Father to a Newborn
Doctors encourage babies to crawl, but his wife didn’t want the baby to crawl on areas that were germ-infested. This included their living room area rug and bedroom carpeting which didn’t leave much crawling space for the baby. No matter how detailed his wife was when cleaning their area rug or carpet she would always find something there. She loved the idea of having a shag rug, but the Father to a Newborn long strands of fabric hid plenty of dirt and germs that are unsafe for a baby, especially in high-traffic areas. Replacing their rugs often would remove much of the worry of providing a cleaner environment for the baby to crawl.

The Pet Lover
After a long and stressful day, she wanted to play with her dog inside the house especially when it was brutally cold outside. However, she hated the idea of dog hair all over the house especially in the living room where the family spent most of their time. She also wasn’t comfortable inviting too many guests over with dog hair all over her couch and area rug. The ability to replace her rugs regularly would eliminate much of her frustration.
Founder # 3 / Operations
Both the husband and wife worked long hours and didn’t have time to update their home. They knew they needed a style update, but as busy professionals, they wanted an easy solution for decorating their home that didn’t require too much effort. The idea of a subscription service was the perfect fit.
