Abstract

See full text

A floor covering including a carrier sheet having a first and second side, the first side being substantially covered in loops for attachment to a field of hooks covering a floor. The floor covering has a decorative inlay attached to the second side of the carrier sheet, and the decorative inlay has a visually distinct design. At least one fill piece is attached to the second side of the carrier sheet to fill the remaining exposed surface of the second side around the decorative inlay. The carrier sheet may be of a size and shape that, when placed onto the field of hooks with the decorative inlay and fill piece attached thereto, permits it to integrate with at least one decorative piece covering the remaining field of hooks, without the need for substantial cutting or trimming of the decorative piece.
