    Once you submit your order, it cannot be changed or canceled. We process orders very quickly, and once an order begins the fulfillment process we are unable to modify it. (Backorders that have not yet entered the fulfillment process may be canceled by contacting customer service @ (877)586-4771). We apologize for any inconvenience.

    When you place an order with one of our companies, the funds are reserved on your card; this is displayed on your account as a “pending” charge from The Annie Selke Companies. When the order is shipped, the reserve is canceled, and the final charge is assessed to your card from The Annie Selke Companies. If you have ordered from more than one of our companies, you will see multiple charges, equal to or less than the reserve, that correspond to each order.

    We carry a wide variety of products in many designs, materials, and shapes, but do not offer special sizing. For custom bedding, we recommend visiting an interior designer in your area.

    Yes, please visit our custom rugs section of the site. In addition, it may be possible to have a larger rug cut down to the size you need; contact a rug professional in your area for details before ordering.

    Our hooked and tufted rugs naturally lose a bit of fuzz (like dogs). This is normal — simply fetch a vacuum and groom away!

    Hooked rugs require occasional grooming to keep looking their best. From time to time, as a hooked rug settles, a stray loop of yarn may pop up. This is perfectly normal. Do not pull the loop; just trim it with scissors.

    You sure can! Visit our blog for complete how-to installation instructions, or consult a rug professional in your area.

    PET is an abbreviation for polyethylene terephthalate. It is a non-chemically-treated, recycled polyester that’s as earth-friendly as it is gorgeous. Our ultra-durable and easy-clean PET rugs have a soft, pliable texture that is often mistaken for wool, making them perfect for high-traffic areas indoors and out, and especially good in kids’ rooms, family rooms, and anywhere pets like to hang out.

    WARNING! This product can expose you to chemicals including formaldehyde, which are known to the State of California to cause cancer or birth defects or other reproductive harm. For more information go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov/furniture

  • Custom Rugs

    We offer free freight shipping on all custom area rugs.

    Because each rug is custom cut and bound after your order is placed, delivery times will vary. Shipping availability information is shown on the product description page of each rug.

    Retail orders over 200 sq. ft. ship with white glove delivery at no additional cost. Retail orders under 200 sq. ft. include free freight shipping.

    Yes, you will receive an email with tracking info when your custom rug ships.

    Unfortunately, custom items are not returnable.

    No. We are not able to change custom rug orders once they are placed.

    For best results, we recommend having a professional measure for your custom area rug. You may also want to consult our measuring guide. Please note that our custom area rugs are not intended to be used as wall-to-wall carpeting. Our custom area rugs have a 2-inch tolerance, meaning they may vary by up to +/-2 inches from the specified length and/or width.

    Unfortunately, no. Custom rugs are exluded from all promotions.

    For a variety of reasons, our custom area rugs have a 2-inch tolerance, meaning they may vary by up to +/-2 inches from the specified length and/or width. Sometimes, in order to balance the pattern, the rug will need to be cut slightly longer or slightly shorter than specified. Other times, the construction of the material requires it to be cut in a groove to avoid the possibility of the edges fraying with use. Naturally, we aim to get as close to the specified measurements as possible, but the final rug may differ as much as 2-inches in the specified length and/or width, so we try to be as up front and transparent about that as possible. Please note that our custom area rugs are not intended to be used as wall-to-wall carpeting.

    These are custom-cut area rugs, so loom size dictates the maximum size available. Because of the labor involved, we are not able to create custom rugs under 25 square feet.

    The minimum size for a custom area rug is 25sq.ft. The maximum width ranges from 13-15 feet and the maximum length is 30 feet.

    Each custom rug features an optional rug pad for an additional cost. We recommend adding a custom rug pad to protect your investment. Rug pads are important, and custom size rug pads are not sold separately. Please see the individual rug's product description page for the type of rug pad available.

    For rugs with attached rug pads, the attached padding is secured to the rug by the surged edges.

    No. Our custom area rugs are not intended to be used as wall-to-wall carpeting. Our custom area rugs have a 2-inch tolerance, meaning that the final rug may differ as much as 2-inches from the specified length and/or width.

    Care instructions vary by rug. Please see the individual rug's product description page for care instruction specifics.

    Care instructions for rugs with attached rug pads vary by rug. Please see the individual rug's product description page for specifics.

    Custom rugs are a great choice for stairs, and almost all of our custom rugs are suitable for stairs. The exceptions are Sadie, which is a high pile shag rug, and Fleck, which contains viscose. For custom stair runners, we recommend consulting a professional to measure for and install your runner. Every staircase is unique, and custom rugs are not returnable.

    For custom stair runners, we recommend consulting a professional. Every staircase is unique and custom rugs are not returnable. Many installers will include initial measuring in the installation price.

    Not at this time.

    All custom sized rugs will be finished with color-matched surging on all 4 sides.

    In most cases, we begin creating your custom area rug when your order is placed.

    Only if your order includes white glove delivery. Retail orders over 200 sq. ft. ship with white glove delivery at no additional cost. White glove delivery includes inside delivery and placement of your rug. Retail orders under 200 sq. ft. include free freight shipping, which does not include inside delivery.

    Occasionally, the ETA for your order may change, due to inventory or shipping changes.

    Some custom rugs include a latex backing, and if that's the case, the information will be notes on the individual rug's product description page.
