Vintage Swedish Rya Rug by Marta Maas Fjetterstrom, Origin: Sweden, Circa: Mid 20th Century – This captivating Scandinavian vintage rug features an outstanding abstract pattern of lenticular stripes and sweeping parabolae created by Barbro Nilsson for the Marta Maas-Fjetterstrom firm in the mid-1950s. Elliptical curves, straight planes and sharp diagonal accents come together to form a wonderfully geometric pattern full of detail and op-art illusions. Radiant crisscrossing stripes and polychromatic accents give the understated composition depth and movement as patterns and lines shift in and out of focus. Subtle low-contrast embellishments set over the warm citrine ground blend together smoothly while adding texture and playing off the blurred texture of the shaggy Rya-style pile. This outstanding vintage Swedish rug embodies mid-century modern rug minimalism with its understated color palette, impeccable geometry and dazzling use of linear motifs.
