At one time, a carpet was limited to basic beige. It was treated by designers as a neutral background for the furnishings in a room. Today, there are numerous colors, patterns, and textures available. Carpet can be the focal point of the interior design.
The need for neutral colored carpet still exists. Berber carpet is a popular choice. Today's versions of Berber carpet have more pattern and texture than in the early 90s. A bold look is created by sculptured effects and variations in height.
Traditional Berber offers visual interest with deeper, thicker loop textures and extreme cut differences. Neutral carpet now favors flecks of color, some pattern, and more texture that adds interest to the basic background.
