Our Website. Now 86.32% Better...More or Less -

Our I.T. staff has been working diligently and the end result is our NEW and IMPROVED company website. With the popularity of hard surfaces, our custom area rug business has grown, so we've made some changes to our web site to help you find what you're looking for.

Better Organized

We've re-organized our Shagtastic, Couture, and Contemporary Classics rug collections into more specific categories.


 

Easy

Now you'll find "Shags", Stripes", and "Loops". Simple and to the point. Find your style, use the "Color Options" tab at the top of the page and select your color to start your sample request. (optional).


 


More Options

We've added "Broadloom Rugs" as a category option. While any of our sisal, wool, and Stainmaster nylon styles can be made into a fashionable rug, it can sometimes be hard to explain. This simplifies the process. Simply fill out your sample order by selecting your carpet color(s), your edge treatment option, and proceed to checkout where you can either order samples or give us the size you desire for a quote.


 


Nothing takes the hard edge off a hard surface floor than a soft, comfortable rug and we have a rug for every one of those hard surface floors you're selling AND at every price point.

Strawberry Fields Forever

This is Candy Finley of Myers Carpets in Atlanta.  She's about to discover that Unique's Crème de la Crème Multi-Purpose Latex Adhesive does not make a good topping for strawberries.  Actually that's not true, its whipped cream. Our representative, Jill Longfellow pulled out all the stops on a recent Product Knowledge meeting. Party hats even!

Twist

 Simply put, to make carpet yarn perform like crazy, manufacturers add twist. The  tighter it's twisted, the more durable yarn becomes. But that's not the whole story.  As examples, the lines used to secure mega-yachts to moorings as they arrive in Monaco for Formula 1 races, or belaying ropes used by climbers scaling Mt. Everest are examples of extremely tightly-twisted nylon...Durable but far less than aesthetically pleasing. For carpet manufacturers it's sort of a double-edged sword. On one hand, tightly-twisted yarn performs but it can be as soft and comfortable as Carrera marble. Plus the tighter yarn is twisted, the smaller it becomes so apparent-value is compromised. On the other hand, larger yarns are often created by limiting the amount of twist resulting in aesthetically pleasing, soft textures with lots of apparent value but they can lack the long-term durability of tightly twisted products. Accordingly, manufacturers are constantly balancing aesthetics and durability.  And twist is a major factor in that balancing act. So consumers, when considering soft aesthetically pleasing and often large-scale products, should consider them for areas of the home that don't experience heavy traffic such as living rooms (where very little actual living takes place), dens, or bedrooms. In areas of heavier traffic such as hallways, stairs, or family/great rooms, shorter, denser, tightly twisted products are ideal and when installed over a proper cushion still offer softness underfoot.
