Before You Shop

Imagine the floor as your room's "5th wall". This is a large space to present a visual accent, which reflects your personality and lifestyle. A rug can completely alter the mood of a room, or even change the entire color scheme. Let us help you complete a "soft" room remodel today!

  • Measure your space.
  • Take pictures of your room with your smart phone or iPad.
  • Collect and bring in fabric swatches, sofa cushions, accent pillows, paint chips, a wood, tile or flooring sample that you'd like to coordinate with a rug.

Upon your store visit, our trained staff will review your requirements and suggest rug designs with layout options that are tailored to your personal needs. Plus, you'll receive professional advice on current home fashions and color trends.

Rug Benefits

  • Comfort Underfoot - Your every step is soft and cushioned.
  • Muffle Sound - Do you have wood, stone or tile floors? A plush rug can absorb sound providing echo relief.
  • Create a Focal Point - Consider a rug for highlighting a special area. For instance, a round rug can further define a round table or a special gathering area.
  • Flooring Protection - Lay rugs over high traffic areas to protect from wear, scratching and soiling.
  • Floor Art - Express yourself, or get that designer look.
  • Finishing Touch - Rugs tie a room all together.
Flying carpets are a fairy tale, but a thoughtfully selected area rug can create a magical space in your home.

Visual Rhythm

with host Lisa Haffner

Visual Rhythm is a decorating technique using the color of rugs to form an exciting visual theme throughout a home. Learn how to select and place color-coordinated rugs that are not necessarily identical. This creates a cohesive design scheme that can be threaded from one room to another. You may even continue this theme outdoors to the patio, cabana and poolside.

This "whole home" decorating approach simplifies the rug selection process for homes with multiple rooms requiring rugs. Follow these steps to enhance the flow of color throughout your home, thus harmonizing the décor.

Map your home. Determine rooms that would benefit with the placement of a rug.

Select one color. Choose the predominate color that will be featured in the main rug. Accent colors will become apparent with the additional colors that are shown in the rug. This color theme will then be spread from room to room with variations in patterns by the use of coordinating rugs.

Set the mood. Tell us about your home setting and lifestyle. Based on this information we'll be happy to recommend color coordinating groups of rugs especially for you.

The word VISUAL means: relating to, or used in seeing. The word RHYTHM means: pattern, movement, recurrence with a beat, as you would find in a song or poem.
