installing stairway carpet in Arts& Crafts house

Posted by Harris on January 17th, 2000 02:06 PM

A few months ago we purchased a house circa 1914. I would like to install a carpet strip in the center of the wooden stairs that lead to the second floor. An interior designer who specializes in the period said I should find brass rods (or replicas) from the period that go where the bottom of the riser meets the back of the tread, and then under the lip of the front of the treads. Do you know where I can find the hardware I'll need? She suggested antique hardware catalogues. Any tips re: installation? Thanks, HS
