Here's A Brilliant Idea! Custom Colors 

Our current price list shows over 65 broadloom products available in over 350 colors. The vast majority of those colors are "full-house" background shades. There's very little in the way of green, blue and red, but there are a whole lot of perfect neutrals that pair beautifully with green, blue, or red. Great! 
 
But maybe you've got a bright idea that you'd like us to duplicate your own perfect shade. Medium light olive-drab with a touch of pink? No problem! Our ability to custom color wool cuts, loops, and multi-colored patterns as well as nylon loops in solids and heathers is unsurpassed.
 
They're all made right here in Southern California so our turn-around times are quick, and our yardage requirements are surprisingly low. Even lower sometimes if you ask real nice. So give us a try. You'll like the results.

CARPET, THE NOT SO FORGOTTEN FLOORING

No flooring material says style, fashion, comfort and warmth like carpet. No hard surface flooring can compete in these categories no matter what you think of it or how you perceive it. Tufted or woven carpet today can be made to look like anything, and designing a pattern is only limited by one's imagination. This applies to broadloom and carpet tile although broadloom would be the undisputed leader in unlimited pattern and design. Carpet tile styling, which was certainly on display at Neocon this year, is close but when you have to put pieces of modular flooring down the design restrictions are naturally going to be limited especially for expansive and unrepeatable patterns. It's ludicrous to hear sales pitches about vinyl plank and tile being soft and comfortable under foot. It's hard surface flooring after all with the emphasis on hard. Hard surface flooring is never soft, warm and comfortable underfoot and it can never compete with carpet in this arena.
