A Simplistic Open Field Design Vintage Red Color Swedish Kilim Rug by Ingegerd Silow, Country of Origin: Scandinavia, Circa Date: Mid-Twentieth Century – As one of the more iconic vintage mid century Scandinavian rug designers, Ingegerd Silow is celebrated for her delightful vintage rugs that capture the winning essence of Scandinavian rugs and carpets.
This splendid Swedish rug is a lovely expression of Silow’s unique and appealing minimalist style and bold colors. The bright red tone of the open field and the juxtaposing geometric details speak to her strengths as a designer. Indeed, the sheer simplicity of this carpet speaks to many of the finer trends of mid-century Scandinavian rug design. Because the filed is unadorned with detail elements, the remarkably bright red, that is just a couple of shades lighter than the encompassing border, defines the rug and has an especially prominent voice. The use of slightly different shading for the field also adds much depth to the overall artistic impact.
The red color of the field also adds considerable contrast to the border, which appears as a series of puzzle-piece style floral details, interlocked in a rectangular band. A beautiful and deceptively simple composition, this vintage kilim rug by Ingegerd Silow is a lovely example of how artistic these pieces can be.
Ingegerd Silow is best known for combining her striking sense of color and geometry with the charm of traditional Scandinavian folk patterns and motifs. Her area rugs are chic and subtle, but retain an air of whimsy that Scandinavian folk art is known for. This piece, which perfectly demonstrates the marriage of Scandinavian tradition and modern design, would be a lovely addition to any contemporary interior.
If you are shopping for rugs and looking to buy a rug that is both impactful yet simple then this minimalist, open field design, red vintage Ingegerd Silow Swedish kilim rug would be a phenomenal option. Especially for those who truly love mid century modern rugs and design.
