Vintage Scandinavian Swedish Rug, Country of Origin: Sweden, Circa Date: Mid-Twentieth Century – Here is a beautiful, intriguing vintage rug – a Scandinavian carpet from the mid-twentieth century, designed by renowned painter Piet Mondrian. Most famous for his paintings depicting straight black lines and rectangular figures of primary red, blues, and yellow, Mondrian has long been considered one of the most unique and influential modern painters to have worked in the medium. This exceptional vintage rug, with its fascinating pallet of secondary colors (purples, oranges) and its uneven, grid like pattern, while not necessarily immediately recognizable as Mondrian, is indeed a subtle variation on the artist’s preferred themes. Rather than a rigid latticework and stark primary tones, we have instead an interesting twist on this idea, with irregular lines and more complicated tones. A fascinating example designed by a world class artists, this mid-century modern Scandinavian rug is a unique and beautiful composition.
