Vintage Swedish Rya Runner Rug, Origin: Sweden, Circa: Mid-20th Century – Most especially, this vintage carpet features a highly abstract and imaginative composition, consisting of various intermingling shades of orange and ivory. Dark orange horizontal bands occur at irregular intervals throughout the Rya rug, effectively portioning it off into sections. Further, there are comments on the texture of the carpet throughout, with the additional detail work that appears in certain fairer bands of orange creating the illusion of a denser pile. The abstract and imaginative nature of this carpet is informed also by geometry, a common player in mid-century design. Delightfully modern and imaginative, this mid-century Scandinavian rya is an exciting and alluring example.
