Luxury Carpets in Toronto
By Elli Davis, June 30, 2012
Everyone wants their home to be as unique, beautiful, and comfortable as possible. To make every room special, some might want to have truly high-quality and luxurious accessories. Carpeting, without a doubt, is among the most crucial parts of a room, but choosing one that fits well is not an easy task. Where in Toronto can you shop for luxury carpets? This article aims to answer that question.
Today, carpets are not as popular as they used to be. Floors are often covered with wood or stone surfaces with no fabric to be seen. A dark, marble floor might, however, seem a little too cold. That is one of the reasons why we need carpets. Choosing the right one is not easy and a lot of factors have to be considered. The size, style, texture, colour, price, quality, and the specific location within the room (too much sunlight might not be good for wool). So before you purchase your carpet, make sure to discuss all these factors with the sales assistant. There is one simple rule that, in my opinion, applies to everyone purchasing a new carpet: make sure you get the most luxurious, highest quality piece you need and can afford.
I hope you are not imagining gold or diamonds when luxury carpets are discussed. When associated with carpets, the word "luxury" actually means "longer lasting, softer yarns, better stain resistance, and thicker constructions." There is no one universal style of luxury carpet, even though it is true that the very best are usually made of wool or plush fabric. Organic materials are a good choice, as they are very soft, comfortable, often highly durable, and hypoallergenic. The reasons they are more expensive are therefore understandable. Softer carpets furthermore tend to look more luxurious than other types. Take a look at a couple of beautiful luxury carpets for inspiration. Once you know what exactly you are looking for in a carpet, you might want to visit one of the following stores in Toronto, which will help you purchase your ideal luxury carpet.

The origins of this well-known company go all the way back to post World War I Paris, France. Léon Tenenbaum, the founder of this company, dreamt about providing people with "home furnishing items from around the world" and today we can say his dream was fulfilled successfully!
The road to where the company is today has not always been easy, however. During World War II, Léon and his family left their country and moved to Canada, where they settled down. In 1944, the family opened Elte and Sons on Bay Street in Toronto, and that was the beginning of their widespread recognition as "Canada's leading importer of fine quality rugs." In 2009, the company (now led by the fourth generation of Léon's family) celebrated its amazing 90th anniversary, and is as successful as ever today.
Visit ELTE's amazing showroom (one of the largest retail establishments in North America) and choose the carpet of your dreams. Natural carpets made of 100 per cent wool or an organic Persian rug could be a wonderful choice. If you truly want something unique, custom rugs are on offer as well. Use your imagination and ELTE will happily bring your vision to life. What else could you possibly wish for?

Kingsway Carpets & Blinds have been providing Torontonians with an amazing range of high-quality collections for their homes since 1997. Luxury wool carpets are just a small (yet very important) fraction of what one might find in this store. As mentioned above, wool is perhaps the best material for carpets, so there is no doubt in my mind that the one you choose will be of amazing quality. The specific style depends on your preferences, but Kingsway Carpets & Blinds has a number of "award-winning designs, diverse collections, remarkable value collections" on offer. Again, even custom designed rugs are available if you want a carpet that is uniquely yours. Pay a visit to this store and I am almost positive you will not leave without a gorgeous carpet — or even two!

The main priorities of this store are loyalty, honesty, and customer satisfaction. During the 17 years of its existence, it has proven to follow those three goals and has satisfied thousands of customers all over Toronto. Luxury Flooring Inc. offers hundreds of beautiful carpets in different styles and colours, and always helpful sales assistants will certainly help you choose the one that fits your needs best. To experience the most comfort, I would certainly consider one of the Saxony plush, velvet plush, or wool carpets available here. Selling carpets is not the only service Luxury Flooring Inc. offers. Customers can enjoy free under-padding, discounts for seniors, carpet repairs, free estimates, and next-day installation. All that for unbelievable prices and on a very professional level!
The sentence "Servicing the GTA for over 20 years" was the very first thing that caught my eye when I visited the website of Cadillac Carpet & Flooring. With a slogan like that, this company seems to want nothing more than to satisfy the flooring needs of its customers with high-quality products and services. If you need a new carpet, you do not even need to leave your home. Interestingly, Cadillac Carpet & Flooring provides Torontonians with "a simple, easy, and unique Shop-at-Home experience." Employees will bring samples to your home and there you can choose what colour or texture suits the style of your place the best. A number of ultra-luxurious wool and plush carpets are prepared just for you. Now this is what I call luxury!

Modern Weave, a contemporary rug boutique, is one of the most charming places I have ever seen in my life. You just have to visit! Due to its large collection of very original and modern designs, this place almost looks like an art gallery; it is hard to believe it really sells rugs. Every single carpet is artistic; you will have a very hard time choosing the best one. If none of them is quite ideal for you (very unlikely, in my opinion), it is possible to have a rug made according to your tastes. Do not hesitate to visit and "explore the infinite possibilities of contemporary rugs at Modern Weave."
