These hand-knotted stairway runners were recently installed by us in a New Hope, Pennsylvania home as part of an ongoing redecorating project by the owners. The stairway configuration is common in homes. The required lengths for the runners to properly fit were non-standard however, which necessitated cutting the excess from the field of each rug and reattaching its border. This option was less costly, and achieved more expeditiously, than the alternative of commissioning a set of custom-made runners.

(which centers on the landing above.)

was cut and the border reattached. The workmanship
is excellent, and the repair is not apparent.

two runners are NOT sewn together.

(If the lower runner crossed the landing, it would pose
a trip hazard when descending the stairs.)

Handmade Living Room Rug From Brandon Oriental Rugs Used In A Doylestown, PA Existing Home Makeover Using Old and New Furnishings
Our client moved into her present home two years ago from a home with a much smaller living room. She chose to use her existing living room furnishings and supplement them with additional pieces to create a multi-use space. The rug selected balances and integrates the existing colors, patterns and textures of the fabrics and brings focus to the primary seating group.
