Patterned carpets add variety and texture to your space

The manufacturing of carpet – which can be described as sewing strands of yarn into a backing material – creates thousands of yarn loops. When the carpet is tufted with a high and low loop and left uncut, you have an unlevel, hi-lo or patterned loop. You can also have a patterned loop referred to as a cut loop. This occurs when some of the loops are cut, usually to form a distinctive pattern in the carpet. In some cases you may hear people refer to a distinct coloration in the carpet as a pattern. This is not uncommon but in most cases they are usually referring to a printed pattern or coloration in the yarn.

Patterns in a carpet can provide a rich layer of sophistication and design to any room. ¬†At Shaw, you’ll find a wide range of options including geometric patterns, organic patterns, large, and small. ¬†Oversized geometrics are actually one of the design trends that Shaw’s Color, Style, and Design team have identified as a MEGATREND in the world of home design.

If you’re looking to create a design that will truly make a statement and make others take notice, you may find just what you’re looking for with a patterned carpet.
