Swedish Rug, Scandinavia, Mid 20th Century – Woven by Ann-Mari Forsberg at the workshops of Marta Maas-Fjetterstrom, this charming mid-century rug from Sweden features a series of interlocking lollipop motifs set in horizontal compartments. Repeating motifs create a lovely allover pattern of coffered squares that are rendered in a selection of vibrant gem tones. Amethyst purple and aubergine-tinted black details embellish the lovely burgundy-colored background. A single band of isolated polygons surrounded by concentric outlines marks the center of the composition and divides the repeating bands of interlocking polygons that span the field. While crisp whites paired with stunning gem tones emphasize the outlines of the coffered polygons, subtle hash-mark boundaries and woven chevron stripes divide the field and link each interlocking polygon. Richly textural patterns, polka dots, speckles, latticework grids and minute checkers juxtaposed against monochromatic shapes add to the visual interest of this geometric Scandinavian rug.
