Eco-friendly

At Barry Carpet, we too are passionate about aesthetics and our environmental footprint. We offer several brands that carry a unique type of carpet made out of the organic material, Jute. A completely biodegradable fiber, jute is a great eco-friendly alternative to traditional carpet.

Durable

Naturally thick and durable, these natural fiber rugs are woven into beautiful braided and exotic textures. Even though Jute is strong, it is softer underfoot than alternative earth-friendly materials, like seagrass or sisal.

Stylish Ambiance

A jute rug adds stylish raw texture and may be the perfect accent piece for you to create an organic home decor aesthetic and ambiance. For example, a rug made of bleached jute fabric will produce a clean, laid-back feel. A sisal jute rug, which combines 2 plant fibers, with a dark brown edge, will create a bolder look. A jute rug may complement an area that has anything from a contemporary design to a vintage vibe.

Low Maintenance

Not only that, Jute is low maintenance! It does not require special everyday care, as it is less likely to accumulate as much dirt and dust as other carpets. Naturally brown in color, jute makes stains less noticeable. Jute can also be used as a backing for wool carpet or used in composite form as the underlay for linoleum. Jute is best placed in low-traffic household areas, like in a bedroom or living room, allowing the natural rug to last for many years.

We, at Barry Carpet, look forward to helping you decide which type of eco-friendly flooring works best for your living space. If you find that jute does not suit your taste, we have many other products that can do the trick, such as seagrass, rubber, wool and more! See our Eco-Friendly Flooring Options Here to learn about more earth-friendly flooring options. Give us a call to see if we carry the flooring that supports your design vision!

Flooring Ideas to Compliment the 2017 Color of the Year

By Jill

Photos from Sherwin Williams website

“Weathered, woodsy, complex, cozy.” These are the words emphasized in Sherwin-Williams’ promotional video for their 2017 “Color of the Year.” What color palette comes to your mind when you hear those words? Certainly not last year’s “Alabaster” white…

This year’s “Color of the Year” is “Poised Taupe SW 6039.” Part earthen brown, part conservative gray, Sherwin-Williams’ comments on its choice as: “both modern and classic, and a beautiful balance of warm and cool.” Essentially, Poised Taupe has been defined as “the new neutral.”

Since traditional neutrals have been monochromatic greys, there has been a recent shift in the design world to more complex taupes and browns, according to Sherwin-Williams. Influences include: “natural or organic materials, weathered and worn finishes and global cultural preferences,” denoting its worldly essence. House Beautiful observed that Poised Taupe, “definitely strikes the balance between bold and subtle.”

Floor Covering Weekly recently noted that the design world is seeing a trend in calmer, more peaceful spaces. Largely due to the fact that our lives are busier now than ever with technology and multi-tasking, people want to come home to a place that is the opposite of what they experience during the work day: Serenity. Colors have a huge impact on our mood -- a color like Poised Taupe has the potential to both inspire and pacify.

At Barry Carpet, we embrace Poised Taupe as a gender neutral hue with a polished modern twist. Sherwin-Williams has offered color pairing templates on their website that compliments Poised Taupe in any setting. Here are some examples below:

Wine & Taupe

Deep wine, purple and Poised Taupe bring warmth to the dark tones favored in 2017. Silver grey and intense teal provide balance and drama to this rich, mysterious palette.

Perhaps if you are re-decorating for fall, you may want to pair Poised Taupe with deeper wine and purple hues as in the Sherwin-Williams’ recommended palette: “Wine & Taupe.”


Some beautiful carpet options to pair with the color of the year are:

NEUTRALS

  • Nourison - Texture Weave, Charcoal
  • Stanton - Migrate, Mercury
  • Fabrica - Chez Cote, Blackberry Sorbet

ACCENTS

  • Rosecore - Supreme Envy, Shiraz
  • Bellbridge - Impressions, 20/8007 Volo
  • Louis de Poortere - The Vintage Collection, Forget Me Not

  • California Classics - Mediterranean Collection, Calabria, French Oak

Plaid Is Back

By Jill

Plaid is back. You can expect to see plaid on just about everything lately. From fall runway collections to products even like faucet handles and mirror bases, traditional plaid has made a retro comeback. Not only has plaid returned in the form of textiles and fabrics, it also now has a strong presence in the carpet industry.

At Barry Carpet, we have a variety of new and classic plaid designs that come in different colors, patterns and quality. Bellbridge has introduced a classic navy and off-white plaid in their new Loft collection, suitable to the tastes of both yuppies and hipsters. Fabrica has created a contemporary take on the classic Scottish plaid in their new Burberry collection. With an elevated cross stitch, this new age plaid has a dimensional texture, perfect for a room that requires warmth and durability. Several other brands, such as Couristan, Karastan and Nourison, carry wool and nylon plaids in a wide range of colors to suit palettes for any living spaces.

Architectural Digest notes that “plaid fabrics and furnishings add colorful flair to a room and can balance out contemporary accents with a touch of time-honored style.” Although plaid is classic, it isn’t exclusively reserved for traditional decorating. Instagram famous interior design couple, Syd and Shea McGee, known as “Studio McGee,” share their take on modern plaid: “We’re seeing plaids and checks come back in a big way! From furniture and window treatments to floors, walls, and textiles, the possibilities of bringing this trend to life is endless.”

Are you interested in updating your home to reflect a timeless modern trend? Visit our West LA showroom to view samples of these beautiful carpets and area rugs. One of our talented and friendly sales associates will gladly be able to guide you along the design process and answer any questions you may have. We look forward to helping you plan out your dreams and exceed your expectations.

We are Barry Carpet. Quality and beauty, always with a smile.
