As handsome as it is functional, Rombo is the runner version from a series designed by Danish multidisciplinary studio MLR with a high expertise in textiles. Given its tight weave, the rug is characterized by its combination of wool and jute fibers that create a robust surface. With a small, distinctive rhombi pattern bordered at each end by straight lines to mimic the effect of fringe, the contrast of patterning and colorations lends added character.

“We wanted a challenge,” say husband and wife Mia and Torben Koed, founders of Copenhagen-based Woud, and they got one. Sitting around the dinner table a couple of years ago, they realized it was time to leverage their experience in private-label furniture and create something of their own. In just a few short years, they’ve masterminded one of the most influential Danish brands around.
Now adding accessories to the mix of furniture and lighting, Woud expands on the essential simplicity of Nordic design with an emphasis on finely crafted function and startlingly original form. Embracing upcoming design talents, both from Denmark and abroad, the couple is also keen on finding new materials that fit the Scandinavian tradition. Ultimately, they say, “We believe timeless design can express personalities, inspire people and create beautiful homes.”
