Taking quality and style to a higher level

A striking statement in a contemporary setting, and the perfect complement to a period property, a stair runner 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.

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 Dart, Fitzroy 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 suitable for almost any staircase, whether a straight flight or winding.
