La Fonda del Flor.

Girardflor

I received an email from Flor last week about the soon-to-launch Alexander Girard collection and in the commotion that was our Semiannual Sale, I forgot to post something here. (Bad.) Then I happened upon Dwell’s site today and saw the above image and I’m mightily impressed. (Good.) The La Fonda del Sol squares are picture-perfect and Dwell blogger Christopher Bright explains that "Girard wrote a letter to Herman Miller president D.J. Depree back in 1953 expressing interest in creating a modular carpet tile system.” That time has finally come for Mr. Girard.
