To Be Living
Part of the Eilersen family, To Be Living offers fresh and contemporary textiles and home accents of the highest quality. Founded by Bettina Eilersen, daughter of renowned designer Jens Juul Eilersen, To Be Living has made a commitment to each rug, pillow and throw they produce, sourcing from only the best materials.
Exposed to home design and textiles at a young age, Bettina Eilersen traveled to many textile fairs with her father, learning how to pick only the best materials from the best suppliers. Unique to the To Be Living collection are the Silk Sari Rugs. The material of these rugs is uniquely sourced from vintage, authentic Indian saris which are unraveled and then spun into new yarn to be hand knotted into a luxurious new rug. The result of this unique and sustainable process is that no two Silk Sari Rugs are exactly the same.
In the design process, Bettina Eilersen tries to consider every detail of each item, from the material, to the construction--even to the emotional response that the finished product will elicit from a customer. Of utmost importance to To Be Living and its founder is that the customer can see and feel the quality of the materials in each product and experience the joy of being surrounded with color.
