A carpet is a textile floor covering consisting of an upper layer of “pile” attached to a backing. The pile is generally either made from wool or a manmade fiber such as polypropylene, nylon or polyester and usually consists of twisted tufts which are often heat-treated to maintain their structure.
Understanding a few simple basics about carpet construction will help you make the right choice for your lifestyle and budget.
Formal to Contemporary
Texture–on–texture design and soft–to–bold color combinations
Whole House Carpet
Most versatile carpet; gentle softness complements every area of home
Softest carpet available; deep, luxuriant thickness cradles feet in rich comfort
Natural and Casual
Low–profile, unassuming appearance for contemporary to country to cottage styles and warm, personal atmosphere
Lightly twisted fibers create soft, bouncy, springy feel—great on bare feet
