A whopping 591,599 posts (and counting) on Instagram can only mean one thing: a hashtag trend has officially gone viral – and the one in question this week is none other than #ihavethisthingwithfloors. Part wanderlust instigator, part home-décor inspiration, it pays tribute to the beautiful floors that we ordinarily walk all over without giving them a second look.
In fact, there are now accounts dedicated entirely to capturing fancy flooring, with @parisianfloors, @ihavethisthingwithtiles, and @ihavethisthingwithfloors being just three examples. Between them, Instagrammers are able to view the stunning mosaics or tiles found in the cafés, museums, and historic buildings of cities such as Marrakesh, Venice, and London.
It also doesn’t hurt that the hashtag brings with it a little eye candy in the form of gorgeous footwear, which explains why it speaks the language of fashion girls and interior designers alike. In the edit below, Savoir Flair shares a handful of posts that feature shoes and flooring of equal appeal.
The moral of the story here? Always look down.
