Vintage Scandinavian Per Arnoldi Rug by Ege, Country Of Origin: Scandinavia, Circa Date: Mid-20th Century – Here is an exciting and intriguing vintage carpet – an Ege art rug that was woven in Scandinavia during the middle years of the twentieth century with a design by the celebrated Danish artist Per Arnoldi. This vibrant carpet beautifully channels Arnoldi’s unique approach to design, which is focused on spatial relationships. Here, a series of rectangular figures are fitted together, with each square expressing a different impression. A large, bright red rectangle dominates the left side of the carpet. This solid block is unadorned with any sort of decoration. Directly beneath, as if supporting the red block, is a square of dark blue. Here, light blue swaths add an extra dimension to the square. The right side of this carpet features three stacked squares of equal size: a yellow square at the top, followed by two blue squares of the same style as the one below the red rectangle. A delightfully modern carpet, this rug designed by Per Arnoldi is an exciting work.
