Handmade rugs

A handmade Rug Collection at Swedish Granit. This rug collection is hand-knotted. A handmade rug is an investment in long traditions, craftsmanship with a long lifetime. 100% wool, 100% recycled PET or 100% jute. The PET rugs are also woven in two colours, which makes them reversible.

Simply beautiful 👏👏👏

Container living

Every time I drive past the airport, I see the huge container hangar where the containers are stacked on one another, in endless rows. It looks like an exciting landscape of orderly rows of giant iron boxes. I think it looks extremely appealing, can’t help it. Every time, the thought occurs, that I would like to live there … which impossible of course. At least right there. But it  is possible to live in a dumpster … or whatever name that is appropriate. They are suitable both as workplace, a home, storey building, kindergarten & so on. Or even a mobile home, why not!

Here are some great solutions that are interesting in many ways. The possibilities are endless & it shouldn’t be too expensive, for those interested. What do you think?
