Swedish Rugs - Swedish Rugs and carpets have a long history in Scandinavian weaving which reaches right into the Modern period. An established form of Swedish folk weaving, "Rollakans" were used as coverlets or flat woven tapestry rugs. Swedish rugs and carpets are the product of ancient weaving traditions transported from countries in the Asian Steppe on epic journeys through harsh Arctic conditions. Evolving from a practical fur-like cold weather garment into a stylish coverlet, the Rya was the premier all-purpose textile for the Scandinavian region.

After many years of creating long-pile Ryas and flat-woven carpets, Swedish weavers developed a passion for designs incorporating simple geometric patterns and artful motifs based on regional folklore. By the 20th century, Swedish rugs were international art objects that were partly the product of government funding. Swedish master weavers and textile artists continued to grow their trendsetting style with shaggy carpets, bold works of art and colorful rugs that epitomize modern, mid-century designs.

Vintage Swedish rugs and carpets have been the benefactors of the recent resurgence in mid-century modern interiors. Rugs from Sweden are known for incorporating modernist motifs and designs which naturally go perfectly in any modern decor or setting. As the demand increases for the art deco and vintage rugs - people can expect the prices of the Swedish rugs to escalate over the next few years.

With that said, Swedish rugs and carpets are probably the best value - simply put - for a fraction of what it would cost to get a good (not great) mid-century modernist painting, one could buy any one of a number of the best Swedish rugs that ever made. It is because of this simple fact that people are now buying Swedish rugs and using them as wall hangings / tapestries. There is no doubt that the Swedish rugs and carpets have equally as much artistic value as any painting but since the price points are so much less this begs the question - why buy a modernist painting when you could own a Swedish rug that is equally as beautiful and is far less expensive?

As a nice little side note, the term "antique rugs" in Swedish is: antika mattor.
