Mohawk Smartstrand vs Smartstrand Silk

Posted by dekeoboe (My Page) on

I want to go with the Mohawk Smartstrand. I found a carpet I am interested in, Serenity or Contentment (same carpet different weight), but it is the Smartstrand Silk. I cannot figure out how to find a similar carpet in the plain Smartstrand line. The Mohawk customer service line is not helpful. And their website it terrible to navigate. I tried searching by color (Flaxen) but that didn't get me anywhere either.

I have been to my two local stores, one of which is where I found the Serenity/Contentment, but neither of them have a similar carpet in the Smartstrand line. Basically, I am looking for a multi-color (beiges) cut pile carpet. Any suggestions? I can try other stores, but they are all at least 45 minutes away and there is no guarantee they have what I am looking for. If I had a couple of names of lines to look at, I could try calling to see if they have them or getting one of the local stores to order me samples.

FYI, SmartStrand Silk is a premium soft carpet. SmartStrand carpet will not be AS soft as SmartStrand Silk carpet, but is still incredibly soft. Just a disclaimer lol

Serenity and Contentment are similar base, difference is that one has a heavier spec weight. I would try looking up fleck carpets like Longboat Key, Appalachian Trail &or Roswell Station, I think they will be similar to what you're looking for. Worth a shot!

RE: Mohawk Smartstrand vs Smartstrand Silk

Thanks for the suggestions. Appalachian Trail may work. The other two appear to be friezes, which are too long for me. That seems to be what I am running into, the fleck carpets are mainly friezes and it is difficult to find the ones that aren't friezes.
