NEW YORK -- Carpet One and Liz Claiborne Inc. have established an agreement to produce a new flooring line under the Liz Claiborne brand name.

The new flooring collection will offer a large number of coordinated flooring choices including carpet, vinyl, wood, laminate, ceramic tiles, and area rugs.

Liz Claiborne Flooring will feature a color-matching system that allows consumers to bring fabric, paint and other color samples to Carpet One so that in-store designers and associates can help coordinate the flooring.

"In Carpet One, we have a highly regarded partner who is a leader in the flooring industry," said Barbara J. Friedman, president of Liz Claiborne Licensing. "We are looking forward to working together to create and grow this business."

Liz Claiborne Flooring is slated to appear in Carpet One stores early next year.
