Collections
Heritage Rug Collection
The Lise Skjåk Bræk Heritage Rug Collection was designed exclusively for Nordic Home Interiors. In this collection Lise has combined the richness of tradtional Scandinavian color and design with the centuries-old art of hand-knotted carpets and rugs from Nepal. These rugs were inspired by folk-art from approximately 1650-1850 AD. Lise incorporates traditional and historically significant motifs found on woven textiles, embroidery, silver artifacts and wood carvings. The rugs coordinate with traditonal country antiques and reproduction furniture, but because of the simplicity of the designs they also complement nicely with the more modern minimalist style of today.
