Swedish producer Asplund are known for their ”friendly minimalism”. Focusing on high quality design by mainly Swedish designers, using natural materials like wool, silk and steel, and working with a colouring scheme of lovely muted pastels, Asplund 2014 is contemporary Scandi at its best. This Fall the carpet collection stands out as being both classic and innovative. Especially Jessica Signell Knutssons carpet Grid, with its handwoven wool base and knotted silk pattern. It’s tactile to the touch and beautiful to look at. Best carpet this year!
It is also nice to see the fine cabinets by Claesson, Koivisto, Rune and Anya Sebton/Eva Lilja Löwenhielm in new colours.
