LA Good Questions: Do FLOR tiles shed?

Pin it button
Due to our cautionary tale of the CB Rug Shed-Off, AT:LA reader Mary sent us this query:

Hi AT,
I'm thinking about buying some FLOR modular carpet tiles to create an 8x10 area rug. Since there have been some AT posts lately about certain rugs from Ikea, Pottery Barn, Crate & Barrel, etc. that keep on shedding for years, does anyone know if FLOR carpet tiles shed? Thanks for the help!

PS: I am considering the styles, "Rake Me Over" and "Moon"
Hi Mary,

We actually have the Rake Me Over rug in our office, and it hasn't shed in the past three months that we installed it. Not sure about the Moon version, though. Anyone have these FLOR tiles and can vouch for their shed potential? And what's your take on FLOR as a carpet/rug alternative?
