HOME: WHERE THE HEART IS

SCANDINAVIAN FLAT-WEAVE RUGS - EXCLUSIVE TO ARTISAN FLOORING Artisan has a beautiful new collection of Scandinavian rugs that are perfect for creating that spring/summer vibe. While flat-woven rugs are not always associated with Scandinavia they have in fact been handmade in Sweden for centuries and were directly influenced by oriental rugs from the Ottoman Empire. Rug-making is now firmly established as an important Swedish cultural tradition. In the early Twentieth Century, many serious artists and acclaimed designers throughout Sweden were beginning to work in the field of decorative rugs, suddenly elevating the craft from traditional folk-art to a serious international phenomenon. Swedish rugs are often infused with design themes and motifs with features that are consistent with the artistic and cultural heritage of Sweden, and as a result they are an important expression of their folk art traditions. Available exclusively at Artisan Flooring, the rugs are constructed from wool, bamboo, silk, cotton and linen the texture is beautifully soft and subtle. In soft neutral tones these rugs are a very sophisticated option for the home. Artisan is a New Zealand-owned company run by innovative design enthusiasts servicing the needs of home owners, interior designers and architect. It offers a complete service and will project-manage your jobs from sourcing product through to complete installation.

The World Belongs to the Dissatisfied

Artisan has exclusive relationships with an incredible selection of international brands, including Florence Broadhurst and Jan Kath, in addition to collaborations with a number of designers and artists.
