Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Christmas tree rug or nursery rug?

I recieved an email from Åhléns, a Swedish highstreet chain, with their new Christmas collection. I'm not one to decorate much for Christmas really, but I did like this rug they showed. It's supposed to be put under the Christmas tree, but I thought it might look nice in the nursery instead? It's made from wool felt, but it's not that "christmassy", don't you think? This rug is small enough (only 100 cm in diameter) to fit into Elvis' tiny room, and it's cheap, so I think I'll just buy it and see if it looks good...

    It's really pretty. I could see this used outside of Christmas time.

    Fin, men kanske inte tål att "gås på"?

    Cute! Not chistmassy at all, I would totally get it. I'm visiting Stockholm next week so maybe I'll pick it up myself...

    I have trouble matching my house to the red xmas stuff. I have a lot of pink at home and I cant get it to work. This might be the thing i need.

    Looks great! And even if it doesn't look like a X-mas rug, it's going to end up under my tree!

    I think it would be lovely attached to a slightly larger circle of off-white felted wool. Then it would be quite a robust little rug, too.

    Definitely not for christmas-tree use only! What a lovely shade of gray. It would be darling in a nursery.

  • Jessie says:

    This is gorgeous! Would like fabulous in a nursery! Do they ship to the UK do you think? The website isn't in English so I can't read it!

    Cussot, that's a good idea, I'll consider doing that!

    Jessie, sorry but they don't even have a Swedish webshop so I highly doubt they will ship to the UK.

    Is that the original color of the rug? It doesn't suit a Christmas tree if that's the case. I agree with your choice.

    I like it and I'm with you I can see it in other areas as well. In the nursery sounds nice and if it's too small maybe you can do more than one carpet. It covers your steps without taking over the entire room.

    Have a great weekend!

    It doesn't look Christmassy all on it's own, but I could see it mixed with other Christmas decor.
