The Hyde Hall Stair Carpet

hydehall3

The Hyde Hall stair carpet which we wove this winter, is being installed by David and Charlene Hunt of the Vermont Rug Company today.

The aubergine color in the border brings out the mahogany stair rail and treads. The very fine nose of each tread is a detail that I hadn’t noticed until the carpet was installed.
This is a Damask Venetian Carpet, which is a structure mentioned in inventories but rarely found as surviving fragments. We have a small border piece from the early 19th century and only images of surviving centers. Together we made this Venetian Damask carpet for Hyde Hall.
