English Stair Rods – Our Heritage

Founded in 1986 by Eric Schubert, a specialist sheet metal tradesman with a passion for creating bespoke Victorian and Edwardian handicrafts. The first set of Carpet Rods were actually created by Eric for his home, everything from then on is history. Eric received order after order and until 1995 remained at the helm of the business. In 1995 his son took over the day to day running of the business, whilst Eric remained at the head of the manufacturing department, ensuring the superior quality and standards to which the company owed its success continued.

In 2007 Eric’s grandson also started work within the business, as the third generation times had certainly changed. The company was now able to stretch its reach and now offer its unique range of stair rods and carpet runners on-line.

The company holds dear its family business heritage and plans to stay true to the same principles and manufacturing techniques now 25 years old. Using a combination of traditional tools, techniques and superior quality materials, English Stair Rods create the finest stair accessories available.
