Granada - It's Not Our Newest, But It's Newer
Granada 2189
Introduced just over a year ago, GRANADA has been an unqualified success, climbing to 4th in yardage sold in 2010 and still growing. So we've decided to expand the offerings and have added two new colors; Sierra Gold and Hazelnut, which offer warmth and expanded viability to the line. Granada's growth has been based on exceptional aesthetics enhanced by pure New Zealand Wool and a wholesale price of less than twenty dollars a yard, making it attractive to a large audience. Along those lines, it joins a growing family of high-styled, low-priced quality wool carpets from Unique.

Lights, Cameras, Carpets...
Among our more recent celebrity installations include the homes "Two and a half Men" star Charlie Sheen who selected our luxurious Moon Shadows for his Los Angeles residence. "The Price Is Right" host Drew Carrie chose to do a custom tailored Shagtastic area rug for his Los Angeles home, and "The Apprentice" winner and E-News Anchor couple Bill and Giuliana Rancic selected our clean and contemporary Hyde Park and our classic sisal San Remo for their Chicago residence. Look for these styles underfoot on their own series on the Style Network.

Vacuum Recommendation
Sanitaire by Electrolux
The following appears on our price list, web site and is part of a consumer information sheet included in every roll we ship:

The use of a Dyson vacuum will damage carpet. No performance related claims will be honored by Unique Carpets Ltd. where one has been used

Most of the major carpet care professionals are a little nervous about calling out Dyson by name so they recommend canister-type suction only vacuums for loop-pile carpets. They're great for carpet that hasn't already been damaged by improper maintenance but they don't help groom carpet which can often help eliminate fuzzing that may have already occurred. That's why we specifically recommend a Sanitaire vacuum (model SC888) by Electrolux. It's an affordable upright with rotating brushes that are soft enough that they won't damage carpet. It provides exceptional cleaning AND grooming. It also has a manually adjustable head that allows it to be set specifically to the desired height. They can be purchased on-line from any number of sources or a local dealer can be found through their website at
Going Up? 
By now were certain this comes as no surprise: Prices are going up. Raw material costs have increased on virtually every component of carpet manufacture and we must adjust our prices accordingly. We'll honor existing prices for all orders placed for immediate shipment through the close of the business day Monday Feb 28th. Thereafter new prices will apply. Those prices will be forwarded in the next few weeks. In the meantime, if you have orders pending, now would be a good time to place them.
got specials?
Don't forget to check our Web site for specials. Our list of offerings is being updated regularly. New this month is Rhodes; a premium quality wool broadloom imported from Belgium at a not too premium price. As with all Unique specials, it's available in the exact yardage you require.
