Top Three Installations in September

September was a busy month for us! We had many installations and deliveries that were all fun and unique. 

If you’re new here, we feature a “Transformation Tuesday” project each week on our social media. We share a little background information about the project – location, if there is a designer attached to the project, and if there is a reason behind why a specific material was selected. The idea is to provide the story of “before” the stair runner and then showcase the “after” photographs with the runner installed. 

We’ve chosen three of September’s top stair runner or area rug  transformations to share with readers. Let us know what you think about them!

Grand Entrance in Belmont, MA

For this project, the homeowner worked with interior designer Sarah Hollingsworth Design. If you don’t know already, Sarah is our in-house designer, but she also has her own business outside The Carpet Workroom. This homeowner bought their beautiful home within the past year and has made some major interior upgrades in that time. Those upgrades include a new stair runner, family room area rug, dining room area rug, and more!


This staircase is part of an open grand entrance and features a large, second-floor hallway.

The material selected is called “Tempe”’ and comes in several color ways. The color selected for this project is “Cold Springs.” This 16’-by-4′ wool product is a great option for homes with high traffic, kids, and pets. It’s also part of our roll special, so if you love this style and are looking to save a few pennies, this style might be for you!

For the family room, Sarah had picked out a soft cut/loop pile carpet with hints of blues. To make the area rug more formal, we added a wide binding with a 2″ face reveal. Let us know what you think of the after photos seen below. 


Modern Farmhouse in New Preston, CT

We recently added “Ticking Stripe” in the color “Tuxedo” to our roll specials. This client worked with an interior designer based in California . “Ticking Stripe” has a distinctive design, making it stand out from other styles. The ivory and black ticking stripe looks great in this older Connecticut home. They decided to have the runner flow up the main stairs into the large hallway space, then down the back stairs. See the photos below!


If you love this style as much as we do, feel free to reach out to inquire about a project! Our “Ticking Stripe Tuxedo” is discounted which is something everyone loves to hear. This product is 100% wool and considered a flat-woven style.


Crazy for Plaid in Medfield, MA

The third transformation project for this month is a series of plaid stair runners for designer Kelly McGuill’s client in Medfield, MA. The style seen here is a popular plaid style we have installed numerous times. It is hard to tell from the photos, but the dark stripe is a navy blue color. Below are photos from before the runner was installed to give an idea of what the space initially looked like. 

Here are a few after photos!
