This sophisticated vintage kilim from Sweden features a geometric allover pattern with a negative version woven into the back of this dual-sided, flat-woven carpet.

Swedish Rug, Scandinavia, Mid 20th Century – Rendered in a graphic combination of charcoal black, crimson and vermilion, this bold vintage kilim from Sweden features an assortment of simple geometric motifs that are combined to create a striking two-sided allover pattern. On the obverse side, central columns of tightly spaced harlequin lozenges are strategically set inside a larger latticework grid. The reverse side of this spectacular flat woven kilim features a negative version of a similarly geometric design with divided parallelograms that have sharply serrated edges created by rows of minor stacked lozenges. The tone-on-tone selection of vermilion and crimson creates a sophisticated statement that is counterbalanced by stark charcoal gray lines and precise lozenges. Ingenious in its geometric composition and bold color palette, this fabulous Scandinavian kilim embodies the ingenuity and skill that earned Swedish craftspeople a place among the best 20th century artists and weavers.
