The subtly variegated colours of Balder bring an inviting softness to upholstered furniture. Originally designed by Fanny Aronsen and re-coloured by Raf Simons, Balder is woven from several different tones of thread in an apparently irregular weave pattern that creates subtle fluctuations in colour across the surface of the fabric.
Ranging from fresh and directional to reassuringly classic and rich, the key colourways of Balder are based around greens, greys, purples, pinks and yellow. In some instances the base colour is combined with a top note colour—in one a pink is woven together with a vibrant orange, in another with a vibrant green—with refreshing, but surprisingly understated results.
