We couldn’t wait to share this rather special installation that we recently completed in Richmond, Darlington. The Roger Oates range Fitzroy in Black is one of our favourites that couples the benefits of 100% wool with a classy design of a bold single repeat stripe combined with the signature Roger Oates herringbone texture. This cool black, white and grey stripe is a classic monochrome look and with the talents of our fitter David Wells looks outstanding in this modern home.
Roger Oates and Fay Morgan Oates first began designing and hand producing flatweave rugs and runners more than 25 years ago. The reinvention of the Venetian Flatweave process led to a series of creative experiments with colour, pattern and texture that now number more than 100 individual designs currently in production. It is a truly British product and has become a design classic, we’re proud to have furnished floors and stairs all across Yorkshire with Roger Oates products.
Their portfolio ranges from bold striped borders in a herringbone texture to detailed stripes-within-stripes or wide bands of colour; Stripes are endlessly versatile and provide the ultimate in understatement. We think this looks so smart and although this customer didn’t choose to, the addition of stairrods can enhance the look as featured here in an image from the Roger Oates website.
