Having worked in the carpet trade for over 25 years, few people are better able to identify the latest trends than Clay and Joe Miller, co-owners of the Carpetstore. The brothers are constantly looking to add to their portfolio, hence they are often the exclusive West London stockists for new ranges.

One of Clay’s personal favourites is made by Sedna and it has excellent green credentials. ‘The yarn is spun from abandoned fishing nets,’ he explains. ‘According to the manufacturer, nets comprise one-tenth of marine litter and trap tens of thousands of creatures every year. The carpet comes in a twist pile for stairs and living rooms and a Saxony, which is a luxurious deep pile for bedrooms. The quality is just amazing.’

In recent months the Carpetstore has also taken delivery of the Diamond carpet from Fibre – it is perfect for areas of heavy domestic use – and a herringbone pattern from Brockway which has matching soft loop pile and twist pile, meaning the same design can be fitted on the stairs and in the bedroom.

During the last lockdown, Clay and Joe took the opportunity to lay an Invictus vinyl floor in their showroom. ‘We had noticed that customers were starting to prefer vinyl tiles to wood and concrete flooring,’ says Clay. ‘Invictus’ wood, parquet and stone-look ranges are waterproof and extremely hard-wearing, and we wanted to showcase them in situ. In addition, we have begun stocking Distinctive Flooring vinyl tiles from Victoria: they are easy to clean, warm underfoot and there’s a fantastic choice of designs.’

The classic and contemporary carpets, made-to-measure bespoke rugs and stair runners are all guaranteed to be moth-free and Clay and Joe always use their own teams of expert fitters, who will also lay hardboard, ply and latex sub-floors and trim doors. Whatever your taste or budget, the Carpetstore will advise you on the best flooring solution for your home.
