‘Designed by Elena Manferdini, Monstera, Cedro and Heliconia make up the first of three “Acts” that form The Botanical Collection’

Dramatic florals are the focus of the latest rug designs to be released by Los Angeles brand Erik Lindström. Designed by Elena Manferdini, the three new rugs Monstera, Cedro and Heliconia make up the first of three ‘Acts’ that form The Botanical Collection. Each ‘Act’ is designed by a female artist, all three coming from different artistic backgrounds.

The Botanical Collection is ‘a celebration of the beauty and life-cycle of our planet’s flora’ and with three different perspectives on this concept, the collection is sure to offer a bouquet of florals to consider for an interior space.

Monstera, designed by Elena Manferdini for Lindström Rugs

Author of Act 1, Elena Manferdini, principal and owner of Atelier Manferdini, has twenty years of professional experience in design and education. Her work spans art, architecture, and industrial design, and her collaborations include Swarovski, Valentino, Alessi, Nike and BMW.

With bold compositions and featuring bright colours set against dark backgrounds, Manferdini’s floral designs offer a nod to the painting genre called ‘Natura Morta’ ( Italian for ‘Still Life’) and present an exercise in composition, colour and texture. Their still contemplation offers a window into another world created in hand-tufted loop pile.

With these three exuberant designs marking the start of The Botanical Collection, we cannot wait to see what Acts 2 and 3 will bring.
