Swedish flooring brand Bolon will unveil a new book and new shape of flooring tile at next month’s edition of the Salone del Mobile during Milan Design Week.

Although founded in 1949, 2013 marks the sister’s 10th year anniversary since they took over Bolon and transformed it from a traditional weaving mill into a global design brand. Annica and Marie Eklund are the third generation to run the family-owned company, which is headquartered in Ulricehamn, Sweden.

About the ManufacturerBolon is a third-generation manufacturer of fine textiles and woven flooring. True to the company’s antecedents—back in 1949, founder Nils-Erik Eklund employed textile waste from a neighbouring factory to create woven rag rugs—the company incorporates innovations in materials to enhance sustainability and increase aesthetic appeal. In fact, the company name is a hybrid of the Swedish words for cotton and nylon. This pursuit of innovation extends to Bolon’s design and style as the company has embraced an aesthetic creativity that has made a Bolon floor a signature item—“floors that are a palette of innovative opportunities rather than merely a passive surface beneath our feet.”
