"I found Creative Carpet and Rug to be customer oriented from the start.  The pictures and video were very helpful in making the decision. John is an artist! He takes great care with his work and delivers outstanding custom carpet runners. We were told by another carpet store that you can’t put a patterned runner on a curved staircase. That is because they don’t have John. He also cleaned up after himself completely which is rare these days. (click here to see this staircase) Thanks again and if you would like anyone making a decision to see our staircase just let me know."
--Best-Laura and Jim, Madison, CT

"We would like to say we were both incredibly pleased with not only the no-pressure sales help we got from Eileen but also the impeccable installation that John did on our runner. After doing a considerable amount of shopping we were fortunate enough to find out about Creative Rug. We found them to not only be extremely competitive with their pricing compared to the standard “super” stores, but their personal touch and assistance in the selection of the best pattern for our house was really quite unusual and very much appreciated. We give them our whole hearted recommendation!" --Nick & Arlene, Trumbull CT
