Langhorne in "House of Cards"

Have you heard about House of Cards, the primetime show everyone is raving about? It has won multiple Golden Globe awards and primetime Emmy awards.  If you haven’t gotten the chance to see this show, you have to check it out. The main character strives to gain status after he is passed over for the position of Secretary of State.  The online-only television series plays on the ruthlessness and manipulation in the political scene on the path to power and perfectly satiates your appetite for drama.  I will leave it at that so I don’t give anything away if you have not seen it. 

Here at Langhorne, we are extremely excited and honored to announce that one of our carpets is being featured in the third season of this popular show.  PR Newswire got a quote from our president Bill Morrow that sums it up perfectly: "Our 19th century Jacquard-based style of carpet making – in which the elegant woven design is guided by a deck of hand-punched cards (Jacquards). The five-color wool carpet border is a superb reproduction that is exactly what the Set Decorator Tiffany Zappulla was looking for.” You can read the article here.

Langhorne's specially woven carpet for House of Cards
Our custom carpets do not only appear in fictional political scenes on tv.  They also appear in real politicians’ homes and workplaces, including the White House, as well as several celebrities’ homes, such as Michael Jackson.  Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick, of the eighth district of Pennsylvania, was actually able to personally witness the making of this very carpet to be in House of Cards in our Philadelphia factory. 


We pride ourselves in being able to make each carpet perfect in the eyes of our customers down to the last seam whether it be a completely original design or a reproduction needing to be brought back to life.  We accept nothing but the best quality to cross from our factory to consumption with a goal of always leaving our customers with smiles on their faces.
