Vintage Swedish Rug by Eva Alfredsson, Origin: Sweden, Circa: Mid-20th Century – Here is a beautiful vintage Scandinavian rug – a mid-century Swedish rug signed by Eva Alfredsson. This charming carpet is primarily characterized by its color pallet of ocean tones and its incorporation of small abstract design elements, all of which come together to give the entire carpet the impression of an photograph of the ocean, taken from directly above. Of course, this is merely suggested by the composition of the rug, the soothing tones of which may also suggest a wide open sky, or perhaps the stratified layers of an ancient rockface. Indeed, the wide range of possibilities suggested in the simplistic composition of this Swedish rug is a phenomenon consistent with the best-designed mid-century pieces, which, generally speaking, emphasize abstract and modern design ideals in favor of classical, traditional compositions. The result is a dynamic piece, the beauty of which is largely determined and interpreted by the observer. This vintage  rug is a great example of this trend, its layers of colors and abstract symbols pulling the observer in, asking for a unique interpretation.
