Nordic Knots sets sights on custom window treatments

Light plays a pivotal role in Scandinavia. In the summer there is an abundance of it; in the winter it disappears rapidly. It was this duality that compelled Fabian Berglund and Liza Laserow, the husband-and-wife founders of Nordic Knots, to venture into curtains. Rugs have been the company’s raison d’être since the Stockholm atelier was established in 2016, but come September 12, Berglund and Laserow will roll out high quality yet reasonably priced curtains, another pivotal aspect of the home.

Like Nordic Knot rugs, these window treatments are designed to buoy spaces with warmth and tranquility, not to play a starring role. Woven from Indian wool, they are at once insulating and airy, grounding rooms with flowing pleat-adorned, double-width panels as they amplify soft light. Outfitted with a multifunctional band that can adapt to hooks, rails, and rods, the made-to-measure curtains are available in plenty fabric lengths. Just as the rugs do, the inaugural three muted colorways— Perfect White, Pale Sand, and Soft Gray—pull from the Scandinavian landscape.


As of September 12, Soane Britain’s stateside devotees can enjoy the label’s furniture, lighting, fabrics, and wallpaper at a new US flagship on Madison Avenue in New York.

A peek inside Soane Britain’s new Madison Avenue showroom

The elegant world of Soane Britain will get the New York limelight on September 12, when its first showroom in the city opens in a late-19th-century Neo-Georgian building on the corner of Madison Avenue and 65th Street. Organized as a sequence of rooms brimming with Soane designs and antiques, the experience begins on the fourth-floor lobby that combines a high gloss yellow ceiling with textured, woven walls. In the drawing room, Soane’s Bascule desk and Quiver Klismos chair mingle with Nureyev drink trolleys, while a 19th-century Mason’s Ironstone dinner service commands attention in the dining area. After ogling the kitchen’s custom Tambour cabinets and the bedroom’s four-poster done up in hangings with Adam Bray’s new geometric print, designers will hightail it to the fabric-and-wallpaper room to soak up inspiration for their upcoming projects.
