Vintage Swedish Rug, Origin: Sweden – Embracing the novel style of the 20th century, this vintage Swedish carpet showcases a flamboyant ladyfinger medallion with sweeping curves and art deco lines, typifying the range in style found among vintage rugs. Sharp right-angle figures with bright high-chroma monotones are expertly arranged in a complex tile pattern that’s accented with sleek linear figures, art deco shapes and unexpected color combinations, like powder pink juxtaposed against sandy wood tones, which have a glamorous machine-age style. Pinstripe accents, waving lines, bubbly orbs and slanting stripes are daringly combined in an adventurous pattern that retains many formal features. Medallions, borders and spandrels are expertly included in an elaborate compound composition with abstract influences. Linear motifs, extreme geometry and dainty floral decorations capture the style of the times and the subtle whimsical touches that Scandinavian rugs are renowned for.
