Congo and Canary Hand Loomed Rugs and Carpet

I’d like to showcase two of the newest additions to the Antrim line from Stanton, Congo and Canary. What beautiful woven wool carpet patterns they’ve created in a lovely color palette!

Antrim Canary

Canary is a mini chevron pattern available in 7 different colors that all incorporate a neutral base of either ivory or white. There’s a lovely color called Cord, which is like a clean straw hue combined with a soft ivory. The Wave combination features a powder blue and white while the Ink variation is a crisp navy and white. Also available in Dove, Metal, and Earth the Canary style is perfect for any room in your home that needs a little floor lift!

 

Antrim Congo

Congo is the sister style to Canary. It is available in the same color palette as Canary but is a traditional herringbone pattern with a five inch stripe. This could be a dynamic stair and hallway runner or a stunning area rug in anyone’s home. It feels both fresh and traditional offering the perfect answer for anyone looking for that transitional element.

 

Accommodating and Luxurious

Both of these styles come in 15 foot widths so creating an area rug or installing in a wall to wall carpet application in most rooms will not require a seam. The dense 100% wool guarantees years of luxurious durability in addition to being both non-allergenic, air purifying and naturally flame retardant.

Stop in and look at both of these lovely new styles from Antrim along with several new offerings from Stanton, Karastan, Kane, Tuftex and many others.

When thinking about flooring options carpet is always a favorite especially for bedrooms and family rooms. The soft fibers underfoot and the acoustic aspect make carpet a natural for these areas. Additionally, the vast array of colors, textures, and patterns available bring your unique personality into any area.

Carpet is the most inexpensive flooring option in most cases. Easy to install, it generally requires no more than furniture moving to give your home an instant update!

The majority of carpet companies now offer more than traditional wall to wall installation, they are also offering custom sized area rugs made to your specifications. This is a great idea for formal living  or dining rooms, or any other area you would like to a pop of color or texture.  Whether you’d like a rug bound in a corresponding or contrasting color or serged, which is similar to whipstitching, is another way to personalize your rug.

For young families with pets and children Shaw has a great line ,”Life Happens”, which features an impervious backing so no spills or accidents are able to seep through the carpet to the padding and flooring beneath. This makes cleaning an easy fix.

We offer luxury wool and nylon carpets from such noted companies as Stanton, Fabrica, Couristan, and Kane. We’re also pleased to have added the Karastan line just this month.

We’d love to see you in our expansive showroom and give you a tour of all that’s new in the world of carpet. Hope to see you soon!
