Vintage Scandinavian Swedish Rya Rug, Country of Origin: Sweden, Circa: Mid 20th Century – Enormously popular in the present day, Swedish Rya rugs and carpets woven in this style are unique for their harmonious integration of mid century modern design aesthetics and traditional notions of beauty. Designed by the legendary Marianne Richter, this sophisticated vintage rug – a Scandinavian – depicts a stunning pattern of tessellating polygons. The modern honeycomb motifs are decorated with a chic selection of colorful roundels and radiant sunbursts that are arranged in a delightfully abstract manner. Known as Stjarnor Gron or “Green Stars,” the clever geometric composition features a variety of soft neutrals and graphite grays that are paired with a chic selection of dark mossy hues, soft celery greens and subtle mid-tones. Mottled borders frame the sleek modern composition of this beautiful vintage Swedish rug while countering the rich textures and sumptuous style of the luxurious long pile.
