Colony Rug Company Goes to England!: Mission Accomplished!

Posted in Blog

In August 2012, Justin, Shane and Greg eagerly embarked on their 12 day journey to England. They faced the challenge of completing the fabrication and installation of rugs for 20+ rooms in this spectacular home. They each worked long hours for 10 days fabricating, tacking and installing. They began by setting up shop behind the grand staircase. The installation of this incredible custom carpet for the main staircase and upper hall, bound with wide linen and accessorized with nail heads, took 3 days to complete. One of these days was completely devoted to the first three stairs.



Once it was installed, they laid the template for the “dragon’s tail” at the foot of the staircase.

They precisely cut it and then applied the binding and nail heads to line up perfectly with the carpet on the stairs!

They then went on to install the custom carpet on the three sets of service staircases and lay all 20+ area rugs in almost every room of the home!
