Vintage Swedish Rug, Origin: Swedish, Origin: Mid 20th Century – Created circa 1950, this charming vintage rug from Scandinavia features a modern spin on the familiar prayer niche format with solid borders and rows of tightly spaced lozenges that create a detailed hounds tooth pattern across the field. Subtle striped borders complement the chic coffered squares and mottled gray details that are used throughout the field. Obscure charcoal black details and muted gray accents offset the ivory background and low-chroma color scheme. This modern Swedish rug is masculine, stylish, low-key and richly textured with its crenellated fences, monochrome accents and variegated details. Known for their reserved style and sophistication, this Scandinavian rug is an iconic visual representation of the minimalist designs and low-chroma color palettes that flourished in the mid-20th century.
