The rug is entirely made by hand. The special technique of hand-tufting in different directions enhances the three-dimensional feel of Basket. Several threads in different colours creates the desired lustre. The rug is then carefully cut by hand into a trompe l’oeil graphic pattern that pays homage to Swedish handicraft traditions such as birch bark baskets and rucksacks. Sharp angles and soft transitions play the roles in a shadow play that is both illusion and reality.

Awarded rug of the year 2019 by Elle Decoration.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS: Vacuum clean regularly to remove particles in the wool. Spots can be removed using a clean cloth with lukewarm water. Do not allow the wool to become soaked. We recommend using a qualified rug specialist for cleaning. Flat wash/flat dry.

Design House Stockholm is a publishing house for contemporary Scandinavian design, with products ranging from furniture to fashion, lighting, tabletop and limited studio editions. With the aim of enhancing everyday life, Design House Stockholm has been changing the way people think about their living and working space for many years.

They credit their success to the way they work; in an extensive network of more than 60 independent designers, in the same way publishing houses work with authors. They collaborate with both new, up-and-coming talent and established names.

Although the majority of their designers are from Scandinavia, Design House Stockholm work with designers from all over the world in order to find that special Scandinavian touch. Unlike many other companies, they don't try to force the fresh and free designs into a fixed production apparatus. Instead, they use their extensive networks to find the right kind of production facilities, at the same time as exploring new production methods. All this transforms ideas into real products.

Their collection of functional and aesthetically refined design products of timeless appeal ranges from tableware and lighting to furniture and textiles. Today their collection boldly ranges from the conceptual to arts and crafts-like pragmatism, from decoratively maximalist to utterly minimalist.
