This carpet is made by Masland, who puts it best: “A classic trellis pattern, Longfellow’s graceful details and watercolor shading invoke the charm of an English country estate. Made of a superior quality wool blend, Longfellow offers beauty and practicality in six delightful colorways.” We current have the Berry, Almond and Nickel available. The Garnet is currently out of stock with a 16 week lead time.
These treads are sold individually because they are made to order! We start with this awesome Masland 70/30 Wool Blended carpet, cut it down to the correct tread size, seam the boarders and then permanently attach our True Bullnose™ rigid edge. The standard size is made for a 10″ deep tread 27″ wide, but you can be upgraded to 31″ wide or 35″ wide — or we can make any custom size you may need! We also make matching rugs and runners!
As shown, the TRUE bullnose™ stair tread is permanently attached to a rigid bullnose piece so that when installed it will stay nicely wrapped around your stair tread. Other manufacturers use combinations of tape or glue, and hope that your tread will stay wrapped around the end of your stair tread. Not these. True Bullnose™ treads have a pressure sensitive adhesive that keeps the tread in place and a strong, rigid bullnose edge that keeps the wrap-around in place.
For the skeptics out there, we bring you the “Dangling Chap” – –
– – of course, just because Chap was foolish enough to hang from a True Bullnose™ tread to show that it will not lose its curl, Bullnose Treads™ are not to be use as lifting devices!! Ever!
