Marta Maas Fjetterstrom has works in some of the most prestigious museums in the world, and designers everywhere covet her pieces for their impeccable quality and their unique, beautiful designs.

Attributed to the matriarch of Sweden’s homegrown weaving and carpet design talents, this romantic Scandinavian rug depicts a charming assortment of geometric designs and modular motifs that bear Marta Maas Fjetterstrom hallmarks. Pastel mineral tones and delicate neutral hues appear throughout the dainty field and geometric borders, which have a subtle feminine style. Decorative picture frame tiles with zigzagging edges and angular decorations punctuate the variegated field at precise intervals creating a design that is both classical and modern. The delightful poly chrome borders spring out of the composition thanks to their complementary colors and precise counter change outlines, which produce a marvelous pattern-within-a-pattern effect that makes a simple modular motif a work of art.
