Classically Chic Range of Hand Woven 100% Wool, Runners & Rugs
Luxury Flooring Designed, Woven & Hand Finished in the UK
At Harley Carpets, we offer a range of carefully chosen luxury flooring, which is as stunning as it is individual. This is perfectly demonstrated in our selection of Roger Oates runners and rugs, which are beautifying homes everywhere. Designed, woven and finished in the UK, Roger Oates luxury flooring products contain 100% wool, and are produced in limited numbers. They will raise the profile of any home whether contemporary or traditional, with a choice of colours and sizes to suit all décors and rooms.
A favourite option for discerning home-owners internationally, flooring products from Roger Oates have been providing exceptional good looks and practical functionality for over 20 years. This flooring was originally inspired by Roger and wife Fay’s discovery of a flatweave fragment from the 1980’s. They were motivated to work to reintroduce and reinvent the look, creating skilled craftsmen to produce the floor coverings, using authentic weaving techniques. The results speak for themselves and bring a chic classical style desired across Europe, Scandinavia, Australia and North America.
Striking Runners for Hallways, Straight or Winding Stairs and Landings
Runners from the Roger Oates collection will bring that special designer edge to your hall and staircase, while remaining inviting and welcoming. These runners have an intrinsic versatility, and are perfect for a variety of applications including straight or winding staircases. They have a unique and interesting texture and suppleness, and some are available with interesting border designs.
Bold and dramatic patterns, or subtle fine lines delight and can be edged with linen binding or a simple blind hem. These runners are the ideal way to give your hall, stairs and landing the ‘wow’ factor, and when it comes to making a great impression for guests, they are hard to beat! Runners professionally sewn together deliver the ultimate bespoke rugs for wider areas or can be used singly for narrower hallways. Colours range from relaxing and classy neutral tones, to dramatically vibrant shades blending perfectly into any home.

Luxurious Felted Mouflon Wool Rugs in Stunning Colours
Gorgeous rugs which are soft and indulgent underfoot are represented by the Roger Oates ‘Tapis d’Avignon’ range, created from heavily felted Mouflon wool. Skilfully hand made by combining individual pieces, joined with decorative stitching, these rugs use colours which compliment and contrast beautifully. A wide range of looks are possible with this flooring choice from temptingly tranquil and calming to dynamic and invigorating for a highly tailored result.

Specialist Weaving Process
Intricate weaving processes using specially adapted power driven, hand operated vintage ‘Hattersley’ looms produce the Roger Oates runner collection. A unique loom set up is required for each design to create the correct colours and structures. Although the set up is time consuming and also labour intensive, we are sure you will agree the finished article is well worth it.
