Rusalka the term stems from Slavic mythology and describes a type of nature spirit that mostly resembles a water sprite or mermaid. They are said to have beautiful, transparent bodies and long flowing, waving, or floating hair, which is why they are mainly associated with the element of water. The same applies to this collection of lamps, carpets, and cushions.
They also rather bring to mind magical apparitions, bizarre plants, or ephemeral, mythical creatures more than functionally sober furnishings.
