Swedish Kilim, Sweden, Mid 20th Century – Crafted by the legendary master weaver and designer Sophia Widen, this spectacular signed kilim is a quintessential mid-century vintage rug with retro “Mad Men” colors, graphic motifs and a stylish sense of minimalism that is perfectly Scandinavian. The rich walnut-colored background features a divine bark-like variegation that continues behind the subtle small-scale lozenges that dot the field. Crenelated stars set in looped crescents are paired with colorful mid-century orbs that form repeating border units. Crisp manila-colored borders with zigzagging saw tooth edges visually link the soft yellow lozenges and crenellated-crescent composite motifs, creating a balanced, well-styled composition. Tomato reds, soft greens and a complete spectrum of colors are expertly worked into the formal borders while maintaining the definite sense of balance, harmony and modernity that is uniquely Scandinavian.
