Coral

Our coral stair runners are exclusive from Louis de Poortere and are a prime example of stunning, contemporary design. Coming in six unique designs, our Coral range can combine perfectly with any interior setting, and we can also design bespoke rugs and carpet runners using this style.

Diamond

Quick to install and offering a classic, flatweave design, the Diamond range produces an effect that enhances both contemporary and traditional interiors. Made of pure wool and nylon, our Diamond stair runners are perfect for hallways as well as staircases.

From our San Lorenzo range, our Glasgow stair and carpet runners are designed with durability in mind. Designed with three-shot woven carpet and donning a Wilton weave, this carpet runner offers exceptional durability with beautiful colour. We offer the Glasgow range in various colours to suit any environment.

Items

From Brink and Campman comes our Items range. A collection of stair runners that are available in a range of designs and colours, these traditionally woven Axminster runners are manufactured in the Netherlands. Made from 80% pure wool and 20% polyamide for a classy, plush finish.

Jacob Grey

A truly elegant stair runner idea, Jacob Grey runners offer an exquisitely modern and timeless design for residential properties. We’d recommend adding stair rods and brackets to this design to truly emphasise the regality of this stair runner.

Missouri 

Our Missouri range offers a simple and contemporary solution to your staircases and hallways. Available in a range of colour options to help transform the interior of your property.

Our Plain range is arguably our most versatile category. With so many colours, size and materials to choose from, you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to redesigning your hallway and staircase.

Avenue

Our Avenue range also extends into our Contemporary category. Available in a range of stark, vibrant colours to dramatically enhance your home’s interior. Our Contemporary Avenue range is suitable for both stair runner ideas, hallways and rugs.

Basic 

Our Basic range is styling from Brink and Campman that offers strong, basic stair runner colours ideal for both domestic and commercial settings. 

Elysee
 

Made from 100% pure wool with a Wilton construction, the Elysee range is available in a number of classic designs to enhance your staircase, hallway or living room. This range is intended for heavy wear as well as offering a long-lasting, stunning design. 

If you are installing an Elysee design onto your stairs, you may not want to bind the ends (we typically do this with other stair runner options). However, we can help you choose the best design to ensure you’re happy with your staircase.

Hellas 

Renowned for being one of the most respected and iconic designer rug brands in Europe, our Hellas range has been hand-selected by Brink and Campman. The Hellas range is one of our most unique designs and is the highest quality runner material that money can buy. Available in three stunning colours, the Hellas range is a fantastic option for any home.

Karl

Another wonderful stair runner idea from Louis De Poortere. The Karl range features a stunning Jacquard Flatweave that comes in nine colours. This range can also be made into a bespoke rug if you’re looking to combine your stair runners with an entrance rug. Speak to our team for further information on this great option.

New Classics

Available in two widths: 57cm or 70cm, the New Classics range places a firm focus on vibrant red colours, ideal for hallway rugs, carpet or stair runner.

Kashmir 

Another from Brink and Campman, the Kashmir range features similar styling to the Emir range and is made using the same techniques and materials.

Konia

Made from 100% pure wool with a Wilton construction, the Konia range comes in two designs and a variety of colours. Reminiscent of old Victorian rugs, the Konia range combines elegance with durability and looks fantastic in any domestic setting.
