In Stockholm I saw these Björk rugs and cushion at Design house Stockholm.I fell in love because of the leather edging in combination with the rough structure of the rug. Lena Bergström’s conviction is that a rug’s flat textile surface is just as natural in the home as stone and wood. “To me, the rugs are poetry, like a quiet whisper within the room.” 
“Björk is the Swedish word for birch, a tree that is found all over Sweden and is the symbol of Umeå, the town I grew up in,” adds Lena. “I’ve been inspired by the rough black and white trunk which has a strong graphical and unique structure. The leather edging alludes to the inside of the birch.”
