The Arts & Crafts Home

Since the last Trades Awards, we have been involved in a large number of projects. 

Of particular note, is the flooring work we installed for a very special and unique property. Our clients’ ‘Arts & Crafts’ style home, located in the Ferryhill area, features traditional panelling and authentic fixtures and fittings. The owners of the property were looking for a stair runner and upper hallway carpet which would be in keeping with the traditional design and ethos of the Arts and Crafts movement.

Our Design Team looked for options outwith our current collection and sourced a bespoke herringbone flatweave from an archived collection. The carpet, from Roger Oates, was woven and hand-finished in the UK to order, using traditional techniques. 

Crafted from 100% wool, this product has the appearance and dexterity of fabric. As well as the unfamiliar material, the fitting method is also very different to conventional carpets. Our fitting team adopted traditional fitting methods and mastered the folding techniques required for an impeccable finish.

The end result is a stunning floor covering and staircase runner, which is highly sympathetic to the style of the home. The quality and craftsmanship is second to none and our customer was thrilled with the outcome.
