Vintage Scandinavian Swedish Rug, Origin: Sweden, Circa: Mid-20th CenturyCrafted in Sweden during the height of the mid-century design renaissance, this charming vintage rug showcases an assortment of classical weaving motifs arranged in a formal sampler-style format. The evocative compartmental composition hearkens back to Persia’s famous garden carpets while the primitive right-angle motifs are reminiscent of ancient tribal decorations. Each repeating compartment displays a steady assortment of traditional motifs rendered in carefully selected colors. Hexagonal shields, serpentine S-motifs, crenellated towers and churn-dash squares are carefully repeated in a prescribed order that maximizes contrast by shape and color. Simplistic guard bands and linear borders with subtle striped accents add to the modern style of this vintage mid-century rug. Sweden’s creative ingenuity and respect for ancient and distant cultures shine through in this exquisite hand-woven carpet, which displays a wonderful repertoire of traditional weaving motifs.
