Beautiful Vintage Scandinavian Marta Maas Rug by Marianne Richter Country of Origin / Rug Type: Scandinavia Rug, Circa Date: Mid – 20th Century – This beautiful vintage mid century Marta Maas rug is a unique masterpiece with modern vibes that was created by the iconic textile designer Marianne Richter.
This beautiful mid century Scandinavian rug boasts intricate rectangular structures which are rendered in contrasting hues of pinks, purples, ivory and sandy colors. These larger rectangular designs of the border and field accentuate the lighter smaller design patterns that are sandwiched between the border and inner rectangle of the field
The outer most part of the border of the vintage mid century carpet is comprised by a very thin strand of solid mauve or pink. Next to this tiny edge border, we see a thicker strip of precisely uniform narrow rectangles in varying colors purple / pink based colors.
Next we come to the more intricately design inner guard border. This border is placed up against the rectangular strips. Its dazzling white background and pink and purple / mauve toned mesh design pattern really pop to create a very soothing and happy artistic impact.
The core of the design of this magnificent vintage Scandinavian Marta Maas rug is the rectangle design. This recurring theme exudes and exemplifies the true feel of the mid century modern artistic movement.
The skillful contrast between the uniform rectangular figures connected by thin lines, stands out from the background pattern of vividly saturated color tones. The resulting visual impression is not unlike that of a stained-glass window, whereby the rich darker colors of the background are perceived through pastel panes.
This stunning vintage Scandinavian Marta Maas rug is a work of complex beauty. The brilliance of its creator is proved by the brilliantly contrasting colors and curious designs.
