  • Room Type

    A carpet for a living room, for example, will differ from one for a kitchen. Both need to be hard wearing, but in different materials to suit the living style.Our shaggy range offers deep pile carpets that add softness to a room and dampens sound.

    Our plain range contains beautiful wool carpets for warmth and style. Kitchens favour a flat woven carpet for simplicity in being easy to clean. This is the reason flat-woven also work for home offices wheeled chairs can easily move over their smooth surfaces. Flatweave designs give strength and durability and can be wiped clean easily.

    Design

    The design of the you choose is of course entirely up to you. We offer everything from plains to Handcarved florals, shaggy warmth to hardwearing polypropylene and durable flatweave designs.

    It is worth considering other pattern and colour within the room’s decor before you make your selection. If your pictures or textiles are busy, a neutrally- patterned or block coloured carpet will sit better among them. For rooms that are minimalistic in look, or plainer and more pared back in their design details, texture, pattern and a mixed palette can add interest.
