Vintage Scandinavian Rug, Sweden, Mid-Twentieth Century – Here is an understated, comely vintage rug – a mid-century Scandinavian piece, woven and designed by the enduringly popular rug-makers of Sweden. Characterized by a composition that emphasizes square figures and right angles, this vintage carpet boasts the classically straightforward, minimalist design aesthetics of mid-century designers, which have remained in very high favor for decades. A pleasant blue-purple tone pervades the piece, the softness of which contrasts beautifully with the rigidity of the line work. Similarly, the square shape of this rug is something slightly outside of the ordinary, and seems to owe quite a bit to the composition of the piece, which stresses squares and right angles at every opportunity. For instance, the square figures that parade along the border are traditional Scandinavian figures, favored by mid-century designers for their simplicity and rectilinear personality. Due to the format of the composition, the filed itself is effectively a large square, the lack of ornamentation in which reinforces the borders, and the right angles that work to characterize the piece.
