What is Frieze Carpet?
Sometimes called twist-pile carpet, due to its characteristic tightly twisted fibers, frieze carpet is known for its shaggy, casual look. The uneven surface gives frieze an informal appearance and resists crushing and matting, which helps conceal footprints and vacuum lines. Frieze carpet’s informal appearance makes it a favorite choice for bedrooms, active family rooms, and other busy areas of the home.
- Twisted fibers are extremely durable and more resistant to crushing
- Ideal for rooms where comfort is desired, like bedrooms or the basement
- Uneven surface and mottled color patterns help conceal dirt and stains
Shop Frieze Carpet by Style or Color
Frieze carpet is known for its casual aesthetic, which combines tightly twisted fibers of uneven length and a speckled color pattern. Earth tones like beige and brown are the most popular colors of frieze carpet, and Empire carries a variety of options within that range.
Why Should You Choose Frieze Carpet?
Perhaps more than any other type of carpet, frieze is chosen primarily for its combination of comfort and relaxed style. While carpets like plush or pattern can sometimes make a room feel too formal, frieze’s casual construction creates a welcome surface for all aspects of life, from playtime with the pets in the family room, to a quiet evening of reading on the floor of the kids’ bedroom.
As a twist-pile carpet, its shaggy texture adds an extra character to your interior design scheme, without being as extravagant as the shaggy carpets of yesteryear. Plus, the uneven fibers serve practical benefits, creating a springy surface that hides vacuum lines and footprints, and quickly springs back after furniture is moved. When combined with its specked “barber pole” color options, frieze’s texture is also great at helping hide minor stains. All-in-all, if comfort, casualness, and convenience are at the top of your needs, frieze carpet will likely be your best option.
