Part of our premium wool collection of stair treads! An elegant but affordable alternative to a complete professional runner installation. The style is called Aurora and is part of Nourison’s Stardust Collection of Carpets.
Here is what Nourison says about this Style: “Launch a new era of decorating excitement with the luminous Stardust Collection. Wonderfully plush and lustrous, these superb contemporary broadlooms are truly out of this world! Choose from a galaxy of harmonic designs with random or repeating patterns, in a universally appealing spectrum of rich mineral neutrals. These exceptional Axminsters are woven on proprietary Nourison power looms, of the finest New Zealand Wool enhanced with nylon fibers for added durability and luster. Stargazing has never been more delightful.”
Here is how we do it:
We start with this awesome carpet, cut it down to the correct tread size, seam the boarders and then permanently attach our rigid edge.
The standard size is made for a 10″ deep tread 24″ wide, but you can upgrade to 27″ wide, 31″ wide or 35″ wide — or we can make any custom size you may need! (They are all made to cover 10″ deep stairs which are 1″ thick or less with a rounded front bullnose, but can be placed on stairs that are deeper or thinner — if you need a custom cut for shallower/deeper/wider stairs or have thicker stairs with a square-face, just let us know!)
As shown, the stair tread is permanently attached to a rigid bullnose piece so that when installed it will stay nicely wrapped around your stair tread. Other manufacturers use combinations of tape or glue, and hope that your tread will stay wrapped around the end of your stair tread. Not these. treads have a pressure sensitive adhesive that keeps the tread in place and a strong, rigid bullnose edge that keeps the wrap-around in place.

Wool textiles act as a natural air filter, trapping allergens such as dust and pollen and keeping them out of the breathing zone
Wool is flame resistant
Wool does not burn until its gets to 700 degrees celcius, even then it self extinguishes once the source of the fire is removed.
Wool purifies the air
Wool absorbs indoor contaminants and purifies the air you breathe of harmful gases, locking them away for up to 30 years.
Wool absorbs unwanted noise
Wool textiles absorb noise and create warmth making your home or office the perfect place for relaxation, concentration and play.
