COCOCOZY FOR MIRTH STUDIO - NEW PAINTED WOOD FLOOR TILES

COCOCOZY for Mirth Studio painted wood floor tiles - new flooring concept! (above)
Last week I mentioned my latest exciting new license partnership with Mirth Studio.  This week, I'll go into a bit of detail.

I am so proud to be a part of a fantastic new product release - painted wood tile floors with COCOCOZY patterns on them.

Long story short.  Via email and a blog post I met Sally Bennett, founder of Mirth Studio in Charleston, South Carolina.  Sally came up with the brilliant idea of creating engineered wood floor tiles that are digitally printed on to look like they are hand painted wood floors. Sally, an artist by trade, has dozens of wonderful colorful designs in the Mirth Studio collection. Ingenious.  Genius.  Smart.  Well the minute I heard of this concept I knew two things: 1) I had to do one of the first blog posts on these tiles (click here to see my post) and 2) I wanted to partner with Sally to license out my COCOCOZY designs for these wonderful floor tiles.

In less than a week after meeting via email, Sally and I worked out a deal.  Just this last week, Sally took her innovative product to High Point Market along with 5 of my designs!  So exciting!

Well the response was overwhelming.  Sally is the first to bring this sort of product to market so designers and potential partners went crazy over these floors.  Sally was inundated with at the trade show with lots of business prospects.  Was so happy for her and so happy to be a part of her wood floor tile launch.

Here is a glimpse of the COCOCOZY wood floor tiles on display at High Point Market and some of the varieties available.

P.S.  Woke up a little sore this morning.  Went on a 6.2 mile hike yesterday with TE.  Such an amazing walk uphill to stand almost right in front of the iconic Hollywood sign.  It was such a nice day for a long walk up a hill.  Not too sunny.  Not cold.  Just perfect.  With good company I might add.

P.P.S.  This weekend was my "I Love Lucy" weekend.  I got locked out of the COCOCOZY Headquarter offices on Saturday...I had brought my dog, Mr. Boo, over to get some paperwork done, I stepped out of the office for a minute and locked myself out!  About an hour later and $149 poorer, a nice locksmith who looked like a spy of some sort, came and helped me open the door!  Lucy  moment number 2 occurred when I was sashaying up some stairs with TE and was taking pictures of the inside of a house, when all of a sudden I lost my footing and ended up falling face down.  No injuries at all.   Just a loss of pride and dignity. Lucy moment #3.  Mr. Boo, my dog, eats $100 in $20 bills belonging to my boyfriend TE.  TE left money on the dining room table...Mr. Boo climbed on said table, stole money and ate it. Oy. Tried to make jokes about this mishap...fell on deaf ears! Ooops. That's it.

P.P.P.S.  Hope you had a nice weekend and hope you have a nice week ahead!

  2. I'm so sorry you fell! I've enjoyed reading your blogs.

    I really like the floor tiles too. How would they do in a bathroom or kitchen or with swimming pool traffic? And what is recommended to clean them to keep the shine?
