Hemphill’s Rugs & Carpets has gone directly to the source many times to get the same products offered by Stark and Kravet. This holds true with our New Canaan Wilton Carpet and Rug Collection.
Our showroom offers these products for wall to wall carpet installation, stair runners and made to order rugs.

Keep your area rugs looking and feeling their best by following these seamless tips for basic care, deep cleaning, and stain removal. Furthermore, learn how to properly treat specific types of rugs.
Typically, exceptional rug care is determined by size, construction, and material. Hemphill’s Rugs & Carpets recommends that you care for large-size area rugs as you would wall-to-wall carpet.
Vacuum big rugs to remove dirt. As with carpet, the most essential thing you can do for larger rugs is to vacuum them on a daily basis. If an area rug is reversible, vacuum both sides. This removes grit and grime that can wear out your area rug prematurely. Take care to not vacuum the fringe of your rug.
Hemphill’s Rugs & Carpets also recommends that you brush out pet hair. A vacuum will sometimes leave pet hair behind. Use a stiff brush to remove the hair, brushing in the direction of the nap of the area rug.
We also advise you to turn your area rugs every year. Foot traffic and sun can put additional stress on your area rugs. Turn them once or twice a year to even out the wear and tear from everyday food traffic.
Shake small rugs. If the area rug is small enough, you can take it outside and shake it or beat it strongly to remove dirt and grit.
Special types of rugs require special cleaning care. Our Orange County Rug Cleaners recommend that you keep care tags on the area rug or in a file which can end up saving you from costly mistakes. Follow these tips for taking care of specialty rugs.
Time becomes essential when your area rug becomes stained. Remember to blot — not rub — the stain and remove moisture from spills as quickly as possible.
We recommend purchasing a WoolClean kit – there are two liquids and one powder designed for specific stains. An instruction guide and cleaning towel are in included. Purchase online HERE

A “re-creation” rug. This Chinda collection rug was originally imported to the United States by Pande Cameron. The Chindia collection was phased out in the 1980’s. Our client loved this rug so much, they wanted another one. We were able to make contact with the original weaver in India via a great friend and mentor of ours. Special thanks to Norm Sweeters for making this happen. This hand knotted “re-creation” is enroute from India. Do you have a rug that you want to “re-create”? We might be able to assist you.

We love finding new products that one does not see everywhere. Our clients appreciate our showroom for the collection of unique floors including carpet, area rugs and floors. No wonder, designers have been gravitating to us from their other trusted sources. Even upper management from major vendors who visit our showroom are amazed. We love the challenge of sourcing new products and invest heavily in samples.
Our new Monaco Collection of carpet and made-to-order rugs is one such example.

In going through our inventory of rugs and some vendor catalogs recently. Oddly, things were all starting to look the same with several vendors overlapping to such as a degree that one wonders how they might separate themselves. I am referring specifically to vendors such as Jaipur, Surya and Loloi. Even their websites look the same. You can find their products everywhere. If I were a hired interior designer, I would be ashamed to show my clients such generic rugs.
During the past year or so, our showroom has gone to great lengths to find rugs that are unique. We are using the brokering services of several gentlemen that are well respected in our industry. We are able to bring our clients, including designers, products from England, Ireland, Romania, Afghanistan, Turkey, Nepal, Tibet, China, Pakistan, Vietnam, USA, Belgium, France, Italy and elsewhere. We are also designing our own patterns and direct importing these rugs.
We invested in a color system from ARS that offers 1200 color options in wool. We can make many of our rugs in a made-to-order size. We don’t use the word “custom”, because it does not have to be expensive to get the size you need.
Hemphill’s Rugs & Carpets wants to be a fashion forward leader in floor covering for the home. Having a unique rug on your floor is like having a great dress at a party. And what an embarrassment when someone else has the same one.

The right rug has a unique ability to shape a room and determine the overall atmosphere within a space. Not solely a treat for your feet, a rug can tie the elements of a room together. Stated simply by Edgar Allen Poe, “the carpet is the soul of the apartment.”
