- Frieze, with longish fibers that are so tightly twisted they curl. It is excellent for less formal rooms, such as family and game areas. When the fibers are longer and straight, it becomes a shag, now available in a broad color palette. Both styles are considered high pile.
- Berber. This is a straight looped construction, with a low pile that has short, tightly woven fibers. This style is soft, and low pile rugs are somewhat easier to keep clean and more durable. You will often see low pile rugs in offices or other commercial facilities.
- Saxony is a popular cut pile. It’s neither a high nor low pile and comes in two versions: Straight Saxony, which is plush and has a soft, velvety feeling underfoot. It is excellent for formal rooms like the living area. Textured Saxony is patterned with often-twisted fibers; it is sometimes referred to as “trackless" because it won’t leave vacuum marks or footprints.
- Cut and loop. This is as it sounds, with both looped and cut fibers creating a pattern with a sculpted or marble-like texture. That’s the main appeal of this construction! The texture is a significant design trend these days, so the cut and loop rug works well with contemporary décor.
