A modern design that takes influence from the past – the Fruit range of table runners.

Designed by Swahn, Björklund & Forthmeijer and manufactured in Sweden in 100 per cent cotton, the Fruit table runners are a modern-day interpretation of Swedish textile designs from the late 50s and early 60s, using images of sliced fruit (hence the name).

Three colours schemes are available – black/grey, olive/red and lime/blue (pictured above), all retailing for £14.
