The Christmas tree rug in signature design is a long waited-for addition to the damask collection. The octagonal Christmas tree rug with the iconic motif from the CHRISTMAS TABLE CLOTH unites handicrafts, quality and nostalgia and celebrates the spirit of Christmas.
Bodil Bødtker-Næss, who was one the inner-circle of textile designers at Georg Jensen Damask in the 1970s, designed the motif. She was also responsible for the classic Easter design from the same period. The braided Christmas hearts and stylised spruce twigs have represented the quintessence of Christmas atmosphere for more than 40 years and the design is an essential part of Christmas in many Danish homes. The design for the Christmas tree rug is highlighted by the addition of a lovely star that is also part of the festive season.
The colour combination of Blue Gold was taken from the original design proposal from 1975, when the designer had envisioned a blue version of the design. It would be 40 years before this became a reality however. The subdued blue colour creates a modern look and makes the Christmas tree rug an elegant alternative for laying a classic Christmas rug in slightly more unconventional colours for the benefit of both current and future generations.
The CHRISTMAS design is also available as tablecloths, place mats and table runners.
