Vintage Swedish Rya Rug, Origin: Sweden, Circa: Mid-20th Century – Fiery warm tones, understated neutrals and crisp jet black background details are juxtaposed in this luxurious vintage Swedish Rya rug. Concentrated hues of persimmon, lemon yellow and marigold create distilled color blocks with dripping paint-stroke trails that conceal their neighbors. Transparent overlays going this way and that form intense line- and shape-based figures that have dimension and contrast, as if they were applied in a specific, deliberate order. Soft taupe and tawny brown details tone down the fiery sunshine colors while the dark background amplifies the intense hues. Sumptuous shag carpet textures provide a rough textural element that adds to the realism of the abstract paint-brush patterns. This color-rich Swedish rug is the perfect complement to mid-century modern decor, complete with the retro colors that are so popular today.
