Yes, it is carpet on teh stairs. In this case it was custom made with an integral border. A similar effect can be achieved with an applied canvaas, leather or fabric border. As with everythign using a skilled workroom will help you to avoid gheartache later.

Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to What's Hiding Under the Stairs
Create a bookworm's paradise. Built-in shelving under this circular staircase emphasizes its architecture and provides a handsome library for the homeowners.
Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to How to Get Your Stair Runners Right
If your look is more contemporary, then stapling is great. These have been stapled where the tread meets the riser for a crisp, clean look.
Shane D. Inman added this to Designer's Touch: 10 Luxurious Libraries
4. Library under the stairs. Use the wonderful space under your staircase as the perfect cozy library room. Add shelving, a comfortable bench and a reading lamp to create a reading hideaway.
