They work with anything, anywhere, quietly bringing soul and drama to a room.

Traditional or modern. It doesn’t matter.

I’ve been trying to source some as runners for our main stairs and cellar stairs. ┬áIt hasn’t been easy: No runner is long enough and narrow enough to fit a complete flight, so it’s about finding combinations that work together, fit together in size….and still make the heart sing.

The kilims still need to be fitted properly…but I think that’s best done once the floor is down (May 3) and possibly after all the furniture is down.
