Wall–To-Wall Carpet & Your Design Style
Wait! What about wall-to-wall carpet and my design style? You can welcome wall-to-wall carpet in any design style and layer in design-forward accessories to bring your preferred look alive. Many interior styles celebrate the look of a floating area rug and the contrast between hard flooring and the embellishment an area rug provides. However, if you inherited carpeting or prefer it, floating a cherished rug over carpeting or proudly showcasing the seamless look of a wall-to-wall carpet is a design statement in itself.
Many of our weaves are available as broadloom for wall-to-wall installations. Stunning TENCEL® carpet from Jacaranda, playful wool weaves from Best Wool’s Monasch Collection, sleek SynSisal® synthetic sisal or completely natural wool rugs from our Pure Wool collection are versatile and fashionable options for that wall-to-wall cohesive look. Our entire collection of broadloom carpets is sure to inspire and don’t forget to order samples—viewing the color in your space and feeling the carpet’s texture will help you make a final decision.
