Roll Out the Green Carpet…

The carpet for the Architectural Digest Greenroom is by Karastan. Of all of the carpet manufacturers, Karastan is one of the most environmentally conscious; its parent company Mohawk has made huge efforts in this area and interestingly enough, today they are the largest recycler of plastic bottles in America!

The carpet I selected for the AD Greenroom is made of 100% New Zealand wool and will be made of a very tight weave. Tight-weave carpeting is the more “green” way to go (versus a looser weave or plush carpet) because over time, it will wear much longer and won’t need to be replaced so soon. Because we are keeping the Greenroom green in color as well as being “green,” we selected a carpet called “Woolcheck Naturals“ in a wonderful shade called “Aspen Mist.” Here’s what the carpet looks like:
