Arty Abstract Area Rugs by Calle Henzel

 By Henzel rug collection

If there is one thing I love almost as much as great wallpaper, it’s great flooring. But by great I mean that it has to be really eye-catching, colourful and original. I think you’ll agree that these uebercool area rugs by Swedish designer Calle Henzel fit all these criteria. Bold, daring, contemporary, graphic, urban, and abstract, what is not to love about them? Henzel manages to capture a youth culture zeitgeist  through his collage-based images that present fragile and fluctuating notions of identity, ciphers, corrupted beauty and symbols.

Henzel Studio, located in Gothenburg on the southwest coast of Sweden, is one of the leading manufacturers of contemporary area rugs for the high-end  residential, contract and hospitality markets. Working in close collaboration with the world’s leading architects, interior designers and property developers, Henzel Studio has supplied public buildings, embassies, hotels, offices, retail chains, restaurants and private homes all over the world.

Made from the finest New Zealand wool, Henzel’s rugs are durable, comfortable, safe and resistant to dirt and crushing. They also offer noise insulation properties and reduce the impact of sound. Apparently the wool also absorbs contaminants in the air, improving the indoor air quality. And if those benefits aren’t enough to convince you…well you just have to look at them!

My favourites are without doubt the X Module System rugs. I love the playfulness of being able to make your own configuration by slotting them all together. What about you?
