In the world of carpet, explains Dean Howell, president of Atlanta-based MODA Floors & Interiors, we are seeing far fewer shags and friezes and more patterned carpets. By using a technique that combines both loops and cut loops — hence the name "cut-and-loop carpet" — manufacturers can create a carpet with patterns that range from subtle to bold.

Of all the rooms in his condo, Chris splurged the most on his living room. While the majority of the budget went to covering the walls with 70 yards of $32-per-yard metallic grass cloth, he saved in other areas. The pendant light was picked up for $199 at CB2, the sofa was purchased from Macy's for $700, and the custom shag carpet was made from backroom remnants from a local carpet showroom.
To create more light in the space, the Good Bones team, Karen E. Laine and Mina Starsiak, added two new windows in the reclaimed wood accent wall. This not only gives the space a focal point, but also allows more natural light into the space, making it feel bright and open. To add to the elegant, industrial design the team was going for, they added black and white artwork, a metal headboard, brown bed linens and dark end tables and lamp shades. To tie the space together and give it a pop of color, a green shag carpet adds comfort to this elegant, industrial master bedroom.
