Roots Living carpets and textiles have conquered
public projects as well. Durable carpets made of natural
materials withstand daily wear and tear, remaining beautiful for
a long time. Roots Living rugs have a Finnish design and look and
are perfect for a Scandinavian minimalist interior. All carpets can
be designed according to the dimensions and
the color scheme of the project.

The interior of the Runo Hotel Porvoo is the sure handprint of
the award-winning Joanna Laajisto. The interior has a thoughtful
combination of Finnish and Nordic design as well as high-quality
natural materials and a harmonious color scheme.
Joanna Laajisto chose carpets and bedspreads from the Roots Living
collection for the hotel. The color shades of the carpets were
defined to match the hotel interior and the sizes to match the purpose
of use of the premises.
The hotel has Fishbone Linen bedspreads and Loop Wool and Plain Wool
carpets in warm brown tones. As a material, wool is well suited
for public spaces because it is inherently fire-resistant.
Sokos Hotel Torni
Hotel Torni’s rooms were decorated with special-colored carpets according to interior architect Joanna Laajisto’s plans. In addition, the suites were furnished with luxuriously soft hand-knotted rugs in a delicious shade of green. Other rooms have Loop Wool carpets in a special color.

The completely renovated classic hotel Solo Sokos Torni opened its doors in Helsinki in April 2022. In the new Torni, the focus has been on unique and spectacular interior design. The hotel has 154 rooms in the Art Deco and Jugend parts of the building. Studio Joanna Laajisto, who designed the interior of the rooms, chose Roots Living as Torni’s carpet manufacturer. Roots Living carpets can be customized according to the color and size, material and design desired by the customer.
In the design of the hotel rooms, Joanna Laajisto wanted to emphasize the historical style and unique colors of the era. The color design was influenced by the blue and brown that describe art nouveau, and the green that describes art deco. Wool was chosen as the material for the hotel rooms, which is a pure natural material and easy to keep clean.
In addition, wool is itself a fire-safe material.

In the beautifully renovated Bo LKV office, a sculptural sofa group rests beautifully on a Pilari rug designed by Ulla Koskinen. In the green-painted conference room, the oak conference table with chairs fits well with the Wicker rug designed by Joanna Laajisto.

Bo LKV, the fastest growing real estate broker in Finland, opened a new office in Helsinki’s Kruununhaka, in a residential building representing the neo-renaissance built at the end of the 19th century. A bright apartment opened up in the former restaurant space, the renovation of which respected the old style and coloring of the house.
The impressive atmosphere of the office designed by interior architect Jenni Leikas starts as soon as you enter the front door. The eye wanders from the harmonious herringbone parquet to the sculptural lounge group resting on the Pilari rug from Roots Living. The theme of ingeniously painted walls continues from the lounge through the revolving doors to the green conference room, where oak table group sits nicely on Roots Living’s Wicker hemp rug.
Bo LKV Lahti
A soft Pilari carpet was chosen for the lounge space of Bo LKV’s renewed office. The rug pattern designed by Ulla Koskinen suits dark furniture and rough brick wall.
