Trendcasting Thoughts: Some of the nations premier mills are bringing an exciting new style to carpeting.

Other mills are bringing to market innovative textures, weaves and blends.
The New Neutrals
Gone are the days where we were limited to tan and beige if we desired a soft, complimentary background for our furniture and accessories. Today the new neutrals of grays and taupes fill the bill and provide a fresh look for any space.
Artistic Patterns and Textures
Can increase our perception of quality and elegance in a carpet. Why settle for carpet only as a room backdrop when it can be a primary design focus. Patterns and textures are stylish for their look and popular because they minimize the appearance of dirt and hide the vacuum marks.
Innovative Weaves and Blends
Thanks to enhanced manufacturing capabilities we are seeing innovative designs featuring carpet constructed of cut and loop yarns as well as high and low loop yarns. Flecks of color sprinkled against a neutral background give a fresh look to design a room around.
