When most Americans hear the words “home furnishings” and “Sweden” in the same vicinity, thoughts quickly turn to global retail giant IKEA. Now I like IKEA well enough, but if you want something Swedish and of superior quality – you need to find niche vendors – like the fine folks at Nordic Knots, who design and hand craft the most lovely rugs around.

About Nordic Knots: “We wanted to bring something from our home to every home and we realized that at the center for every beautiful Swedish home is a good rug. Founded by Swedish family trio Liza Laserow, Fabian Berglund and Felix Berglund who joined forces in 2016 to follow their true passion for entrepreneurship, design and their home country. Together, they have created a family business with one simple goal. Make a better rug, with better design at a better price.”

I like the simplicity of Nordic Knots’s Plus design (above right): “This contemporary design has a minimalist aesthetic with an artistic touch. A great complement to the rest of your décor. This rug is skillfully hand woven in 100% high quality New Zealand wool for a soft feel that will last a lifetime. It is woven straight through so you can use both sides of the rug, should you need to.”
