Interior Design just closed voting on this year’s BoY Awards, and the Eco Products category has some excellent entries.  Of which, I noticed this 3D tile called Buzziskin from Buzzispace.  It’s made of ecofelt, or a 100% recycled PET material, in a variety of colors.  Buzziskin is offered in both rectangular and cubic sizes with a self-adhesive backing.  Each tile runs about $150.
