Plush carpet, with it's modern offshoot, the "trackless", accounts for a very large part of today's carpet sales. Modern stain resistance, and wearability, make this carpet a very good choice for your home.
Plush carpet has a pile that is lightly twisted and that generally has a uniform color. Plush carpet has more tip definition than velvets. They are softer and more level than textures. This type of carpet is ideal for formal areas (such as formal living rooms and master bedrooms) because of its luxurious appearance. Plushes show every footprint and vacuum-cleaner mark.
