Breathtaking “Spegelnatt” Vintage Swedish Carpet, By Artists Brita Molin, Country of Origin: Sweden, Circa Date: 1971— The artistBrita Molin‘s needlework is visible throughout this striking piece, drawing attention to the fabric itself in a way that is consistent with Swedish designs. An oceanic scene is cut in half horizontally down the middle and establishes two distinct backgrounds: the top a deep, grounding navy blue and the bottom a rich, inviting sea-green. The viewer’s eyes follow liquid paths of movement set in a fiery crimson flow down the tapestry, which create contrast and flow throughout the piece. A mandarin orange and sunshine yellow shape rests at the rug‘s center, bringing to mind visions of a vivacious sky over the sea.
