Don’t stress over spills. Fiber-washed, Scotchgard™-protected polyester resists stains to keep your carpet looking like new.
Quiet or social spaces with moderate to low traffic, like bedrooms, offices, and TV rooms.
Budget 5-10 year performance

Carpet Styles (Appearance & Look)
Loop Construction carpet has dense, looped strands and a low profile for a clean, low-maintenance look. This style is durable, reliable and ideal for high-traffic areas.
Pattern construction carpet is made with varying loop and cut heights for looks that range from bold and dramatic to simple and understated. This low-profile style handles traffic beautifully.
Texture construction carpet has long, crimped yarns for a casual look that works for any room. With higher pile for a super-soft feel, it’s no wonder that texture is our most popular style.
Frieze or twist construction carpet has high, twisted yarns for a longer crimped look and relaxed feel. Its long twists create dimension and visual interest as well as a bouncy, springy feel underfoot.
