Our Story

Styles come and go. Good design is a language, not a style.

It all began in a family weaving mill over 40 years ago in Scandinavia, where the art of weaving has been passed down from generation to generation.

With a background in textile design, Marjatta Rautionmaa, brought the trend-setting rug designs from her family mill to the United States and founded Scandecor Rugs in 1981. Her vision was and continues to be to provide elegant and modern rug designs and high-quality craftsmanship to the decorative market.

Inspired by organic forms of nature, our unique hand-woven rugs are designed and handcrafted by leading Scandinavian designers and professional weavers. 

Our natural and sustainable materials are the pride of our region. The innovative weaving technology that we employ allows us to achieve superior quality and create exceptionally durable wool rugs and broadloom, making them the benchmark for our company.

Our distinctive rugs are our design legacy.  Today Scandecor Rugs is recognized by the industry for our contemporary design brand in custom rugs and carpeting.
