Design House Stockholm Dark Grey Basket Rug, designed by Lena Bergström
Lena Bergström draws inspiration from Norrland’s natural landscape and uses a combination of rug making techniques to accentuate the play of light and shadow in the Basket rug design.
The nuanced use of tonal yarn colours, along with multi-directional hand tufting, followed by carving of the wool pile, together create this beautifully textured handmade rug.
The gentle graphic pattern of the rug and the unusual edge shape (as well as its name) celebrates traditional Swedish basketry and hand-crafted birch bark baskets.
Hand tufted rug 100% wool pile, cotton backing.
Awarded rug of the year 2019 by Elle Decoration.
