Yes - quite obviously they have used stair runners - a wonderful solution if that's how you find the right pattern. As for the bottom stair being left uncovered - a neat convention. I also love the stair rods.

Rugs Done Right
This staircase has two separate runners that appear to coordinate well, and were of a similar width. The installer might have selected to fold under the border on the end so as to create a more seamless look. Either option works well- it's just personal preference.
The style is a Kazak runner:

They are great hand knotted rugs that typically have vegetable dyes.

Unfortanately the information on where this runner was purchased was never made known to us. It was actaully found by an interior designer somewhere in Madison, WI and this designer actaully surged together two separate area rugs to make one large runner.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to How to Get Your Stair Runners Right
Children aren't the only reason you should consider using a stair runner on wood stairs. I will never forget how we removed worn carpeting from our wood stairs. To our dismay, we found that our older dog could no longer get up the stairs to our bedroom at night because he couldn't get a grip on the more slippery wooden stairs. He would cry at the bottom of the stairs wanting to be with us. Oddly enough, we did not install a stair runner; we began sleeping downstairs. That's just the weird kind of animal lovers we are. Anyway, having carpeting on your stairs makes them safer for your pets too.I hope you have enjoyed the tips and can use them to create a beautiful and safe staircase for your home. I always love to see how people have handled these issues themselves, so please feel free to upload photos of your stair runners below!More stair guides:10 High Designs for the HandrailCantilevered Stairs: Walking on AirArtful Stairs: Continuity in Steel
