In a textured mix between Scandinavian nature and urban life the designer stays true to his unique use of stripe patterns in a herringbone weave technique using all-natural wool and linen combined with the silky softness of undyed sheep’s fur. STOCKHOLM is inspired by the Stockholm archipelago and a summer evening’s raspberry red sunset over the rocks. The rug is woven in a herringbone pattern. Built up in stripes alternating between wool yarn in soft, muted colors with a dash of vivid pink and turquoise and non-dyed sheep fur.
VASA is the third exclusive luxury rug in the Lars Nilsson collection for Vandra Rugs.

Resulting in a playful summery rug with a both dark and light part with careful accents in soft as well as dark heathe
The composition in CATENA WOOL is built up in color blocks appearing to overlap each other, forming a stylistic chain. Again, aiming to disturb the inherent striped design of a woven rug. The pattern is strict and geometric. The colors of emerald, amethyst and gold are rich and muted at the same time.
