Custom Runners for Halls and Stairs

Hemphill’s Rugs & Carpets can add some spice to a boring staircase or hallway with runners in a variety of materials. In the case of sisal or seagrass, we can apply specialty edge treatments such as leather, cotton, jute, linen or microfiber. Notice in the photo below that it was a “continuous” runner that we ran onto the landing onto the next flight of stairs.

Perhaps you have an extra wide set of stairs or hall. Hemphill’s Rugs & Carpets has a variety of sources to create the perfect size for your home. We can even add complimentary borders as shown in the photo below. We had this extra wide runner fabricated to warm up the marble floor in the entry and hall. This was created for one of our designer’s personal residence in Newport Beach.

Perhaps you have a curved staircase. Shown below is a rug that we had custom made for a client in Laguna Beach. The client had an oriental rug in the entry. We made a complimentary pattern and templated each stair. This allowed us to “pattern match” the runner for the curved stairs. The photo shows each individual piece spread out to create the curve.

Shown below is a custom designed runner for a curved stairway. The client, located in Corona del Mar, had a tapestry throw that inspired the border design. We also created a large coordinating area rug for the family room which incorporated the tapestry border design along with an interpretation of the wrought iron railing that was on the stairway and second floor balcony looking down below.
