Vintage Rag Rugs at Danish Country

Vintage Swedish Rag Rug

I’ve always had a soft spot for the unique handmade rag rugs I’ve come across in the more than 35 years I’ve been buying beautiful things for Danish Country’s clients in Denmark and Sweden.

I have always used them as bathmats, hall runners and bedroom rugs in my home; they’re easy to clean (just pop them in the machine!) and easy to love.

On our last buying trip in early March, we found a large selection of vintage rag rugs – all between 40 and 80 years old – that we just couldn’t pass by. Unusually, some come in matching or nearly matching pairs, which is exceedingly rare to find. They are not yet on the website so please feel free to have a look at the photos here or on our Instagram (@danishcountry) and get in touch if anything catches your eye.

Stay safe and thanks again for your support,
Jim Kilroy

New Year New Shipment

We’ve Just Unpacked Our Newest Shipment from Scandinavia

As we hurry to update the website with all of our beautiful new mid-century and antique arrivals, visit us in our Beacon Hill store and Newton warehouse for the first chance to view the new collection.

This shipment is especially rich with chests of drawers and expansion dining tables, plus we are already planning exciting projects — think leather piping and woolen grays — for dozens of stunning armchairs and dining chairs with our expert local upholsterers.

We have also just received new stock of our ever-popular lambswool throws in a huge range of colors, from deep mustard to pale pink.

Please note that we will be CLOSED in both locations on FRIDAY, JANUARY 25th, as we will be celebrating a very special family wedding. We will be open as normal on Saturday. Don’t hesitate to call with any questions and we look forward to seeing you soon.
