Customer had a challenge and two manners in which to solve the challenge.  Her first two steps were “pie” shaped and she was being told that they could not be done with an oriental stair runner. She researched and found The Rug Depot.  We discussed the options and I reinforced that we could certainly fabricate the material to turn [...]

Take a stair runner and accomodate turned stairs
My customer called to have a runner fabricated to accommodate stairs that had two pie shaped steps in the middle of the run of stairs.

Measurements were taken and templates were [...]

The stairs had a 90 degree turn that led to two more stairs, but the customer only wanted to cover the straight set of steps. I strongly recommended that Priscilla cover all the steps & the landing, for it would look awkward that the entire stairs were not [...]

Installation with a mitre using a non symmetrical pattern
Our customer loved the Dynamic Radiance 43003-6434 pattern.  Other rug companies indicated that the actual miter could not be done with this type of pattern. There are 7 steps up to a 90 degree landing and then they turn and go up 6 more steps.  Our installer plotted out the pattern to ensure the best pattern match for the landing.  The insta [...]
