Carpet poms are small, physical samples of colored carpet yarn or fibers. (The yarn and fabric industries also use poms to exemplify colors.) Carpet poms are of unique importance when we are designing custom carpet.
Neither digital colors (e.g., colors from a computer screen or mobile phone) nor paper prints accurately render colors as colors will actually appear once produced by a carpet mill. Color which is applied to a yarn reflects light differently than color which is applied to a paper. Therefore, poms offer the truest color rendering. Poms allow our clients to compare a carpet color to their upholstery fabrics and paint colors under anticipated lighting.
