Standout Layers of soft felt mimic much rockier terrain.
Ask Janice Arnold about her childhood and she'll speak of the contours and textures of landscapes (having a cartographer for a father will do that). Those memories permeate her tiles, which this season flaunt the designer's natural knack for geophysics. Irregular bands of wool felt replicate stone layers, creating stylized cross sections of the furrows lurking beneath the earth's surface. Among the possibilities in this made-to-order series: blue trickling through the gray of Zebra Marble, jagged edges turning shapely with Banded Onyx in Travertine, the dusty verdure of Unakite in Moss, and the concentric swirls of Banded Agate in shades of gray, blue, and white. The wool-faced tiles—available in 12-, 18-, and 36-inch squares—are backed with a blend of wool and recycled materials. They're perfect for ceiling and wall installations, especially where sound abatement and insulation are essential. 360-273-8548; jafelt.com. circle 396
