A Fiery And Beautiful Vintage Marianne Richter Swedish Flat Woven Kilim Rug “Fasad” Red Rug For Marta Maas, Country of Origin: Scandinavia, Circa Date: Mid Century Modern – The brain child of the iconic textile and rug designer Marianne Richter and produced by the Marta Maas Fjetterstrom rug weaving firm, this striking fiery red colored rolakan represents the simplicity and perfection of mid-century modern and vintage Scandinavian rugs and designs.
This magnificent vintage rug from Scandinavia features irregular tiled blocks, in varied widths, that divide the borderless flatweave area rug. These rectangular elements create a superb patchwork style pattern of subtly more and less blocks of similar colors. Dense and variegated details, with smooth stripes, embellish each colorful tile while creating a beautifully nuanced pattern that relies on a minimal level of contrast.
In this magnificent vintage rug, we see the complexity and artistic abilities that go into creating such subtle variations in color and design. In this mid century modern area rug we see how the fiery red colors play off the shades of fuchsia and orange accents that are expertly woven together to create a seemingly minimalist composition. But the more one spends time examining this piece, the more you will start to see just how carefully the colors were created in each tile and how much subtle variation was needed to create such a fascinating example of textile and fiber art.
Charming square color block end pieces conclude the composition and provide a neutral element that showcases the warm red hues perfectly. The center is also divided into sections unsinging very simple geometric lines that support the overall artistic impact and create a fascinating juxtaposition. This vintage Marianne Richter Fasad Swedish rug fully embodies the mid-century modern style with its wonderful use of colors, seemingly minimalist visage and sleek contrasting lines.
While this vintage Scandinavian rug would work perfectly in any modern or specifically Scandi home interior decor style, it’s simplicity and rustic appeal make it far more versatile. For those who are looking for artistic colorful pieces and love the feel and texture of Kilim rugs, this Marianne Richter red Swedish kilim “Fasad” rug would make a phenomenal choice.
