These fun and creative linoleum insets were created by Dominion Linoleum’s ‘décor-conscious designers’ as a DIY flooring tile inset back in 1961. People could send for free cutting guide templates and full instructions. Then they could add their own unique inset tiles to their floors. What a neat idea. These designs are giving me some creative inspiration for a home décor project…stay tuned!
