Vintage Scandinavian Tapestry Rug by Corneille, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Scandinavia Rug, Circa Date:1950 – This unique vintage Scandinavian rug by the iconic 20th century artist Corneille, captures modern pride and beauty with its bold colors and geometric shapes. Its thick, plush texture completes the overall effect by creating visual depth and tactile luxury.
The Picasso-like style of this tapestry rug creates a modern vibe, but this doesn’t detract from its connection to a more primitive allure. There is a hint of primitive tribe like beauty in this work of textile art, formed by two animal figures shaped in the likeness of exotic birds.
The small bird, unlike the other figures in the image, appears to be looking directly at the observer with a pensive stare that draws the eye immediately to the center of the vintage mid century carpet. The small bird’s body is striped with black lines, matching the lines of the sun that sits above the larger bird.
With its brilliant blue body and coral colored tail, eyes, and legs, the design of larger bird covers a vast part of the carpet’s center. The vivid coral color also outlines the bird’s wings in bold lines, creating the image of two triangles.
A distinct cubism influenced geometric design is rendered consistently throughout the Scandinavian tapestry rug’s illustration, but since the lines are wobbly and broken off in some places, the overall visual effect is quite complex.
There is so much mathematical unity as well as flamboyant abstractness in this riveting work of art. This unique Scandinavian tapestry rug will add bold vibrancy, luxurious comfort, and a special modern flair to any interior designed space it occupies.
