Lars has recently collaborated with Svenskt Tenn on a new fabrics and rug collection. For VANDRA RUGS Lars has designed the rug STOCKHOLM.
STOCKHOLM is a designers’ wool rug. Inspiration is from the Stockholm archipelago and a summer evenings’ 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 turquise and non-dyed sheep fur. The dash of color in the otherwise monochrome palette together with the fur creates a softness and playfulness to the otherwise strict design. Design by Lars Nilsson.
