Distinct beautiful stair runners
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, Fleetwood Fox and Off The Loom. 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.
Made from British Cheviot wool, spun and dyed in Yorkshire, then flat-woven on specially-built looms to create a distinctive herringbone texture with perfectly clean edges that do not require binding.
Each and every Fleetwood Fox runner is woven to order which allows a certain level of customisation for width and colour.
Taped & Whipped

Our range of stair rods include various styles of finials such as acorn, ball, and acorn. Qualities vary from our Jubilee range through to our Premier Collection with options for every budget.
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 equally suitable for straight and winding staircases.
The Dart range of stair runners offers a choice of six striking colourways to complement your décor. Each design features the signature Roger Oates herringbone pattern, bordered by a strong coloured stripe.
The Fitzroy perfectly demonstrates why Roger Oates stair runners are the most recognisable and sought-after in the world today. Made from 100% British Cheviot wool, spun and dyed in Yorkshire.
Classic stripe borders and signature herringbone texture, Flaxman stair runners are unmistakeably part of the world-renowned Roger Oates collection. Made from 100% British wool.
Dart - Persimmon
Dart combines the signature Roger Oates herringbone pattern with a narrow coloured border. Available in a choice of five colourways and two widths, all made from 100% wool.
Fleetwood Fox produce unique, stylish flatweave stair runner carpets. The distinctive designs include bold stripes, herringbone and striking geometric patterns. The collection are made from 100% beautiful hard wearing wool that is spun and dyed in Yorkshire and woven on traditional narrow looms in Somerset. The extensive range is woven to order so allows for a high degree of customization without surcharges. We are a Preferred Retail partner for Fleetwood Fox and our expert fitters are fully trained in handling and installing these beautiful artisan stair runners.
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.
