Scandinavia is famed for its impeccable craftsmanship and ingenious approach to design. According to the northern philosophy, utilitarian objects should be practical, functional and beautiful but there is no point in overcomplicating the matter. Thus, Scandinavian aesthetics builds upon simple, geometric forms which tend to represent wild nature or bucolic countryside and exude a truly heartwarming appeal. This custom flat-woven runner is an excellent example of the Swedish way of thinking. It was thoroughly hand-knotted of the first-rate wool in accordance with old and refined techniques by a skilled artisan due to which it will be able to serve its owners for generations without any signs of wear. The only design are thick stripes of light slate gray hue sprinkled with tiny dots of a lighter shade against the off-white background. Such minimalism makes the runner absolutely versatile and ready to fit into all kinds of interior arrangements, from classic to contemporary. This custom Swedish-inspired runner will be perfect for staircases, corridors or halls where it can bring in a bit of Scandinavian freshness and charm.
