The secret to longer lasting and beautiful carpet is Capture®. Regular cleaning with Capture® followed by vacuuming is all you need!
Capture Carpet & Rug Dry Cleaner is composed of thousands of tiny particles that behave like super sponges to absorb dirt, spills and allergens. Capture is safe on all types of fibers and fabrics and is approved for use on all stain resistant carpets. It is even safe for use on wool rugs! Professional carpet cleaning without the huge bill.
Once the stain particles have been properly absorbed by the Capture powder, it won’t let them go. You don’t have to worry about tracking dirt and odors from one area of your home to another while using Capture. You can keep using your rooms while you clean, and just vacuum up the powder when you’re done!
Capture is convenient. You can clean your carpets whenever and wherever you want. It cleans everything from spots to spills in hallways or even whole rooms. No rentals or professionals needed and no more wet, soggy carpet.
Capture is safe too! It can be used with children and pets, it won’t damage your carpet or rugs — even wool — and contains no bleach, solvents or harsh chemicals.
It is effective! Capture easily removes the toughest dirt, odors and stains. It’s great for pet accidents and odors and won’t leave any sticky residue, so stains won’t reappear.

In 1928 Marshall Field built a loom capable of recreating the details of a hand woven rug. Since the very beginning Karastan has been known for their elegant machine-made rugs that rival their handmade counterparts. At the 1933 World’s Fair in Chicago, Karastan invited people to walk on one of their Kirman Panel rugs and, after more than 5 million people tracked their footprints across it, they cleaned it up. One side was left unrecognizably filthy while the other was returned to its original beauty and luster. To prove the demonstration was no fluke, they did it again! At the New York World’s Trade Fair in 1939-1940 more than 9 million people walked on their rugs earning Karastan the title of “The Wonder Rungs of America.”
Karastan’s In House Dyeing process uses only Premium dyes guaranteeing superior color clarity, fade resistance and exact color matching. Using coordinating color pallets across the board in each collection makes it easy to match multiple rugs with different styles and patterns. Each rug goes through more than fifty Quality Control checks, ensuring that every rug is as perfect as can be. Not only is Karastan a green company, but every rug is also made in the USA, shipping from Eden, North Carolina. Karastan makes the best machine-made rugs in the world with over 70 years experience.

Stair Runners, or Roll Runners, are often offered to coordinate with choices from area rug collections. There are many advantages to stair runners. They help protect hardwood or stone flooring, provide safer tread on otherwise slick surfaces, and — perhaps the best advantage — is aesthetics.
Stair runners are often the mark of luxury and customization in a home. Paired with area rugs, carpet and other design elements, the runners usually tie the room together with color, pattern and style. They are also the perfect way to ad definition to a particularly open stairway or hallway.
There are also a few ways to decorate a stair runner once you choose to go that direction. Carpet rods and brackets hold the runner in place on the stairs while also adding an antique style to the staircase. With multiple finishes it is easy to match them to any décor and there are many different styles to choose from making it very customizable. Add a touch of class with a brass stair rod and ornate pineapple tip!

Every year Pantone, the global authority on color, surveys the designers of New York Fashion Week and more to bring you the season’s most prominent color trends. This year’s Pantone forecast has everything you need.
The Placid Blue, Hemlock green and Violet Tulip are very versatile pastels that can be paired with almost any other color in the spectrum. These three colors are often found in nature — the tranquil sky blue, the romantic floral purple, and the ornamental green of springtime foliage — which makes them easy to see with bolder hues for a modern palette.
The token neutral this year is the warm and toasty Sand which pairs beautifully with a cool green Hemlock and even the warm grey tones of Paloma for an enticing neutral atmosphere.
The bold Cayenne red paired with the blazing Freesia created a excitement and illumination that will be very popular in wardrobes this season. Celosia orange is the natural third to the warm hue family this year, but also fits swimmingly with the Violet Tulip conjuring images of a setting sun.
We finish this year’s pallet up with Placid Blue’s polar opposite Dazzling Blue and 2014’s Pantone Color of the Year: Radiant Orchid — Violet Tulip’s bolder counterpart. Both of these vibrant hues pair well across the board, adding confidence to other bold colors and complimenting pastels perfectly.

Patterned carpets are one great way to add your own touch of individuality to a room. Whether it’s wall to wall leopard print in your walk in closet or a dark plaid in your man cave, patterned flooring is the perfect way to express yourself.
Bold prints aren’t the only way to add patterns to your life, highly textured carpets using different loop and tuft lengths create dimensional, multi-leveled carpet designs that really jump out at you.
Black and white flooring is making a huge comeback this year thanks to its dramatic checkered pattern — which can be laid out straight or diagonally — that helps every other piece in the room stand out.
Herringbone is back! Many people are reclaiming these floors from centuries old French Chateaus and repurposing them in newer homes for authenticity.
Bold patterns ranging from chevrons to octagons and medallions are also being made from tile and stone and even being painted. Moroccan Tile, inlaid marble and limestone, and stencil painted floors have been huge this year.
