Paul D'Amico - Period Design
I would like my home to have these geometric runners but understand the reservations hereby mentioned. On the other hand, they have one major advantage - noise reduction. This is particularly useful In cities like London where houses have been divided into flats. The noise of steps is quite piercing. The hollywood style is certainly a safer bet as mentioned by Tenant Proof. Concerning the Geometric pattern and its destabilising effect on our senses I just need to try but I haven't come across one. Like Rachel Grace I like them and will pursue the topic.

Be careful with certain geometric patterns on curved stairs. The pattern will not match where the rise meets the run. Our showroom has most of these patterns in our collection. Most are broadloom carpet that we fabricate into runners for stairs. Personally, I think an interesting carpet makes a boring stair case create a nice statement in a home.
