The gentle curves are reminiscent of waves coming together from different areas of the surface of a piece of water. The curves create motion, like water rippling across the surface of a reflecting pool. This effect brings a natural element into the space in a way that is modern and dynamic. This would be the perfect rug to serve as the foundation for a glass top table, or for placing in front of a contemporary sofa in a room of soft blues and grays.
The artist captured the essence of the sun shining down on the gentle waves of the reflecting pool in a way that creates a feeling of serenity and peace. The materials chosen by the artist enhance this effect. Silk reflects the light in the room to capture it as it changes throughout the day. It adds luminescence to the room like only silk can do. Wool gives it a warm grounded feel that enhances the effect of the silk to create a light and airy feel.
Swedish rugs became popular in the mid-20th century because they served as a point of contrast and create a focal point in the room. Today, we love them for many of the same reasons, and they are finding their way into Scandinavian and mid-century-inspired designs. This rug would be the perfect piece in a retro room that features furniture with plenty of open space underneath. Anywhere you decide to use it, it is a rug that sparks the imagination and will make a delightful addition to any room of the home.
