Lovely Mid-Century Modern Geometric Swedish Scandinavian Design Contemporary Flatweave Kilim Rug, Country of origin: Central Asia, Circa date: Modern Rugs – This gorgeous neutral Scandinavian rug has a retro feel but is suited for modern tastes. The design of this rug mimics the Midcentury Modern rugs by famous artists, such as Barbro Nilsson and Marta Maas-Fjetterstrom. Swedish rugs were an integral part of Midcentury Modern design, and today, they continue to grow as a popular element of contemporary design.
The essence of Swedish design is a concept that also drove the architectural design of the mid-twentieth century. It is the idea that man must learn to blend into the natural world. The roots of the concept of biophilic design were well underway as artists explored the intersection of man and nature. They represented man-made elements with hard lines and geometric shapes. The natural world was represented by colors and curvy shapes.
This rug uses only geometric elements as its foundation, but the artist included abstract flowers and used only colors found in the natural world. The rug has a muted color palette that is calming and serene. The pattern offers variety in form, but it also seems to have a natural rhythm and gives you a sense of order.
Scandinavian style still depends on neutrals as its foundation. If you are a minimalist, this rug would be a beautiful way to add interest to the space without straying from a neutral color scheme. You could create a warm and inviting space by adding a few textured textiles in grays, browns, and cream.
This rug is the perfect foundation for a cozy and inviting space with overstuffed chairs or a curvy sofa for contrast. Adding in pieces made from natural materials will help you create a look that will bring a feeling of being outdoors to the interior space. The neutral colors also call for adding in a few plants from your collection and other organic art pieces. Biophilic design means bringing the outside to the indoors, and this rug is ready to help you bring this design concept to your home or office.
