Distinctive Venetian flatweave stair runners and rugs in 100% wool, woven and hand-finished in the UK. Signature stripes vary from bold borders to classic fine lines in an edited colour palette of sophisticated neutrals and vibrant brights. A selection of the runners has co-ordinating designs that link stairs and landings for an elegant look. Woven on traditional shuttle looms, an intrinsic suppleness and a natural selvedge edge makes flatweave the perfect upholstery for stairs. Hand-finished rugs and fitted wall-to-wall areas make a statement in every room. Designs come in three standard widths and as part of a bespoke design service, can be recoloured and woven narrower or wider to suit individual projects. Decorative stair rods in a variety of finishes can be used to add a finishing touch. Early 2022 sees the launch of a creative collaboration between Roger Oates Design and London-based design studio A Rum Fellow, with a collection celebrating eclectic colour and pattern at its core.
Striking as stair runners, these 100% wool narrow width flatweave runners can be joined to create bespoke, hand-finished rugs. Each rug is made to order combining a customer’s choice of designs and colours to create something unique. Bold stripes are dramatic, whilst fine lines create a subtle overall texture and pattern. Colours include elegant neutrals, vibrant brights and muted tones. Edges can be bound in a contrasting or tonal linen tape, or simply turned under for a contemporary look. For larger spaces, multiple widths can be joined and finished by hand for wall-to-wall floorcoverings. To maintain a high level of craftsmanship, all hand-sewing and finishing takes place in the Roger Oates Design Herefordshire workshop. Early 2022 sees the launch of a new creative collaboration between Roger Oates Design and London-based design studio A Rum Fellow, with a number of bold designs beautifully hand-joined to create striking area rugs.
A new Tufted Collection of rugs and runners reimagine the company’s signature stripes and iconic flatweave designs through new dimensions of texture. Tufted and hand-finished in Devon using 100% British blend wool in the company’s exclusive colour palette, beauty lies within the simplicity of designs with contrasting textures adding an element of surprise. In a subtle nod to their weaving heritage, stripes are still a key component of designs, whilst cut and loop textures and varying pile heights create pattern, depth and movement. Currently available in a selection of designs and colourways, a bespoke tufted offering will be available from mid-2022.
Tapis d’Avignon rugs are made from a beautifully soft, heavily felted Mouflon wool, with each rug cut and sewn by hand in the Roger Oates Design Herefordshire workshop. A combination of smaller, individual geometric pieces, available in a diverse collection of edited colours including eye-catching brights and muted neutrals, are joined and edged with a blanket stitch of a complementary tone to create a bespoke rug. Rugs can be re-sized and customised to suit any space or dimension of room. Alternatively, the design team will work with you to create something totally unique and entirely individual.
