Mid Century Vintage Swedish Scandinavian Marta Maas Rug, Country of Origin: Sweden, Circa Date: 1930’s – Though relatively simple in its design like many other Scandinavian rugs, this gentle vintage rug that was created by the iconic Marta Maas, is meant to convey a sense of tranquility. It only makes use of two primary colors, chosen skillfully to create a subtle degree of contrast along some of the finer points of contact between negative and positive space. A pale ivory and grey tone stands against a slightly deeper shade of the same hue. Though clear motion is visible between the contrasting sections, the angular patterns create a powerful sense of rigidity. Combined with the elegant colors, the viewer is treated to a tranquil vintage Scandinavian rug from Sweden, one that is reminiscent of a natural outdoor environment, like a temple graced with natural growths and floral elements.
