Designed by textile master Ingegerd Silow, this charming flat-weave rollaken features a splendid collection of floral decorations woven in tender botanical colors.
Swedish Rug, Scandinavia, Mid Century – Drawn in a bold right-angle style, this graphic vintage Swedish kilim features a charming floral bouquet that has artful stylized qualities and a whimsy often considered desirable among admirers of vintage rugs. The directional bouquet composition displays a multitude of mosaic tiles and complex right-angle figures that become arching leaves, segmented petals and brightly colored centers. Soft pastel floral colors, which are an Ingegerd Silow hallmark, are expertly juxtaposed against neighboring blooms and set over a verdant chartreuse ground that incorporates nuanced color variations. Soft blue-green stems cut through the composition and complement the fringe of pixilated foliage. Delicate pinks, soft forget-me-not blues and lavender-purples are combined to form stylized florets with well-defined features and petals that resemble individual flowers. From the tender pastel colors to the novel composition and artful execution, this phenomenal vintage Swedish rug represents the best of regional designs.
