Frieze carpet in Eagan living roomFrieze, also known as a modern version of shag, is a far cry from the long, tangly carpet that covered floors in the 60s and 70s. Homeowners in the greater Eagan area love frieze for its contemporary design, playful texture, and the fact that it doesn’t require a rake for cleaning! This much-evolved carpet is a durable flooring choice that can elevate the design and comfort of your home. Today, our carpet team at Floor Coverings International Dakota County is here to share the best 3 places in your home to have Frieze carpets installed.

Living Rooms

The most common application for frieze carpeting is in a living room where it provides a great balance between casual comfort and a sophisticated, modern design. Frieze is particularly useful in large spaces where traditional carpet materials will show seams. The added length of frieze’s fibers hides seams effortlessly and even your largest spaces can have beautiful wall-to-wall carpet. The fibers are also tough enough to hold up well in homes with pets and children, just know that more regular cleaning is required to keep your carpets dirt-free and looking their best.


We love the added softness frieze carpets provide in bedrooms. In the colder fall and winter months, frieze’s plush fibers are pleasing to sink your feet into first thing in the morning or after a long day’s work. Another benefit frieze provides in your bedroom is its durability. Compared to saxony or other carpets with a shorter pile, frieze holds up well under heavier furniture such as beds and dressers, and doesn’t require as frequent furniture rearrangements.
