Inspired by the craftsman Renaissance, this vintage Swedish runner depicts a classic MMF design that honors the beauty of simplicity and handcrafting traditions.

A Beautiful Marta Maas Fjetterstrom  Swedish Rug, Scandinavia, mid-century– This classical runner-style kilim features a timeless pattern of subtly striped color blocks and subway tile borders that show exactly why Scandinavian designers are masters of understatement. This traditional Marta Maas-Fjetterstrom design is the paradigm of Swedish simplicity. The gently patterned field is divided into alternating brick-tone tiles that are separated by rows of infinitesimal lozenge-filled chains that are Fjetterstrom hallmarks. Segmented borders with clear monochromatic colors line the edges of the composition and pick out the subtle warm-tone hues that are expertly incorporated into the flat-weave field. This distinguished Swedish corridor carpet is balanced, understated and possesses all the features that make a design stylish yet ageless. Named in honor of craftsman proponent Carl Malmsten, this classical pattern was developed by Marta Maas-Fjetterstrom in 1934 and still retains its timeless modernity today.
