Vintage Velvet Print Scandinavian Rug by Stig Lindberg, Origin: Scandinavia, Circa: Mid 20th Century – This brilliant printed velvet textile artfully immortalizes the colorful, whimsical works of Stig Lindberg, who is an undisputed hero and champion of mid-century Swedish style and vintage carpets. This archetypal Lindberg design transforms a traditional Tree of Life (Livets Trad) pattern in a manner that incorporates colorful abstractions, bold geometrizations and whimsical renderings of familiar figures. From the wildly decorated people, birds and animals to the towering Dagwood-style buildings, this marvelous and pleasantly playful work of art is full of hidden images and abstract details that add to its stylistic and colorful richness. This classical Lingberg Tree of Life textile was designed for the Nordiska Kompaniet and bears the NK:s Textilkammare insignia.
