I was thinking back on our cabin we used to own on the North Shore in Belfair, WA. We had two dogs who loved their Milk Bones. When I would vacuum there would be a loud clatter of the machine picking up all the little dog bone pieces I could not see.
And that is the story of the Olefin berbers that was sold for so many years. Long-lasting, tough and hard to stain, hiding nerdlies in the carpet.
Finding Olefin berber today is impossible. Wondering why, I called the largest distributor on the East Coast. I found out that with all the other carpet options out there today that they have decided not to manufacture the dyes necessary to dye the fibers. So there you have it.
Still looking for an alternative, I did find a small company in Dalton GA, family owned, that makes their own carpeting. They have three nice PET or Polyester looped carpets.
The samples came in today. So if you are still looking for a Berber style looped carpet then one of these three should fit the bill. This fiber is much softer than the Olefin.
We are excited to be bringing in a brand new hardwood collection. Here is a picture of one of their beautiful woods.
We will have our new display soon. You can look at the entire line at
A very interesting tile design
There is nothing quite like Alterna. It is an engineered stone flooring. The core is made from limestone and the surface is made with a non-porous resilient surface. It is easy to clean and care for. It is ideal for high-moisture areas.
How often when visiting our southern states do we love the ceramic tile we see installed. But here in the Pacific NW we often have to use area rugs to warm the floor. Not so with these tiles. They are warmer to the touch.
There are 12 grout colors to select from. OR…..forget the grout to make cleaning even easier. The look will be a tight rectified tile look.
On sale now through April.
