UK: Stair Carpets: Stair Carpet Manufacturers & Suppliers
ABOUT STAIR CARPETS
Stair carpet is available for most types of carpet, including tufted carpets, and Axminster and Wilton. The stair carpet may be plain or patterned, but needs to be of good quality to resist the heavy staircase wear. Stair carpet is also available in natural materials including jute and sisal. Some firms specialise in the production of stair carpet (also known as stair runners). These stair carpets are often in striped designs which run vertically up the stairs, and may include borders and bound edgings. Numerous designs of brass, bronze and chrome stair carpet rods are also available. Leading UK suppliers of stair carpets are profiled below the panel of sponsored links.
LEADING STAIR CARPET MANUFACTURERS & SUPPLIERS
Roger Oates: Stair Carpets. Roger
Oates and his wife Fay have been designing and hand producing pure wool Venetian
flatweave rugs and stair runners for over twenty years. They operate from their
studio complex in Herefordshire, and also have a Chelsea showroom at Riley
Street, London SW1. The business started when Roger and Fay Oates discovered a
19th century flatweave fragment in the late 1980s, and set out to re-invent this
flooring. Designs are originated and coloured by Roger and Fay and the product
process is run by craftsmen who finish by hand. Roger Oates supplies stair
carpets in flatweave and also in Wilton carpet with cut and loop pile. Several
of the stair carpets have a complementary 'border' and 'ground' design, which
can be used together on staircases and landings. The stair carpet designs are
presented on the website in four categories: Red, Neutral & Black, Blue & Green,
and Multi & Bright. The Multi & Bright designs include many with narrow stripes
running vertically up the staircase.
