Our new category, Tapestry, just launched. It is a unique interpretation of rugs, dedicated for the walls, bridging the distinction between art and design. Tapestry continues and references our distinct world, where bohemian details, soft shapes, and bold textures come together to create a unique expression and identity. The tactile works mounted on the wall are inspired by rugs using traditional rug-making techniques. We wanted to explore how we could work with classic tapestries and textile art in a contemporary way to make it organic, bold, minimalistic, and three-dimensional. The vibrant wall pieces are made from natural materials, woven, and knotted by hand. Our new launch includes three pieces, and with more coming soon. The pieces are named T no.01, T no.2, and T no.3, and each has its own distinct expression – from no.01’s organic and playful shape to no.02’s square and bold minimalism to no.03’s vibrant irregularity with a contrast of natural black fibers. With Tapestry, we continue to honor traditional crafts and natural materials, while participating in a conversation on how we think about art and design: their contrasts and similarities and the interesting discoveries that happen in the exchange between them. With Tapestry, we’ve taken the rugs off the floor for them to become something else entirely.

Cappelen Dimyr creates custom rug for ‘Guldstolen’-nominated project
For Villa G, a private property in Ekerö, we created one of our first custom orders ever. The project is now nominated for Guldstolen 2021 in best interior design, a prize awarded by Architects Sweden — a collective trade union and professional organization for all architects in Sweden. At Cappelen Dimyr, we are excited to showcase one of our first custom rugs in this beautiful, sculptural, and artistic villa created by SAR/MSA. Villa G is a truly exceptional private property — and we are obviously rooting for it at the ceremony on April 7. The Cappelen Dimyr rug is a custom variation on our classic No. 2, adopting the same irregular pattern and creating a vivid and intriguing feel. It is a beautiful illustration of our custom projects, where we work closely with clients to create something unique for their spaces. @houseg_360

Camp Roig 31
Camp Roig 31 is a 600+ m2 townhouse with a sun-bathed 410 m2 courtyard overlooking the Alaró twin peaks and surroundings. The house has many antique charming details like two stone fireplaces and wooden carvings, but probably its main feature is the airy roofed terrace with arched openings to the private expansive backyard and mountain views.

Cappelen Dimyr at Mårten Pers Bo Österlen
The Southeast Swedish coastline is a place for inspiration. Some of Cappelen Dimyrs first pieces have been documented in an old refurbished barn at Mårten Pers Bo on Österlen.
The iconic no.01
No.01 is a true decorative statement piece, which works as a wall hanged object as well as a floor rug. It’s hand knotted in 100% natural and unbleached wool in a soft shell-white and sand colored backing. The curved triumph arc shape and variations in the high and low pile lengths creates a poetic and bohemian pattern. A long fringe edge elevates the end line and adds an arty and ethnic detail.
