The universe on a rug? With this Swedish rug, it seems someone had design inspiration from a higher place. But the rug’s swirling solar system is actually a product of the geometric patterns made famous by Scandinavian weavers. Usually inspired by folk elements, Swedish rugs have a long history that dates back to the fifteenth century. First designed as cold weather wear, they evolved into an cherished craft featuring stylishly designed textiles with modern motifs.
Today, Swedish rugs are seeing a resurgence in popularity thanks to their natural marriage with mid-century modern interiors. Unquestionably works of art in themselves, they are also increasingly being used as wall hangings. Lending an extraterrestrial element to a space, this round round is perfectly designed for entrance ways, foyers or small sized rooms. Of course, some have said this rug is less supernatural, and more practical. It looks a lot like the favorite drink of a busy weaver – the cappuccino!
