Custom Stair Runners

Unique stairs runners make a boring staircase a focal point of your home.   The stairs shown above had a plain beige carpet before we put our touches to it.  For this set of curved stairs, we used input from our client along with tying in some continuity from the Nourison wool diamond pattern carpet that we installed in the media room.  Because the stair is curved, we had each step individually made so that the pattern in the border matched.

Need some help with your stairs?  Let us help.

Once again, Hemphill’s Rugs & Carpets has used their contacts worldwide to come up with something really spectacular!  Featured in this slide show are just a few examples of custom rug and wall to wall carpet products available from a resource in New Zealand.  In fact, we will be touring their facility in New Zealand later this year.  These designer quality products can be custom shaped, sized and colored.  Unique to this line is the use of bamboo in creating a few of these products.

The ordering process will include selecting the product.  Choose from short shags, core wrap yarns, long shags, stripes, etc.  Then you select your colors.  Choose from standard colors or we can submit a color (paint chips, fabrics, another carpet) and get a strike off for approval made.

And while a picture may be worth 1000 words, these photos can’t do these floorcoverings justice. The texture and feel cannot be conveyed in a photograph.

Wool For A Better World

It only takes one trip to Hemphill’s Rugs & Carpets to notice the vast range of colors, patterns and textures available in carpets. But the choices don’t end there; fiber is another important consideration. Carpets can be made from a number of different fibers, including nylon, acrylic, and polypropylene or a blend of two or more fibers. However, it is wool that sets the standard. Why? Because wool looks beautiful, feels incredible and ages gracefully while boasting superior performance and easy care properties.

Wool has been a part of human life for more than 12,000 years. Originally used to protect the body from heat and freezing temperatures, wool has played an important role in man’s battle against the elements. Its overall superiority stems from the complexity of its fiber, developed by evolution to protect sheep in all types of climatic conditions.

The same properties that make wool uniquely superior in clothing and blankets also make it the ultimate carpet fiber. Wool’s natural crimp gives carpets built-in resilience to crushing so they look good longer, while wool’s natural resistance to dirt and soiling makes for exceptionally easy maintenance. Wool is also naturally flame retardant and has excellent sound and heat insulating properties. As such, you will find wool carpets hard at work in residential as well as demanding commercial environments, such as hotels, restaurants, and transit systems where the volume of pedestrian traffic is punishing.

Aside from its many performance benefits, wool has incredible aesthetic appeal.

Wool manufacturers are some of the world’s most creative artisans, weaving and tufting the fiber into a wide array of captivating textures and patterns, including velvety cut-piles, friezes, boucles, shags, textured loops and Wiltons. Strikingly rich, saturated colors are another hallmark of wool. Its affinity for color makes it possible to create carpets and rugs in every shade imaginable.

Many people choose a neutral shade of carpet because it allows for greater flexibility, and also lends itself to layering by adding an accent or contrasting rug. However, saturated shades provide tremendous creative freedom. Dynamic colors create stunning effects and help to define areas of the home with exhilarating style. Wool carpets in exotic colors, like those featured above from Unique Carpets’ Couture Collection, can inspire one’s total interior design concept.

Buying Advise: Wool Carpet

Recyled wool carpet used in vineyards

Wool carpet is not only renewable and very durable, but some products are also low toxic and biodegradable. These are rare qualities in carpet considering most petrochemical-based carpets can include as many as 120 chemicals and be a primary source of indoor air quality problems. Natural wool is one of the most durable carpet materials, lasting 25 to 50 years.

Wool is a natural fiber that synthetics strive to emulate. Wool resists and releases soil more easily, has the greatest resilience, absorbs noise and noxious gases from the air, resists odor, and resists fire more than other fiber choices. Wool wears longer, insulates during the winter and summer, and is produced without hazardous chemicals. Wool is non-toxic, non-allergenic and will not support bacterial growth.

Because of the unique composition of the fibers, wool can absorb up to 30% of its own weight in water vapor regulating humidity. It can also absorb air contaminants such as formaldehyde and sulfur dioxide. Wool naturally sheds water and therefore most stains, while maintaining an excellent natural flame resistance without use of chemical treatments.

Wool is a completely natural and renewable product. Buying wool carpet also advances wool production which benefits local farmers.
