SPOTLIGHT ON WOODNOTES

September 14, 2017

This week we would like to take a moment to shine a spotlight on one of our most versatile manufacturers, Woodnotes. Founded in 1987 by Ritva and Mikko Puotila, this family-owned Finnish company produces eco-friendly designs and concepts inspired by raw materials: wood and paper.
Every piece in the Woodnotes collection is an ecological design. The paper yarn is spun from a biodegradable yet durable and heavy-weight paper that can be recycled or burned to produce energy. Furthermore, due to the density of the fibers, this material collects no dust and is hypoallergenic.

UPHOLSTERED LOUNGES
Woodnotes was the first to use paper yarn as functional textile in a contemporary way, doing so because of its unique characteristics and versatility. When used on upholstered goods, like the Arenzano or K Chair (shown above), paper yarn proves to be both sturdy and comfortable.

FLOOR COVERINGS
Woodnotes is first and foremost known for its diverse assortment of high and low pile floor coverings. Their rugs are completely customizable and made-to-order in a variety colors and designs with a number of options for backing, pile, trim and size.

WOOD FURNITURE
Over the years, Woodnotes’ collection has expanded from paper yarn carpets to a variety of comprehensive designs, including wood furniture. These products, like the Siro and Twiggy Collections (shown above), are both light-weight and durable while maintaining a characteristically Finnish aesthetic appeal.

TEXTILES
Woodnotes’ designers have also developed designs that display the simple beauty of paper yarn on its own in a range of throws, veils and room dividers. These award winning designs are hand-knit and easy to incorporate into any home.

BED CONCEPT
Woodnotes’ signature paper yarn is hypoallergenic, dustless, anti-static and soil repellent, making it an ideal upholstery for a bedroom. Like their rugs, Woodnotes’ Bed Concept is made to order and completely customizable to your aesthetic desires.
