Pet ownership has displayed a consistent upward trend over more than two decades. In fact, more than 68% of all U.S. households now include a pet as a member of the family, according to the American Pet Products Association’s 2017-2018 National Pet Owners Survey. Most of those households, 48%, are dog-friendly, with cats in second place at 38%. Answering that call of the wild, Anderson Tuftex unveils Unleashed—a pet-friendly flooring collection that features beautiful soft surface patterns that are paired with sawn-face and distressed white oak engineered wood floors.
“We did a lot of research and found there is a need for that pet-friendly carpet with a durable story,” said Amelia Tritico, manager-design and innovation, Anderson Tuftex. “We’ve had our Stainmaster Pet Protect collection for a while, since 2014, and we wanted to bring it to life again in a more design-centric way.”
