Custom Designer Rugs

IMG_5347 IMG_5348 IMG_5349 IMG_5350

We love to do custom area rugs!  We recently reconnected with an old friend who is now our liason for custom tufted rugs overseas.  And his wife is our artist to assist you in creating the perfect rug!  We now offer these rugs in a variety of fibers including nylon, New Zealand wool, bamboo and silk.  Fibers can also be combined.  We have a library of designs. We can modify the design to meet your specifications.  We have 100’s of ARS color poms (see below) to select from which are keyed to the universal Pantone color choices.   We offer artwork (as shown in the images above) within 48 hours at no cost.  We make a strike off (as shown in the images above for a nominal charge).  The strike off cost will be rebated with an order. This is a terrific program.  We have sourced with an old friend in the industry to offer this program at a very competitive price and reasonable delivery times.  Only the finest fibers and constructions are offered.  You will not be disappointed.   Consider using fabrics as your inspiration.  We can match a fabric pattern (see below) or interpret it to fit your design needs.

What Do Your Stairs Say?

One of the great opportunities from my perspective that is so often missed is punching up your stairs with patterned carpet, it can either be very contemporary, transitional,   or very traditional.  Below are listed many of the really great things about considering this when replacing staircase carpeting.

1) It takes a boring or marginal staircase and makes a really great design statement.

2) Although it looks very high end it is not necessarily very costly. Stairs don’t usually require much carpet.  The cost on stairs is in the installation. The polypropylenes that are used a lot for this type of application are not usually much more than what the rest of your carpets cost.  The wools however can be very pricey but again not a lot of  carpet is required.

3) If you use a print  maintenance is easy, they don’t show dirt as much as a plain carpet and both materials that are  mentioned clean up very well.

4) Being a low profile carpet both, your wools and polypropylene wear like iron. Normally stairs show wear worse than any other place in your home but not in this case.
