Recommendations for Attractive, Soundproof Flooring?

Q: I have a loft-style upstairs attic space with lots of light and soaring cathedral ceilings. Currently, it's a very large expanse of light wool carpet (sorry for the bad pic, none of the whole space was available) which has seen better days. As I also have tenants downstairs and wanted to be very sensitive to everyone's sense of privacy, it seems that hardwood floors are out of the question.

I've looked at cork flooring but it has either seemed too broken up for such a wide swath of space with the tile edges clearly visible or the colors are too retro 70's/80's for my taste:

What flooring material should I use that would at least be as sound dampening as the current carpet flooring and hopefully be much more attractive?
