Vintage Scandinavian Carpet, Sweden, c. mid-twentieth century – This fascinating vintage rug from Sweden is an exciting and modern composition, the beauty of which has its foundation both in the its carefully conceived and executed design, as well as from its unique and luxurious pile. Mid-century Swedish rugs such as this come in an extraordinarily vast array of colors and styles, owing to the monumental shift in aesthetics that came with Modernism. This particular example, with its sparse field – which is only interrupted occasionally by different shades of green and blue – is evocative of the modernist belieg in the power of minimal design. Boasting the sumptuous pile that it does, this piece does not miss the sort of ornamentation that would adorn its field were it not such a modern carpet. Thus, this piece is something unique, a composition whose beauty is complex, the result of a successful articulation of an intriguing idea.
