The Carpet is Beautiful!

This week four of six rooms and two staircases received carpeting.  The room carpets are facsimiles of original ingrain carpet from the Old Economy Village collection produced by the Langhorne Carpet Company of Penndel, Pennsylvania.  The stair carpets were woven by Family Heirloom Weavers of Red Lion, Pennsylvania.  Two more carpets are still at the mill and are slated to be installed at the end of October.

Ingrain carpets were woven in strips and sewn together by hand in the first half of the nineteenth century.  The patterns had to be matched carefully.  And yes, they had wall to wall carpeting then.


The Gfroerer Company of Cincinnati, Ohio installed the wall to wall carpet.
