The Ants Plastic Rug 70x270cm was designed by Lina Rickardsson for the furniture label Pappelina.
As with other Pappelina rugs, this piece is made at a traditional weaving mill located in Sweden. Rickardsson is an accomplished designer and artist with a wide variety of skills. A busy mother, Rickardsson started by using her minimal spare time to weave bespoke rugs using traditional methods, leading to her experimenting with the Jacquard loom and the use of plastic instead of linen and cotton. Her innovative techniques enable her to forego regular linear designs, some of the hallmarks of her design being free forms and unique patterns.
The vibrantly stylish Ants Plastic Rug 70x270cm has an eye-catching repeating hexagonal pattern and chic hues that lend it the versatility to work anywhere in the home, including the hallway and living room. With generous dimensions of 70 x 270 cm, the rug is an ideal shape to break up negative space in lengthy hallways or to catch guests' attention in entrance areas. Thanks to its high-quality plastic construction, the rug can also be used outside on patios or terraces. The colourful accents and beautiful pattern elevate this rug from the ordinary.
