This mid-century rug from Sweden is decorated with a brilliant combination of warm colors, including a stunning selection of lemony yellows and orangey browns.

Swedish Rug, Scandinavia, Mid 20th Century – Created in the mid-1950’s, this radiant Scandinavian rug is decorated with a cubist color wash that features a stunning convergence of right angles, parallel elements and divergent avenues that highlight the perspective of the oblique lines and geometric intersections. The paradoxical composition utilizes defined compartments, chevron stripes and oblique angles that trail off to a distant vanishing point. Narrow end pieces and parallel borders enclose the glowing ray of light that occupies the field. Textural variegation incorporating autumnal oranges and warm browns paired with luminous lemon yellows and soft maize-colored details create a mottled pattern that accentuates the softly colored cells and complementary sunshine-yellow color scheme. This unique mid century vintage Swedish Scandinavian rug has levity, sophistication and a cheery visage incorporating bold yellow, orange and sun-baked brown.
