In traditional living rooms, often centered around the TV, we've seen the rug placed in front of the sofa together with a coffee table. But this is beginning to change. Today, the sofa is not only for sitting on. When it's full of family and friends, we're happy to move onto the rug and use the sofa as back support.
This places new demands on the rug. ”It’s on its way to becoming a second sofa”, says designer Maja Ganszyniec. ”So it must be really cozy to sit and lie on while also being aesthetically pleasing”. Maja and her colleagues started to study different thicknesses and designs. ”I became quite the rug nerd”, says Maja enthusiastically, remembering a visit at a supplier in Belgium. ”My favorite meeting was when we were eight adults walking around in socks and sitting on various rug samples to find the one with the right feel”.
The work eventually led to VINDUM, with a thick, dense pile where features of differing colors create exciting effects. ”It’s kind of like when you gaze at a painting from various angles”, explains Maja. VINDUM has a more square shape than most other rugs. With the various sizes, you can easily find a perfect combination to suit your sofa. We hope it’ll become a loved feature in many homes. As a kind of ”cozy hub”. A nice and sound-absorbing place to gather all of your friends.
