A Step Above.

I literally almost stumbled over the best and newest in floor coverings when I made my first foray into A Step Above, a home accessories gallery and interior design shop in the Jeanette Plaza on the Tamiami Trail. Owned by Lois Ross, A.S.I.D., who has other offices in Chicago and West Bloomfield, Michigan, this fascinating contemporary (ultra-modern, really) showroom features canvas area "rugs." They are bright, shiny, bold one-of-a-kind, scrubbable and utterly charming. Ranging in size from a square big enough for an entrance foyer to a long hall runner, these chic and humorous pieces of floor art are priced from $300 up. Choose from what's in stock or ask Mrs. Ross to suggest colors and designs that will work with your home. The shop also has hand-painted pillows, designer halogen lamps, metal sculpture, funny ceramic busts of sports or professional figures, large Chinese lacquer boxes, wine goblets in twisted colorful glass, jewelry and exquisite perfume vials. A 20-percent-off sale is not in progress, but even if it weren't I'd advise anyone who likes things modern to form a friendship with Lois Ross and her splendid new store.
