Scandinavian rug suppliers Nordic Knots Fabrizio Csiraghi is a revered interior designer from Paris. Together, they have created a line of hand-knotted ropes that are inspired by nature and the relationship between humans and it.
Blending Swedish and Parisian style codes, the collaboration is Nordic Rugs’ “most intricate and elevated collection to date,” and it also marks Casiraghi’s first-ever textile partnership. The team-up came to fruition after Nordic Knots’ co-founders, husband and wife Fabian Berglund and Liza Berglund Laserow, paid a visit to the highly-acclaimed Drouant restaurant in Paris, which was redesigned by Casiraghi.
“We admire his way of transforming spaces into a world that is so very ‘Fabrizio Casiraghi’ yet feel as if they have existed for a long time,” said Laserow in a statement. “There’s a sense of balance and the unexpected in his designs; his interiors are layered and curated, with just enough pieces to make them feel lived-in, but still modern and fresh.”
The collection moves away from geometric prints to a more figurative design. Each rug features large motifs in the middle. On three pieces, the collaborators spotlight the line’s main characters: the Archaeologist (the past), the Farmer (the present) and the Astronomer (the future). Sketched silhouettes in terracotta and verdant green, as well as sky blue, bring each persona to life.
The Nordic Knots x Fabrizio Casiraghi range will launch in October. Prices range between $2,395 and $6,295 USD. View the above gallery to see the full lineup.
