Vintage Swedish Rug by Marta Maas, Origin: Scandinavia, Circa: Early 20th Century – Ideal for a delicate, subtly styled space, this timeless vintage rug from Sweden, or matta flossa, features Marta Maas-Fjetterstrom’s charming 1931 design entitled “Rings.” The dainty yet decisive composition highlights Fjetterstrom’s extraordinary talent for creating balanced patterns and selecting harmonious colors. Alternating doily roundels and ringed medallions form a superb tile pattern augmented by right-angle accents and clever color variations. Carefully styled motifs and deliberate color choices enhance the refined pattern and give it a cool, airy style. Barber-pole stripes in alternating hues of taupe, citrine and periwinkle encircle the tiled field and offset the icy blue borders that display a soft variegated mottling. These inconspicuous Fjetterstrom accents enrich the pattern and composition obviously yet subtly, in the same manner that carpets are intended to enhance a space.
