NATICK, MA--(Marketwire - Oct 9, 2012) -  Dover Rug & Home, offering the largest selection of fine floor coverings and window treatments in New England, is proud to be participating as the floor and rug sponsor in Boston Magazine's Design Home 2012. This marks the sixth time Dover Rug & Home is involved in this charitable event.

The Design Home 2012 is now open for tours and runs for six weeks, through November 12th, with all proceeds benefitting the Ronald McDonald House Charities of New England.

Built by New England builder Eugene Mattie, The Design Home is a custom-designed residence within the sanctuary of Cowings Cove, a private community in Norwell, MA. The home is an inspirational showcase, featuring design components and brands from Dover Rug & Home, GerrityStone, Clarke, Circle Furniture and others in the Greater Boston design community led by the vision of interior designer Vani Sayeed. This project is unique in that it will represent a cohesive design aesthetic while highlighting some of the designs and products that make the Boston area a leader in home and interior design.

Dover Rug & Home provided a variety of flooring solutions in The Design Home. Solid hardwood flooring with a combination of red and white oak in crisp and fresh tones is used in the kitchen and powder room. Vinyl flooring, which provides a non-slip service with durability and thermal insulation, is found in the porch. An environmentally friendly option -- cork flooring -- is used in the lower levels, providing an effective vibration absorber. Additionally, hand knotted rugs grace a number of areas. Sourced from around the world, the rugs are composed of a myriad of densities as well as knot counts. A variety of styles are represented: contemporary designed rugs are featured in the office and entryway, traditional in the dining room and child's room, and transitional in the living room and master bedroom retreat.

In addition to home tours, The Design Home is hosting a seminar series to share the most up-to-date information on home design, technology and trends. Dover Rug & Home is participating in a number of activities, including the seminar Green Product Trends on Thursday, November 1st, 10:30AM - 12 noon. Joining Mahmud Jafri of Dover Rug & Home as a presenter are Jim Gerrity and Mike Schena from GerrityStone and Deb Dumel from Frank Webb Bath Center.

"We participate in several design events a year, but the Boston Magazine's Design Home is one that really stands out. It gives us the opportunity to showcase our rugs, carpets and flooring with some of the area's finest furniture, art and home product retailers. The end result is a stunning display of home design," states Mahmud Jafri, CEO of Dover Rug & Home. "Design Home is inspirational and accessible to everyone, from first time homeowners to those looking to renovate, to professional interior designers. Most importantly, it benefits a wonderful charity -- the Ronald McDonald House."
