Ancient but beautiful
Modern carpet traces its roots to ancient times. In the sixteenth century, merchant adventurers and explorers brought rich textiles and rugs to Europe from the east. It wasn't long before the appreciation of textile floor coverings took off, came to America, and became one of the most fundamental and beautiful parts of the modern home interior.

Why choose carpet?
As one of the most popular types of flooring, carpet is:
- Relatively inexpensive
- Comfortable underfoot
- Easier to install and replace
- Warmer, softer, and quieter
Types of carpet
Cut pile is the most popular type of carpet, featuring sheared fiber strands with exposed ends. It is available in a variety of lengths and thicknesses, so you'll have a range of options to choose from. The twist of these fiber strands is key—the tighter the twist, the more texture and durability your carpet has. Loop pile features fiber that is not sheared; rather, it features tight twisted loops that resist matting and crushing while creating unique patterns and texture. This type of carpet is highly durable, but when choosing loop pile, be aware of pulled loops that can snag and damage your carpet. Cut & loop pile seamlessly blends both sheared and looped strands for an intricate and unique look that features plenty of texture. This style is often used to create patterned looks.
