Flooring America Carpet Styles To Consider - Part II

Room scene with Breaking Waves courtesy of Mohawk.

As I mentioned in Flooring America Carpet Styles To Consider Part I, this is my opportunity to get up-close-and-personal with carpet. I'm focusing on several carpet styles worth considering and available at Flooring America stores across North America.

In my previous post, I covered All My Heart, Top Right and Top Left and Lake Winnipeg. Here, I will focus on the two remaining products, Breaking Waves and Baby Moon, both found in Downs.

These Flooring America carpet styles capture many of the characteristics I describe in The Latest in Carpet Style Trends: stylish, luxurious, complementary to hard surface and featuring a range of fashionable colors.

[And, yes, they are made with Wear-Dated carpet fiber.]

Breaking Waves has the most distinct pattern of these carpet styles. For that reason, I include the room scene above to give a better feel for how the pattern works in a room.

The official romance reads: "Create a fashion statement with this exquisitely styled traditional loop pile available at Flooring America. Breaking Waves' great styling and fashion forward color palette was created with your design savvy consumer in mind. 24 inspiring neutral colors compliment this true sophisticated traditional pattern."

It is a level cut loop pattern construction.

From these two photos, you can see how the loop part of the carpet forms the background of the pattern, and the cut pile portion forms the trellis and design pattern.

Breaking Waves is available in 24 inspiring colors, including a lovely white [dove tail] and deep navy/charcoal [sea lion].

Next is Baby Moon.

Baby Moon represents a casual texture or frieze [see Pray Tell: What is a Frieze Carpet?]. It resembles Classic Drive.

Here is the official romance: "Destined to be one of Flooring America's most popular styles. The versatility of Baby Moon will complement any interior approach you have or want. This tone on tone casual texture constructed of Solutia Wear-Dated DuraSoft carpet fiber features soft textured styling in an array of beautiful colors. The combination of casual styling and durability will make this one of the hottest fashion finds around."

Baby Moon looks and feels luxurious. It is deliciously thick and tonal, and you can't go wrong with these 24 colors...

So, there.

You now have an additional six carpet styles to consider. Let me know what you think, and which you prefer, and if you have any questions.

Thank you for reading!

By the way, here is Flooring America's writeup on Wear-Dated from their website [it's hard to find unless you go through the site map].
