in three different sizes. This storage piece is perfect for putting away kid’s toys, stashing cleaning products under the sink, transporting small items throughout the home and more.  Anything you can think of, this handy little basket can handle it.

While Sterilite is great for the classic storage pieces we love, they are always creating new items as well. A newer piece from them is the Stackable Containers. Made from durable clear plastic, this container is made from two interlocking bins with a top lid. Side latches keep the two containers and lid securely together. Perfect for craft items, small tools, school or art supplies and more, this portable organizer is ideal for the home or office – or traveling between the two.

Buddeez

Another American made brand that is quite popular on our site is Buddeez – their entire product line is manufactured here in the states. Buddeez made their debut on the market with their keep-fresh Bread Dispenser. This handy item remains the only bread dispenser on the market. Designed to store an entire loaf of sandwich bread in the bag, this tube-like container allows you to easily access every slice.buddeez

Buddeez is also known for their Bag-In Dispenser for Bulk Foods. This food-safe plastic container is designed to store and dispense bagged bulk items – like sugar, rice, cereal and more – right in the bag. The side handle and top flip-open lid both make pouring easy.

This piece is a popular one, and the reviews prove it: “I use these containers to store cereal. It helps dry cereal from going stale in the box. The containers fit nicely in my cupboard. I highly recommend them. They’d also be great for rice!”

This year, celebrate our great country by supporting local manufacturers.
