Our friends at Mjolk in Toronto, Juli and John Baker, introduced us to the colorblocked Totone rugs designed by Swedish architect Eero Koivisto of Claessen Koivisto Rune for Asplund a while back. Thanks a lot, you two! Now we’re coveting one for ourselves.

For ordering information, contact Mjolk or Asplund directly.
