    Colour aside, a Saxony carpet is almost never out of style. It’s a classic look that can work well for both formal and casual settings. When selected properly according to the usage conditions, it can be very durable.

    It’s perfect in living rooms and dining rooms and pairs great with traditional interiors by adding a distinctive elegance to a space. And of course, you can’t beat it’s luxurious soft and smooth surface!


    The main disadvantages of Saxony carpet have to do with aesthetics and quality issues. Aesthetically, people who don’t like saxonies don’t like them because they consider them to be boring and lacking in personality. It’s hard to argue with this; saxonies are designed to blend into the background, much like elevator music. If you’re looking to stand out, you won’t do it with this style."

    "Hi Catherine, In regards to a saxony carpet they look very nice for a short time in my view. Any high pile carpet will flatten over time.
    My opinion would be to go for a nice dense twist with a tight pile.
    I hope this helps and answers the question
    Regards Simon M"
