The Beautiful Patterns of Cut & Loop Carpet

As the name suggests, cut & loop carpet has a combination of high cut tufts and lower loops in a variety of sculptured patterns. Tough and durable, cut & loop carpets can be used in any place that gets a lot of activity. But, probably the most attractive feature of these carpets is the beautiful, yet subtle patters that they can create. Unlike patters created by using different color fibers, cut & loop patterns usually use all the same color fibers. The pattern is created by the difference in texture between the cut ends of the fibers and the looped pieces. These carpets are great at adding a dimension of texture that creates an enhanced plush profile and camouflages traffic patterning. Here are some of our favorite cut and loop styles.

 

Striations & Waves

Catch a wave with these free-flowing patterns. They’ll help hide traffic marks and small stains and they add just the right amount of interest to your floors.

Wall To Wall Carpet Styles That Make Great Area Rugs

For many of us, new flooring is simply not always in reach. However, this doesn’t mean you have to neglect your floors. Layering with an area rug is the perfect way to add warmth, dimension and interest to a room, and an easy way to keep your home on trend at a price that won’t break the bank. Our recommendation for finding the perfect area rug? Find a wall to wall (or broadloom) carpet you love, and have it cut and bound to your ideal dimensions. Insider tip: Depending on the size you’re looking for, you may be able to utilize a carpet remnant, saving yourself even more money. We’ve compiled 12 of our favorite wall to wall carpets that would make beautiful, on trend area rugs:

GO GEO

Geometric designs are everywhere in interiors and for good reason. Adding a geometric rug not only adds interest to a design, but is a wonderful way to break up an open concept layout to define an individual room or space. Dip your toe into this trend by opting for a subtle design within a neutral color family.

 

NATURAL FIBERS

Natural textiles and materials continue to make waves in the world of interior design and flooring has not been left behind. We’re seeing an increase in the amount of styles that evoke the look of naturally fibers like jute and sisal. Not only is this design extremely approachable, but it also nurtures a sense of well-being a comfort.

 

MOSAIC MOTIF

Mosaic-style design is one of this year’s top trends in flooring, and what better way to dabble than with an area rug. With so many colors and patterns, the options are endless for a mosaic-style area rug.

 

STRIKING STRIATIONS

Combining organic textural qualities with luxurious, lustrous accents, area rugs are mimicking the natural characteristics of wood and stone, making the perfect pair for rustic hardwood and matte tile flooring. This trending construction is achieved with an increasing use of striations along with blends of beige, gold, gray and taupe fibers.
