Patchwork kitchen floor made from Marmoleum ends - Cory Doctorow @ BoingBoing

Cory Doctorow writes this brief post on Vermont Eco Builder's effort to layout a kitchen floor made from Marmoleum salvaged from a landfill. The Vermont Eco Builder's blog has a lot more information and photos to go along with their build including the process they used to create the color scheme and layout they wanted. Marmoleum is apparently an eco-friendly flooring made from organic materials.
It's a great use of recycled materials while providing an aestheically pleasing look to a kitchen floor. What's more, it's wonderful that the company installing the floor offers up their technique for laying the floor, meaning others can create their own Marmoleum kitchen floor. As Doctorow says, the effect is striking in terms of color and look.
