For those who want the appearance of a
wooden floor, but the luxurious warmth of
carpet under their bare feet, there has
until now been no middle ground.
Deep Pile Distressed Durango, is a carpet
that takes the form of a series of
individual narrow strips, woven to
resemble the wooden
finish of your
choice. A randomising weaving algorithm
ensures that no two strips are the same,
by creating the infinite variations of the
whirls and knots which characterise
Just found this.....
Remember where you saw it first. Not quite as good as mine, as these are all the same. [xenzag, Mar 04 2010]
||+ hmm, vacuum or floor buffer?
||I thought woven & deep pile were mutually exclusive. Or an oxymoron. Or was that anachronistic? I forget. I guess what I mean is how can it look like wood when the carpet fibers are 2 inches long? Level-loop, I can understand, but deep pile? That's a shaggy story, xenzag.
||How can it look like wood? - well it's a
bit technical, but each strand has colour
variations on its shaft, so that if
combed over in groups, the hue is
to a greater or lesser degree. The same
technique could probably be used to
create a wooden hair style.
||I disagree... in my idea each strand is individually stained all the way down as detailed in my annotation. Each one of my Deep Piles would be unique, just like real wood. Swiss's is just a mass production, like wall-paper, only for a floor.
||I had already thought of the "shallow" version that Swiss describes, but considered it to be too simplex and not in keeping with the spirit of the Halfbakery.
||so... do I bun this or the <link> ?
