New York State of Mind

It’s that time of year again! From red, white, and blue in houses or stores to military appreciation. NYC has been the home for countless entrepreneurs and dreamers from the beginning of this country. That is a trademark of America, “A land where streets are made of Gold.” On the shore line, you will find Ellis Island, where millions of immigrants discovered NYC as a place of endless opportunities. The Meberg brothers saw an opportunity when they arrived to America- in which they founded Consolidated Carpet. Their dream grew and flourished with the help of New York City. Having the opportunity to create a company in one of the greatest cities and countries in the world is incredible. One of our recent installations was a pixilated map of Manhattan at the 53rd Street Public Library- Children’s Reading Room. Having an installation of one of our most loved cities, is nothing short of an honor. The design is hoped to be an inspiring and enjoyable space for the children!

2016 Starnet Design Awards Celebration

We are beyond proud to celebrate our Gold Medal Winner in the 2016 Starnet Design Awards’ Education Category. The New Jersey City University School of Business welcomed all contributors to their space to display the award winning space. CEO David Meberg and Account Executive Marc Weinshel represented Consolidated Carpet at the event along with representatives from Clarke Caton Hintz, Del-Sano Construction, Milliken, J&J, and the NJCU Faculty.

The event commenced with a tour of the facility beginning in the Skyline Room. This room has become a favorite for many due to the incredible view of the New York skyline. After the tour of the space, CEO David Meberg gave a congratulatory speech to all of the contributors. The Starnet Awards were then distributed and each participant were recognized.

Thank you to all who have invested their time and dedication to the success of this project! collage





GNYFC Scholarship Luncheon with our Consolidated Family



Taking that next step into college is an exciting yet stressful time for both the students and parents. Parents are faced with the increasing cost of college tuition. The Greater New York Floor Coverers Association has been able to help alleviate that cost for the past 32 years.  The Francis J.P. McHale Scholarship and the Greater New York Floor Coverers Association Scholarship were awarded to three well deserving graduates. Two of which, were child of our very own Consolidated Carpet associates.

This year, we could not ask for a better day to celebrate and award three outstanding students at the annual Greater New York Floor Coverers Association Luncheon on June 2, 2016. John Kirkwood has been an installer at Consolidated for 30 years. His son, Joseph, was the proud recipient of the 2016 Francis J.P. McHale Scholarship. Joseph will be starting his next chapter at James Madison University in the Fall.

Nickel John graciously accepted the GNYFC Scholarship while his mother, Amelia John, proudly watched from the audience. Amelia works in the accounting department at Consolidated and is excited for Nickel’s success and future at the NYC College of Technology.

Consolidated Carpet is confident that these winners will uphold their outstanding academics and community service throughout their college experience. We are honored to help encourage and support their journey!

Consolidated Carpet Hosts Company Volunteer Event

We are proud to announce the success of our first company volunteer event! Consolidated Carpet hosted two PB&J Sandwich Making Days with the help of St. Francis Food Pantries & Shelters. The PB&J Sandwich Making Days are one of the many events that St. Francis holds in the effort to alleviate the physical and emotional hunger of the less fortunate. St. Francis provides a network of services and programs that counsels, feeds, and clothes those in need.

Associates from the NY and NJ offices and warehouse gathered in both offices to make sandwiches for the Bed Stuy Campaign Against Hunger and the Hoboken Shelter. The volunteers made a total of 3,424 sandwiches. This was a new record for St. Francis and a successful first PB&J Sandwich Making event for Consolidated Carpet.

“Thank you to all who have participated in this great event and helped to feed thousands of hungry people. I am proud of our success and the contribution from all of the Consolidated Carpet associates,” CEO David Meberg said.

With cutting edge designs, innovative manufacturing processes, and a passion for sustainability, Mohawk Group is a great choice for a variety of commercial interior applications.

Street Thread Collection

One of Mohawk’s newest and most unique collections of carpet tile, Street Thread, takes urban design and puts in on the floor. With geometric and linear patterns reminiscent of graffiti, the 4 styles of the Street Thread Collection complement each other for a funky & fun installation. All constructed with Duracolor Premium Nylon, the styles each come in 8 colorways with a foundation of varying shades of gray highlighted by vibrant accent colors such as red, yellow, blue and magenta.

“Off The Wall” has a high-fashion geometric design compromised of small squares diagonally placed across each carpet tile. With linear striations, best suited as drop-in accents with “Off The Wall”, the” Pop Icon” style has a wonderful shading transition from neutral gray to exciting brights. “Super Fresh” has a curvy, circular pattern based off artwork by Queen Andrea, quoting lyrics from John Lennon’s “Imagine”. The last style in the Street Thread Collection, “Taped Off”,  has a stand-out linear pattern with varying thicknesses, mirroring the look of spray painting over tape.

Mohawk Group: Making A Difference

With company roots existing for over 150 years, Mohawk Group has positioned themselves to be one of the most community-involved carpet manufacturers around the world. The company manufactures products from post-consumer recycled materials, such as water bottles. A matter of fact, one of their recycling facilities “recycles 3 billion plastic bottles per year, the equivalent of 20 percent of all bottles in the domestic post-consumer market,” to be converted to Everstrand carpet. In 2001, Mohawk started “Specify For A  Cure“, a campaign to give back to Susan G. Komen For The Cure. When you specify 500 yards of carpet or more from any of the seven eligible Mohawk Group carpet collections or any Durkan print carpet, the company pledges to donate $.25 per square yard of carpet sold to Susan G. Komen. These community programs are just the beginning of many amazing environmental and community outreach programs sponsored by Mohawk Group. We encourage you to visit their website at to learn more about the amazing things this great manufacturer is doing!

INSTALL Warranty On Labor

install logo

At Consolidated Carpet, we are proud that all of our installers are INSTALL certified. INSTALL, the International Training and Standards Alliance, is a cooperative effort established by the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and union floor covering contractors, with the support of most major mills and flooring manufacturers. This certification assures our clients that the workforce on their jobsite has met the most stringent qualifications required in the industry.

As of 2013, INSTALL guarantees the work of its Certified Contractors. The two-year warranty is extended and free – covering commercial and residential installations of carpet, resilient and hardwood. Industries served include healthcare, education, hospitality, retail,residential, and many more. INSTALL’s Warranty is the first of its kind in the floorcovering industry. It is a third-party additional guarantee provided by the INSTALL Committee where only the best capitalized, most professional contractors in North America achieve the status of being an INSTALL Warranty Contractor – and therefore qualify to carry the Warranty on Labor.

Wondering what other benefits exist when using INSTALL Certified laborers? Check out this brief video to see why there is a difference!
