Heal's Discovers Fishes Black And Cream Rug By Maria Hatling. Maria Hatling grew up in Norway but now lives and works in London. 'As a child, most of my summers were spent visiting my grandparents', she recalls. 'They lived way up in the north of Norway, in a small fishing village within the Arctic Circle, where the midnight sun made the summer nights seem endless. My grandpa was a fisherman and the kindest person in my world. The Fishes print I created for Heals Discovers was inspired by him, and the colours I chose for my Butterflies print were inspired by the wild meadow flowers I used to pick as a child.' This striking rug by Maria Hatling, features a lively sketched fish print in Maria Hatling's freehand style. Hatling drew inspiration for this design from her grandpa, who was a fisherman. The contrast between the neutral background and black fish silhouettes work well to create a bold and contemporary rug.
Part of Heal's Discovers, the Sketch range by Maria Hatling includes specially designed prints, cushions, lampshades and rugs.
