Biblioteket means library in Swedish. This is a hand-knoted rug with design that represents a mixture of Emma’s first sketches of the Old Library in National Museum. With its three arches and three large windows at the top, in the middle rows of books in the old bookshelf and at the bottom the newly laid oak parquet.
