Vintage Swedish Tapestry Rug by Marta Maas, Origin: Sweden, Circa: Mid 20th CenturyCreated by design legend Marta Maas Fjetterstrom circa 1950, this marvelous mid-century Swedish tapestry rug is a flat-woven carpet after the modernist’s heart. Rendered in an unfettered free-form style, this spectacular art carpet – the design of which is unique, even across the wide range of styles employed by designers of vintage carpets – is a definitive representation of the evolution of the carpet from a utilitarian item to a high-art form. Lenticular stripes and cubist shapes add motion, depth and illusion to the two-dimensional surface while exemplifying the tremendous combination of design, planning and weaving skills necessary to create a piece with so many levels of detail. Pure white accents paired with a chic combination of Kohl black, gray, blue, rosebud pink, coral red and scarlet emphasize the richly textural stripes, freeform people and abstract shapes that embellish the flat-woven surface on this vintage rug.
