Vintage Swedish Kilim, Origin: Sweden, Circa: Mid 20th Century – This quaint vintage mid-century Swedish Kilim features a lovely compilation of geometric tiles and inset stepped lozenges that have an inviting homespun appearance – characteristic of Swedish vintage rugs. Soft variegated shades of rose red, mossy green, lavender and maize yellow give the linear composition an elegant cottage-style visage that is paired with strong geometric figures and formal compositional elements that have rustic craftsman influences. Colorful stepped-lozenge motifs create a classically styled pattern in the compartmental field, which is cleverly repurposed in the complementary borders. Neutral strap work dividers and woody brown dovetail borders offset the all-encompassing botanical color palette and ground the delicate composition. This marvelous mid-century Swedish Kilim effortlessly combines formal elements and casual influences to create a pleasant and inviting result.
