Vintage Scandinavian Rug by Marta Maas-Fjetterstrom, Origin: Sweden, Circa: Mid 20th Century – This mid-century Scandinavian vintage rug depicts a stunning pattern of tiled geometric stars accompanied by textural accents and modern ornaments. Best known as the artistic director of the Marta Maas Fjetterstrom workshop, Barbro Nilsson was a master of textile design, pattern and color. This evocative square carpet blends mod geometry with whimsical motifs and saturated maritime colors inspired by Nilsson’s seaside home. The precise patchwork-style tiles cleverly share adjacent pieces to form a perfectly symmetric repeating pattern. Colorful mid-century roundels and secondary eight-pointed stars appear in the central compartment and become a focus in the complementary borders. Subtle striped and stippled background segments in varying jewel-tone colors give this harmonious Scandinavian carpet exquisite texture and detail.
