In 1963, Finn Juhl designed a series of characteristic circle patterns for the Danish company Vittrup Tæpper (Vittrup Rugs). However, the rugs didn’t make it into production at the time but were finally revived by House of Finn Juhl in 2015. House of Finn Juhl now introduces three rugs in natural, undyed hand-tufted wool. The three neutral versions stand in a calm and warm contrast to Finn Juhl’s daring furniture.
Finn Juhl’s original drawings of the circular patterns show different colour combinations – some are extremely colourful and striking, while others are neutral and calm in their expression. The natural rugs, which House of Finn Juhl are now bringing to life, are all monochrome and come in three gradients; ‘Chalk’, ‘Sandstone’ and ‘Clay’. The circular pattern is brought about by the difference in the height of the pile. The special technique is called Cut-Loop 3D and creates the optical illusion that the carpets are multicoloured. In reality, this is simply due to the fact that the wefts are seen from above and from the side. This weaving technique is not only elegant, but it also increases the durability of the rugs. Furthermore, the rugs come with a non-slip backside.
