Round 2 of the Softness Revolution!

Share
Tweet


You may or not remember me posting about a soft revolution in carpeting a couple years ago:

What had happened was that the carpet industry came across a new way of making carpet fibers.  Simply put: they ssssllllloooowwwed down the manufacturing process, greatly reducing the ‘split ends’ in the carpet fibers, and they also were able to make each individual strand much thinner so they could stuff more strands in each tuft of carpet fiber.  They were trying to increase the durability and stain resistance; it worked.  They also got the side benefit of super soft carpeting.


Guess what!  They did it again!


We have two brand new lines of carpet that is the softest carpet I have ever felt.  Think silky soft!


And each line includes multiple different styles from your classic plush and frieze…


To the cut-n-loop and other patterned carpets!


These carpets have our Platinum warranties (with a couple Golds also) which promise an excellent level of stain resistance and durability.

Want a personalized, private tour?  Let me know and I’ll be glad to show off our new toys. 😀

Have Fun,

Kevin Bryson is the Manager of our Downtown Westminster Showroom of Carroll County, Maryland.  Kevin has been a part of the Mercer Team for over a decade and has collected countless hours of training.  Here he talks about why he likes Resista SoftStyle carpet and his favorite style.
Kevin Bryson, Manager, Downtown Westminster MD

“In my opinion, this is the best quality polyester on the market. 

Resista SoftStyle carpet is highly stain resistant

The line has many very bright, beautiful colors and very thick, heavy handed carpets; all for a thin nylon price.  Plus, Resista Soft Style has great warranties, styles, looks, and colors. 


You can’t go wrong with Resista Soft Style.  It’s high stain resistance (with No Exclusions on ANY Food and Drink) makes this a great carpet for a Family or Dining room.  And with its softness, a great option for bedrooms also. 


My favorite is Soft Spoken Ultimate in Tiger Eye due to the awesome feel and name!!”

[My Favorite] Resista SoftStyle by Martha Bubert

Martha Bubert is one of our in-house designers and has been working with us for over a decade.  She’s great at helping customers pull all aspects of a design together from the floor up.  Martha utilizes her expertise to help homeowners out of our Historic Downtown Westminster Showroom in Carroll County of Maryland.



“Having grown up in the days of ‘shag’ I have always been hesitant to recommend a polyester to my clients, but that was before our new Resista Soft Style line of carpet! 
“Not only is it made with a strong, durable fiber but even its stain resistant qualities have been enhanced with the latest in polyester technology.  When the fiber is still in liquid form, the stain protection treatment is added, making it apart of the fiber itself.  Once it is spun into a yarn our design team makes certain there is a style perfect for each room in your home. 
Resista has some of the thickest multicolor friezes found anywhere.  I would not hesitate to recommend any style in this line.  In fact, I would love to have Resista’s Soft Comfort Supreme in my own home.”
Does this sound like a carpet that you would like to have or already have in your home?  I’d love to hear what you think!

[My Favorite] Tigressa SoftStyle by Martha Bubert

Martha Bubert is our in-house home design expert.  She has been a part of the Mercer Team for over a decade and received her design degree from the Maryland Institute College of Art.  In this post she talks about why she likes Tigressa SoftStyle and her favorite design.


“Our Tigressa line of carpet uses the newest in nylon fiber technology on the market today. This gives each style the softest feel while maintaining strength and longevity. Using very fine fibers (smaller than a human hair), Tigressa twists twice as many together as other brands to create this great carpet line. Think of a steel cable created by many individual strands for strength.




“Tigressa uses a revolutionary procedure to apply the stain protection as well. During the manufacturing process while the carpet is still warm it is completely submerged into the stain protection. This allows the open cells in the fibers to soak up more stain protection than other brands which simply spray the surface of the carpet once the manufacturing process is complete.



“Tigressa also includes a soil warranty which is rare in this industry. With top warranties in every level, Tigressa will give your home not only the style you desire but the assurance you will always be pleased with its superior performance for the life of the carpet.



“Let me show you the Tigressa cut and loop patterns which are my favorites for today’s modern homes.”
