Rime is a woollen upholstery fabric designed by Åsa Pärson, which has a melange-like look when viewed from a distance. It is named to reflect the harmony of the two unicolours used in each of its colourways. Inspired by polonaise carpets from the 17th century, Rime is constructed with a satin weave. This gives it a tight, smooth and lustrous structure. Each of Rime’s colourways combines a clear tone with a shade. For some colourways, which combine similar tones, Rime appears unicoloured. For others, where there is stronger contrast, the structure of the textile emerges much more clearly. Åsa Pärson: ‘Rime is multifunctional. It has three quite different looks that depend on the level of contrast betweenthe two colours used in its construction - smart, happy or simply elegant.’
The palette for Rime comprises natural and earthy hues, as well as a few highlight colours. Due to the variety of its colourways Rime is very versatile. It is particularly well suited to offices and soft contract usage.
