The best place is the web. You can see different styles of carpet bars or stair rods. Here are a couple of choices

Isn't it beautiful?!! I figured out where it's from... It's a Clarence House design called "Flowering Quince". I have a sample of the Red version on my wall now, trying to decide if it's right for my house! I've already ruled out the Brown

Floors are original to house (built in '33.) Assume they're oak? They've weathered to a nice patina.

No problem! I found a link for you for where to buy one like it:

Apparently, you can use them as stools.

the ceiling was benjamin moore swiss coffee and the stair runner was by ralph lauren. it's actually slightly striated (different shades of red) which adds a nice depth to it.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Blossoming walls and a red stair runner feel right for February, but are also perfectly pretty for all year long.
Alison Aves added this to Houzz Tour: It's A Bloomsbury Life
"An entry hall has an opportunity to set the tone for the whole house, and I wanted it to have a feeling of enchantment," Borgnes-Giramonti says. Mission accomplished. The wallpaper is Flowering Quince from Clarence House. "The sheep is one of my favorite possessions; I bought it at Moss in New York years ago. It fulfills my perennial fantasy of living deep in the heart of the English countryside and gazing onto a vast sward of green dotted with fluffy white sheep! Sometimes I think of my house as being like a cottage in the forest, only an inside-out one — here, the vines and thistles and animals are only visible once you enter."
Lily Gahagan added this to Thinking Spring: Blossoming Branches
This entrance feels warm and inviting done up in perpetually flowering wallpaper.
Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to Art: The Unexpected
At first glance, there seems to be nothing out of the ordinary about this lovely traditional entryway. Look closer. That is not the pet dog in the hall. It is a full-size sheep sculpture grazing on the hardwood. LOVE IT.
Grand entryways and entrances. An entryway that wows is an important part of a Southern home. It is a good spot to receive visitors. Be sure to leave out a bowl for calling cards.
In the world of pet statues, lambs are welcome to graze indoors. In fact, they don’t even need grass. They’ll eat air if that’s all you have. What a budget-friendly animal!
Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to How to Get Your Stair Runners Right
6. How should I attach the runner? You have two choices: staple the runner on or use rods. The stapling option is more secure; it is actually possible for a runner to slip from under the rods. You might like to choose a stapled option with rods as an added decorative feature. The rods look great in this traditional- style entry.
Becky Harris added this to Home Styles: New Traditional Design
The home's entryway makes a wowing first impression. Bedecking it in wallpaper with a bold, flowering quince pattern brought the traditional foyer up to date.

As for wallpaper - well, I wouldn't do it myself because it can date quickly and is awful to remove. But I like this cherry blossom one. The one you showed me is quite nice, but I wouldn't put semi-permanent flowers up in my home - I like something less feminine, more neutral. But that's personal taste of course. I also find that I'm not crazy about a lot of wallpapers where the pattern is really obvious. I like this one - ... and this one, definitely: (so fun!) ... and this one - the pattern's not too obvious, which i like: ... I kind of love this one, but the flag thing might bug you:
