Hemphill’s Rugs & Carpets is happy to offer these great new designs from Stanton Carpet.  One of the comments that we hear from both our clients AND sales representatives is how great our selection is.  Keeping in mind that sales reps see a lot of showrooms in their travels.  However, when the president or national sales manager from one of our vendors comes in and makes the same comments, we know we have a good thing going.  Often times, upper management from our suppliers will come into our showroom to show concept products, ask our opinion about colors, etc.

Being a Wools of New Zealand Premier partner is another reason to visit our showroom.  There are fewer than 100 Premier Partner showrooms throughout the United States.  The designation is by invitation and application only.  Hemphill’s Rugs & Carpets offers New Zealand wool carpet and area rugs from over 20 suppliers.

Inside Scoop: Wool Carpet Mill Tour

Being a member of the Wools of New Zealand Premier Partner advisory council, I had the opportunity to tour several wool carpet mills and facilities outside of Atlanta, GA.  Our first stop was J Mish.  J Mish makes all of their wool carpet in the United States.  Their manufacturing facilities and warehouses are extremely clean.  I have toured quite a few carpet mills during the past 20 plus years of being in this business.  J Mish does something that I have never seen before.  They do not leave any carpet roll unwrapped.  If the roll is opened to cut 20′ off for an order, it is wrapped again before being put away.  Our meeting continued through a great catered lunch that included, of course, sweet tea along with a home made strawberry shortcake.  Thank you so much Don for hosting our group.

Our next stop was Godfrey Hirst.  The mill is based in Australia.  We were treated to a tour of their new larger distribution facility in Georgia.  Godfrey Hirst is the largest manufacturer of wool carpet in the world. Our meeting with Godfrey Hirst’s “numbers man”, John Sheffield was time well spent as he guided our group down a path that we feel will pay great dividends to the select Premier Partner showrooms.  Thank you to John & Lori for a great meal at the Barnsley Resort in Adairsville, GA.

Day two of our adventure started with a visit to Stanton Carpet which also includes the brands of Antrim, Royal Dutch and Rosecore.  The company is similar to Godfrey Hirst in that they do not manufacture carpet in the United States.  They import their carpet from throughout the world including China, Europe and India.  The company does, however, fabricate area rugs in the facility in Georgia.  They have huge air tables with binding and serging machines dotting the perimeter.  Comments about having an air hockey tournament on these fabricating  tables created some laughs.  Again, we found the warehouse to be especially clean and were impressed by the volume of inventory.

Our second visit was with Hibernia Woolen Mills at a Mexican restaurant called La Paz in Marietta, GA.  We had some time constraints due to travel plans.  Eric introduced the group to some stunning new patterns and concepts that are a welcome addition to the current line of Hibernia products.  Currently, Hibernia manufactures all of its carpet in the United States with distribution facilities in California and Georgia.  In fact, the home office is in Whittier, CA about an hour away from our showroom.  Co-owner Eric Sharff is a seasoned young veteran in this industry and seems to have set up a specific career goal in mind a couple of decades ago after leaving a position at Nike.

Perhaps the best part of the two day meeting were the new friends that I gained – Larry and Karen from Lafayette, CA; John from Houston; Kate from Chicago; Steve & Hilary from Boston; and Sam from Cinci.

The end result of our meetings and discussions is that the Premier Partner Showrooms are going to be able to offer our clients preferred pricing on ALL branded New Zealand Wool products twice per year, special wool carpet not found elsewhere in the United States, educated sales teams that are wool specialists and great product knowledge.

Stair Carpet – Go Big

Here is a staircase that we installed several years ago.  Guest what? The same client has moved to a new home and will be using the same carpet in their new home.  Shown here is an animal print carpet.  A bold and creative carpet installed on stairs can make a great visual impact in your home.  It makes a boring area take on some life and gives a real custom look to your home.

Like animal prints?  Hemphill’s Rugs & Carpets offers a huge selection of animal print carpets and rugs from Glen Eden, Stanton, Royal Dutch, Masland, Bellbridge, Kane, Karastan, Robertex, Couristan and Nourison.

Extreme Makeover Without Going to Extremes

Instantly transform a room from the ground up. Shown here, Nourison’s Nourmak area rug creates a traditional feel and the same room with a more contemporary rug from the company’s Elements collection.

Think an “extreme makeover” project has to include a sledgehammer and general contractor? Well, interior design does not always have to include knocking down walls or expensive construction.

One of the easiest ways to change an interior is to start with new area rugs, which go far beyond merely providing covering for a floor. They can serve as the impetus for a new color palette and decorating scheme, changing the entire look and feel of a room without breaking the bank. From traditional Persians to transitional styles, to contemporary works of art, there are more styles to choose from at every price point than ever before.

“Today’s designs have a level of sophistication that just wasn’t available in the past,” says Joyce Lowe, a veteran industry design expert, and VP Area Rug Sales for Nourison, the world’s largest manufacturer of handmade area rugs. “Just about any design type is now available in nearly every construction, with textures, carvings, and fiber mixtures that create striking highlights and pattern details.”

Are you a traditionalist? Choose an heirloom quality hand-made rug from the Nourmak collection, hand made of rich New Zealand wool, or Nourison 2000, highlighted with pure silk-accented designs. Want a living room that’s sleek and modern? A designer rug from Calvin Klein home, rich in texture, color and style, can provide the starting point.

Color is of course, a huge component of a room’s décor and should be chosen with care. “A basic rule of thumb in interior design is to select one neutral tone and two brighter accent colors that combine in a pleasing way,” adds Lowe. Transitional and contemporary rugs from Nourison make choosing accent colors easy because world-class design teams have already selected colors that work well together. Simply pull and match colors from the field of design details.

“Your choice of accessories should complement the décor,” says Lowe. Wall colors, window treatments and accessories are important to a good redesign, none of which need be expensive to change. Toss out old curtains, candles and other accessories from your old room and bring in high fashion pillows, and other accents in complementary colors and styles. You’ll be surprised at how dramatic the change will be.
