tv stand - Where is it from?

Another option is TVCoverUps. Framed Art(including your own) or Mirror adds to the room's decor, with the hidden TV and Entertainment Consoles beneath. See how EASY it really is :

The locker tv stand is from Ikea I am fairly certain. We have it in white.

Thanks! I tend to think there are no "rules" and just go with my gut. (Professionals might say otherwise, ha ha) For this room, I have so much going on already, I thought that a larger rug might be overwhelming, plus this one was cheaper since I could buy fewer Flor tiles.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

And how could I leave out this awesome Flor tile customization? Amanda gives a full play-by-play on how the rug was made right here.
Pull out the utility knife and get into triangles. Blogger Red Jet Whistle created this custom rug from carpet tiles!
Erin Lang Norris added this to Houzz Tour: Comfortably Creative in Boston
After discovering FLOR tiles a number of years ago, Amanda found that she was drawn to their versatility but interested in more patterns. With the help of a utility knife and a few colored tiles, she came up with her own clever geometric pattern and assembled the rug in her living room. See the before and after on Amanda's blog, Red Jet Whistle.
3. Mid-century retro in a Boston apartment: This apartment in Boston belongs to Amanda, the author of the blog Red Jet Whistle. In addition to some great thrift scores, her creative moves included displaying a vintage Marimekko piece of fabric with stretchers, and cutting up FLOR tiles to create a unique area rug.

Laura Gaskill added this to 10 Tips for Subletting Your Place
2. Weigh the risks. Even if you own your home or have permission from your landlord, that does not mean you are in the clear. Subletting your home opens you up to potential theft and serious damage that you ultimately will be responsible for. There are certainly horror stories out there about sublets gone wrong, so you should not take the decision to rent out your home lightly. There are ways to minimize these risks but not to eliminate them.
