Browse our range of flatwoven and bespoke stair runner carpets

A striking statement in a contemporary setting, and the perfect complement to a period property, a stair runner, (known also as stair carpets), adds elegance and grandeur to your home. As well as its aesthetic appeal, it lends warmth and comfort to your stairwell, and makes wooden stairs safer and quieter to walk on. Our range includes the beautiful collections from Roger Oates and Fleetwood Fox. We also offer our own bespoke range of taped edged stair runner carpets which can be cut and shaped to your staircase and connecting landings.

We provide a free home survey and free delivery for all our stair runners across Surrey, Berkshire, Hampshire, London and the home counties. We are a recommended retail partner for Roger Oates and Fleetwood Fox. This means we are officially approved to supply and expertly fit your made to measure, award winning stair runners. 

Roger Oates

For more than a quarter of a century, the world’s finest stair runners have been designed and made in England by Roger Oates. They are made from British Cheviot wool, spun and dyed in Yorkshire, then flat-woven on specially-built looms to create a distinctive herringbone texture, and perfectly clean edges that do not require binding. Finally, each stair runner is meticulously being hand-finished at the company’s workshops in Herefordshire, to create a truly unique product blending traditional craftsmanship with today’s design and technology. 

The Roger Oates range now encompasses more than 100 designs, including bold striped borders, colour-on-colour weaves, detailed stripes-within-stripes and wide coloured bands. For example, take a look at three of the best sellers DartFitzroy and Flaxman. The traditional flat weave gives these stairs runners a remarkable suppleness, enabling a perfect fit around winders and other complex shapes, making them equally suitable for straight and winding staircases.

Bespoke Taped & Whipped

Our bespoke stair runner service allows you to create your own unique stair runner. First, select from our extensive range of broadloom carpets for the main runner. Next, choose from over 300 taping options for the border. The tape is carefully stitched to the edge once the carpet has been cut to size. Our expert fitters will tailor the carpet to suit your staircase following any curves and turns. Using a broadloom carpet allows you the option to continue the same carpet through landings and bedrooms. A bespoke stair runner allows you to continue the same style of taped runner into hallways, corridors and adjoining landings. We can also finish the edge with a matched whipped cotton edge, or piped taping. You can view our full gallery to stair runners on our Pinterest page.
