I don't do this often but I had to take the time to recommend Locust Trading to anyone in the tri-county area who is looking for new flooring. We bought a house that needed all-new flooring and carpet, and I took a week visiting flooring sources in Murphy, Hayesville, etc. I decided to make the drive to Andrews and am so glad I did! Margo Locust was great to work with. She listened to what I was looking for and grasped it immediately - had well-priced selections for me to choose from and ordered samples of things she did not have on hand. The communication was great, delivery and installation were very timely and the workmanship of the installation was exceptional. I highly recommend them!

From two perspectives, truly beautiful rugs project thoughtfulness for your overall decor. First, they are exciting fashion accents, easily changed, just as your mood or the season changes.

For instant makeovers, add accessories,pillows and window treatments! Second, truly unique rugs, especially heirloom –– quality, inspire you to redesign a room or set the color palette for your whole home.

Inexpensive to collectible, there are rugs for everyone, fashioned in materials and textures to fit every lifestyle and budget. Such endless varieties also reflect so many moods, cultures and lifestyles ––urban, classic, country, Victorian, Old World, even the naturals inspired by Mother Nature.

Area rugs are helping to drive one of today’s top interior design trends –– texture. A rug’s texture isboth actual (comprising yarn, fiber and twist, plus shape) and visual (color and patterns), which add flexibility to your overall design. Rugs do more than protect the floor or create rich looking interest. They create a focal point, pulling together color, patterns and textures in your home.

One trendy technique is “layering.” It’s rug-on-rug or rug-on-carpet for that new focal point and an unexpected grand expression.

Use area rugs to pull together all your home fashion statements. Use them to connect spaces,transition from one room to another, mix-and match colors and patterns, frame an already exquisite entrance in porcelain or stone, embellish overlooked areas, or coordinate the palette of your stair landings whether in broadloom, dark or lightwoods.

Ask about the proper cushion (from non-slip to a luxury feel) for beneath your rugs. When rug shopping, be organized with paint chips, fabric swatches,etc. Coordinate on the front end of your design,and look for the styles that will be a finishing touch–– perhaps a keepsake.

June Construction Summary for Multi-Tainment Center

WORK: June brought completion of the roof system and the beginnings of metal panel cornice around the roof’s perimeter at the new Multi-Tainment Center at Harrah's Cherokee Casino Resort. (Harrah's Cherokee photo)

At the Multi-Tainment center at Harrah’s Cherokee, you’ll likely notice some big changes to the exterior of the building. June brought completion of the roof system and the beginnings of metal panel cornice around the roof’s perimeter.

What cannot be seen from the outside of the building, however, is the advanced stage of the interior work. The flooring contractor is working to install all flooring in both the upstairs and downstairs kitchen in preparation for the majority of impending equipment deliveries later this month. So far, the kitchen walk-in coolers are already in place on the north side of the building. Painters are also working to prime and first coat the walls.

A significant milestone in the interior construction is, of course, the installation of bowling lanes and equipment. In June, the specialty contractors completed all subsurface work and mounted all bowling equipment, putting this process ahead of schedule. Now, the contractors are taking the final steps in installing the lanes.

With the new facility housing two elevators, the crews are nearing completion of the kitchen elevator and are almost halfway through with the public transportation elevator.

July will be another busy month for the construction teams as they prepare for the arrival of kitchen equipment, casework for the bars, the stage as well as framing for booth seating for the new restaurant. In addition to the evolution of the interior, July will also bring more finishing touches to the exterior.

Harrah’s Cherokee


As of July 1, Locust Trading Company will be closing our location at 916 Main Street and Moving into 2 new locations! 1 will be located at 995 Main Street in the Ballroom building next to Andrews Journal and a bigger showroom in Cherokee on the reservation located at 87 Big Cove Road in the Chief Saunooke Trading Post Building. We look forward to continuing to serve the folks here in our beloved Andrews as well as over in Cherokee serving the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians. 05/17/2017
