    The floors on my house look like the floors at Nino's house, so I vote for Mr. Valenti!

  4. Hmmmm,
    The hardwood looks better, but that rug. It's got some mojo. It's got the funk in a Bootsy meets the Brady's kind of way. ;)

    Plus if I spilled beer or coffee on it, who would care? :D


    If what you mean by "had to pick one" it would go in my house. It would be the hardwood.

    This should be a poll.

    Umm.....it is. Look up!
     
  6. Thanks. it's been Long day.

    Me go vote now.
     
  7. I'm a big fan of hard wood floors. It gives a nice open feel to the room.

    That carpet's nuts though. I'd go for it.
     
  8. What about some of the others? I can't think of whose of the top of my head, but I know there are some amazing floors out there. I think I remember liking Jean's.

    My vote goes for Tom, 'cause that floor allows you to keep the funk while keeping the gunk off your bass.
     
  9. I'm diggin on the rug. Undeniable mojo. Pretty, also.

    I had to vote for Tom's carpet based on the purpose of the photos.

    ANYTHING would look good when contrasting with that carpet.

    Sometimes I like Nino's floor better than the color of the bass.:ninja:{but just the color!!!}

    If you got rid of the CDs and replaced them with vinyl records in Tom's shot, I would swear its my grandparent's old rec room...except their carpet was the same color...but shag. It was pretty cool actually. Damn 70s with their multicolor freaky psychidelic things...

    Anyway, I voted for Nino's floor.
     
  12. If it were my house, definitley going with the Greatful Dead meets Rainbow Bass rug. If I was forced to share it with the signifigant other, wood. But just to be safe, I voted carrots.

    Ever wonder if Nino really lives at the Y and the wood floor is just the basketball court? :D

    I'll have to go with Tom's magic carpet, because the carpet in my floridaroom matches it almost exactly (just far, far dirtier).
     
  14. I voted for Nino's hardwood floor because I like the look.........but then again from a functionality perspective, if I were having sex on it I'd have to go with tombowlus' rug. :D

    I'm sure if Tom ever decides to have sex with you, he'll feel reassured that you're comfortable with the surroundings.
     
  16. Haha! :D

    If I had to pick one for my house, it would be hardwood. But that carpet has something going on!

    Maybe I'd have two rooms so I could have both?

    I'd normally go with the wood floor, but that carpet is really something else. Looks like a rainbow had diarrhea. I love it.

    Floor's self titled album was their best, IMO. But they had a pretty respectable catalog all around. They are the perfect mix of grunge/doom/stoner.

    Off topic: That carpet rules.
