Vintage Swedish Kilim by Marta Maas Fjatterstorm, Origin: Sweden, Circa: Mid-20th Century – Designed by Marta Maas-Fjetterstrom, this exceptional vintage rug features an iconic pattern of tiled stepped lozenges with clean lines, minimalist influences and Eastern undertones. This enduring design, known as ‘Bruna heden,’ is subtle, powerful and perfectly balanced. Thanks to contributions like this Swedish rug, Fjetterstrom’s skills helped to define contemporary design standards, and her work has become a yardstick that others are measured by. This understated pattern has perfect symmetry and great geometric details that are accentuated by the constant flaxen outlines and elegant selection of berry reds and earthy browns, which are offset by crisp white accents and dark espresso hues. Alternating borders provide a pleasant diversion and conclusion while maintaining the reserved color scheme and constant right-angle steps that link the beautifully patterned field with the timeless border motifs.
