FloorDaily.net reports that Portland International Airport (PDX) is replacing its current carpet, which has, over its 30 years, achieved an iconic status in pop culture, and a portion of the removed carpet will be upcycled into souvenir items.

Thirty-two groups submitted ideas for repurposing the carpet, and four were chosen to receive 1,000 square yard sections: City Liquidators, Carpet Mill Outlet, The PDX Project and MyPDXCARPET.com.

It has become common practice for travelers passing through PDX to take pictures of themselves on the PDX carpet and post these to social media. In fact, the PDX carpet Instagram page has garnered over 18,000 followers and its Facebook page has over 12,000 likes. In PDX shops and on pdxcarpet.com, consumers can purchase goods carrying replications of the PDX carpet design.

The PDX carpet has received nationwide news coverage with articles in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and LA Times.

For 2015, the hot colors in home decor range from yummy ice cream pastels to a few deep, saturated hues. The pastels include blush, sky blue, vanilla, lilac and pale peach, hues traditionally associated with tropical or desert climes. But they work in northern light, too — just ground them with darker shades like charcoal, chocolate or navy.
