I love carpets. I am not ashamed. And even with all the wonderful patterns out there already, I still found myself missing a few which I consider to be absolute staples to any decorator’s collection. So, as necessity breeds invention, I decided to make some. And after a few weeks of sporadic bursts of creativity, I ended up with eight new carpets in a variety of patterns and textures. Carpet enthusiasts rejoice!

As always, these are completely seamless and much care and effort has gone into making them as high-quality and subtly-tiled as possible. No carpet samples were hurt in the making of these patterns.

One of my fellow creators *cough*janesamborski*cough* came up with the nifty idea of making carpets two-channeled with speculars, so I decided to do the same with mine, including the “comfy” carpet which I had previously uploaded with just the one channel. So now, you can strike just the right balance between color and shadow, and light colors such as white and cream are a cinch. (Don’t ya just hate how beiges always come out looking grey?) Also, with speculars, the carpets no longer have a flat look, but a slight glossy sheen that gives them more of a plush feel.

Well, enough of my rambling. Time to see for yourself! (Can you tell I’m happy with this set?)

Default colors are as shown in the corner swatches, and each pattern has two channels. They can all be found in-game under carpeting and rugs. (What, you were expecting masonry?)




The house I used in the shots below is actually a complete building, and is available to download through my profile page, if anyone’s interested.




All comments are greatly appreciated, so please feel free to leave one if you like what you see. Feedback is the highlight of my day!

Enjoy, everyone!
