The son of AIA National Award-winner, Richard Lindstrom, Erik grew up with an immediate and acute appetite for contemporary interiors and architecture and quickly followed suit by attending the Florence Design Academy in Italy. After completing his Master’s degree in Interiors and Furniture Design, Erik worked as an interior designer, focusing on high-end residential interiors and architecture. It was here where he gained a passion and deep understanding of the intricacies of custom, hand-woven rugs.
After establishing relationships with his factories in Nepal, Thailand and India, Erik started Lindstrom Rugs with the intention of designing rugs which evoke bespoke, timeless luxury. He prides his custom designs on a commitment to quality, and uses an eye trained on urban and natural landscapes to create original patterns and rug concepts. Although based in Los Angeles, Erik fuels his inspiration for design with frequent trips around the US and abroad.
