Twist Pile Carpets

Twist pile carpet is composed from a yarn that has been tightly twisted and set, resulting in a pile with a slightly textured surface.  Twist piles are produced using either plain or heathers colours.

(Heathers are produced using a combination of complimentary coloured fibres in order to obtain a subtle tonal effect.)

Loop Pile Carpets

 In a loop pile carpet the yarn forms loops on the surface of the carpet, either all at the same height, to produce a level loop pile, or with differing heights creating a textured loop pile.

Variations include a traditional tweed style loop known as a Berber which contains subtle highlight flecks. Wool loops are a popular alternative to coir and sisal matting because they have the added comfort, warmth and durability of natural wool.

Saxony Carpets

Saxony carpets are longer dense pile carpets made to create a luxurious deep pile effect.   Saxony carpets are manufactured as both wool and man-made fibres.

Top Tips

Before choosing the carpet type for your room, first read our top tips for buying the right carpet

Please consider the area and AMOUNT OF WEAR it will receive, downstairs rooms and stairs that take higher foot traffic will receive more wear and general soiling than upstairs areas. Be prepared to spend more of your budget on buying a durable, resilient carpet for these areas. A high proportion of our carpets are 100% bleach cleanable and have long guarantees against household staining.
Get your room PROFESSIONALLY MEASURED.  We will help you to achieve the most cost effective way to carpet your house / apartment. By careful planning and use of the correct width of carpet he/she will enable you to minimise waste and save money.  At both our Stratford Upon Avon and Coventry stores we have a professional, fully trained flooring estimator available to help you
Choose a GOOD QUALITY UNDERLAY, this will help prolong the life of your carpet and increase comfort underfoot. A high quality underlay would always be a good investment, as underlay with a good thermal rating is likely to help you to reduce your household bills over time.  It is a good idea particularly for upstairs levels as a quality underlay will help to reduce noise also.
Have your carpet FITTED BY A PROFESSIONAL.  At sofas and beyond we have four teams of professional, experienced and courteous fitters.  Our fitters offer the best rates available for the customer and can fit carpet, laminate or vinyl flooring
Keep your CARPET CARE GUIDE (provided with the carpet) in a safe place, so that you get the best from your new carpet over the coming years. If the carpet carries a long warrantee from the manufacturer, it will usually need registering online.  This is very quick and easy.  We will show you how to do this if you are unsure of anything.
To avoid seams in wider rooms most of our loop and twist pile carpets are made in 5 metre & 4 metre widths.
