There are more than 200 styles and 4,000 colours of wall-to-wall carpet
on the market today. From soft, layered intricate vine and floral designs to multi-levelled patchwork weaves, tailored ribs, geometric loops and lattices, and nubby, terry-towel twists.
Carpet manufacturers today offers the consumer unique and innovative patterns, textures, and colours that are resulting from the latest fibre and manufacturing technologies, offer endless home styling options and are taking the spotlight at every floor show.
Modern carpet textures offer architectural interest to the floor with height variation, sculptured effects and shadowing, and are the perfect contrast to smooth wall and furniture surfaces. Designers are now selecting carpet to create the focus in an overall room design scheme, rather than treating it simply as a neutral backdrop to other furnishings. Contemporary organic patterns coordinate easily with other interior upholstery and drapery fabrications. Even a choice of a subtle design will create interest underfoot and a look that is sophisticated, neutral and pleasing to the eye.
If you are looking for a practical solution for minimizing soil and vacuum marks and increasing the perception of quality and value, texture and patterned carpet are your best choice. Besides being the perfect design medium, no other flooring choice surpasses wall-to-wall carpet for comfort, warmth, sound-proofing, performance, and price.
As life gets more hectic, we strive to make our homes the perfect oasis and surround ourselves with what we like. The trend is to make our homes softer, simpler, and more liveable, and we are expressing ourselves and our own individuality through colour, texture and pattern. To transform a space, designers start from the floor up. Carpet has evolved to become a valuable, infinitely pliant design tool, and is becoming the latest trend, and a key element in the interior design process for any room.
