Vintage Swedish Kilim, Origin: Sweden, Circa: Mid-20th Century – Here is a beautiful and exciting vintage carpet – a mid-twentieth century Scandinavian carpet, designed and woven in Sweden during the height of mid-century rug production. Authentic vintage Scandinavian rugs and carpets are exceedingly popular, admired as they are for they unique and bold modernist compositions. This particular carpet is an excellent example of that tendency, featuring as it does a decidedly minimalist, modern composition. This comely vintage carpet features a diagonal grid pattern, made up of a series of fine brown lines, with some of the negative space, Mondrian-esque, full of color. The modern style of this carpet is representative of the broader trend in mod-century Scandinavian carpets to combine traditional elements of design with contemporary sensibilities. The result of this fusion of aesthetics is a style of rug that is timeless and exciting, dynamic and full of energy.
