The iconic motif on the table runner celebrates Christmas as the feast of the heart and is a signature design in the Georg Jensen collection. The table runner can be used directly on the table or over a white damask tablecloth for a more festive look.
The Christmas motif was designed by Bodil Bødtker-Næss, who was part of the inner circle of textile artists around Georg Jensen Damask in the 1970s. For more than 45 years, the braided Christmas hearts and stylized fir branches have been synonymous with the Christmas spirit, and are an indispensable part of Christmas in many homes.
In the dark green color Copenhagen, the runner gets a particularly atmospheric expression. The color is inspired by the green shade of Copenhagen gates and benches, and on the Christmas table it creates an expression that ties traditional and modern Christmas together.
With a history spanning more than 100 years, Georg Jensen represents unique craftsmanship and timeless aesthetic design ranging from small silverware to watches, jewelery and products for the home.
Georg Jensen's own philosophy was to create democratic design with both functionality and beauty. His craftsmanship and artistic talent, combined with his ability to identify and support design talent, were the foundations on which he built the Georg Jensen business in Copenhagen in 1904.
