A Magnificent Vintage Mid Century Modern Swedish Gron Ang Carpet by Marta Maas Fjetterstrom, Country of Origin: Scandinavia, Circa date: Mid-20th Century – The gentle hues of this geometric vintage Scandinavian rug, by mid 20th century textile designer, the iconic Marta Maas Fjetterstrom, is as beautiful today as it was when it first came off the carpet weaving loom. The gently shifting blues, greens, and grays of the Gron Ang carpet compliment gentle pinks, rust, and yellows to create a vintage rug that is reminiscent of a quilt design.
The blending of the tones is natural and gives the vintage Swedish rug a rustic charm that would go well in a room that features organic textures and colors. It is the perfect area rug for adding a bit of color and texture to a minimalist design. The repeating motifs of the design appear to be quilting blocks, or perhaps stylized, simple flowers. The artist, Marta Maas Fjetterstrom, used simple lines to divide the field into separate top borders, side borders and a horizontally striped field. However, this is done subtly, giving this beautiful Gron Ang carpet the appearance of an all over design.
Marta Maas Fjetterstrom used nature as the inspiration for her widely popular Swedish flat weave rugs and designs. Her rug designs and patterns are intentionally inspired by nature to bring the outside into the interior decor of the house. Her designs offer a refreshing reprieve from the minimalist concrete and steel designs that were popular during the mid-20th-century. Marta Maas’s designs add color to the room, break up the straight lines, yet do so using subtle, earth-inspired colors and hues. This vintage mid century modern Swedish Marta Maas Fjetterstrom Gron Ang carpet is a truly beautiful kilim that is sure to bring a little bit of nature into your home.
