The five basic carpet styles

They are:
  • Frieze: With its long twisty fibers, they are cozy, inviting and have a casual feel. They’re best for family rooms and basements, not formal spaces.
  • Berber: It’s a looped style, ranging from the short, tightly woven ones to the thicker. They work well in home offices and family rooms.
  • Saxony: This is what comes to most minds when people think of carpet. It’s a cut pile that’s neither short nor long and it’s appearance, ranges from the velvety appearance to the textured. It fits into any decor, from formal to more casual.
  • Cut and loop: These have a large variety of designs and textures and the loops can either be cut or not. It can work with any type of decor.
  • Shag: There's a good reason this is often called the “sheepdog rug.” It’s fluffy, with very long fibers. Once known for the iconic gold, brown and green colors, technology has expanded the color palette to include everything from purple to multi-colors.
