Residing on the island of Martha's Vineyard since the mid 1980's, Cecily discovered the little known art of "Floorcloth" making in her exploration of decorative painting. A fine art background lent the skill and craftsmanship necessary to produce a high quality floorcloth of stylish design and heirloom longevity. On Martha's Vineyard you will find her exhibiting in the Vineyard Artisan's Festivals throughout the summer where she shows a variety of designs that can be customized to your interior with color and size.
Cecily"s floorcloths are made of sturdy 18 oz. canvas, layers of paint and a variety of stencils, they defy the colonial era history with a contemporary design flair. Multiple layers of marine grade poly sealant are applied to protect the surface of the rug for many years of function. The area at the kitchen sink is the obvious choice for a floorcloth, but their durable beauty makes them a great choice for powder rooms, hallways, even large scale living areas. These rugs are backed with a non-skid surface to insure they do not slide once they are in place. Their easy care has made them a delightful option for decorating as well as protecting the floor.
