Three Ways to Get Your Front Door or Entryway Ready for the Holidays

While a festive wreath or a pretty arrangement of branches will offer a beautiful “welcome” from your front door, we encourage you to make the first step into your home just as welcoming. We carry high-quality area rugs in a range of shapes, colors, textures and sizes, but all of them are made to last, feel good and impress. For entryways, we suggest durable wool pile rugs with strong, cotton foundations that won’t lose their shape. One of the benefits of rugs is the flexibility they give you to swap out and rearrange throughout the year. Pick out a beautiful rug to adorn your entryway during the holidays – choosing colors that compliment your seasonal decor. Our expansive collection is available for you to peruse in our showroom any time, and we have knowledgeable designers and salespeople to help you pick the right rug for your style, home design and holiday decor – one that will look beautiful and feel welcoming for many bright holiday seasons to come.

Hardwood vs Carpet – Who Wins the Flooring Battle?

Hardwood is not better than carpet by default. You can have function, luxury and class in the form of carpet, too. In the 1930’s, we hand-sewed carpet seams into high-end homes and offices all over Southern California. Now, we don’t hand-sew our carpet seams, but we do hand-pick and we still install every floor and carpet with integrity. Call us today and we’ll make sure you have timeless, classic quality and beauty on your floors.
