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 man-made 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.
Berber Carpet (Natural and Casual)
Low–profile, unassuming appearance for contemporary to country to cottage styles and warm, personal atmosphere.

Most versatile carpet; gentle softness complements every area of home.
Frieze Carpet (Casual Comfort)
Lightly twisted fibers create soft, bouncy, springy feel—great on bare feet.
Plush Carpet (Formal Elegance)
Softest carpet available; deep, luxuriant thickness cradles feet in rich comfort.
Pattern Carpet (Formal to Contemporary)
Texture–on–texture design and soft–to–bold color combinations.
