This week’s Wednesday Wishlist is a charming Vintage Swedish Kilim by Marta Maas Fjetterstrom!
This Wednesday, we’re very delighted to share with you a beautiful Vintage Swedish Kilim that captures the true essence of traditional Swedish folk weaving. Deep brown statuesque squares frame each small vivacious window filled with slices of contrasting green triangular patterns that melt into each other with great ease. As these fascinating geometric silhouettes assemble in unison, dashing streaks of white lines and an assortment of green bars piece together a puzzle of organized shapes that form one great centerpiece, bringing each small and intricate segment to life!
Marta Maas Fjetterstrom, the creator of this beautiful Vintage Swedish Kilim, was born in Sweden and her inspiration to create this eclectic rug stemmed from the beautiful pastures and fresh grassy plains of her native land. These earthy tones and sprouting crisp greens mark the epitome of old Swedish tradition, yet its traditional modernist motifs and striking color patterns inspire most 21st century interior designers and and rug lovers to hang these beautiful kilims over spacious white walls, instead, displaying them as if they were beautiful works of art.
Like most Swedish designers, Marta Maas Fjetterstrom reveals a deep passion for simple geometric shapes, and a great appreciation for rich organic colors that depict a very refreshing vision of nature. The spirit of Swedish folklore flows through each strand woven together and embodies a simple but elegant Swedish design that transcends through generations, cultures, and styles. Rugs from Sweden are traditionally known for their incorporation of chic patterns and modern appearances. Naturally, this is what makes them a perfect combination for both traditional styles and modern decor.
The beauty in this Vintage Swedish Kilim truly lies in its great diversity. No matter how you style this timeless mid-century modern masterpiece it never fails to make an exciting splash for those who lay eyes on it- turning heads and warming hearts everywhere!
