Vintage Scandinavian Swedish Rug by Brita Grahn 47668
This dynamic Swedish carpet is a fascinating modern composition with undertones of Swedish traditionalism.
Vintage Scandinavian Swedish Rug by Brita Grahn, Origin: Sweden, Circa: Mid-20th Century- Here is an intriguing vintage rug – a Scandinavian rug, woven and designed by the celebrated Swedish rug-makers of the mid-twentieth century. This dynamic and eye-catching piece, the design of which is attributed to the noted Brita Grahn, is primarily characterized by its sparse border and complex field. Indeed, the field possesses an especially grabbing design, in which a series of rectangular spaces are diagonally bifurcated from opposing corners, creating a series of V shapes, reminiscent, perhaps, of downward pointing arrowheads. Most interestingly is the mechanism through which this diagonal bifurcation occurs, a mechanism that consists of a series of small, diagonally stacked squares, brightly colored in yellow, green, or red. Radiating outward from the diagonal lines formed by these stacked squares is a tone that is either a paler or a darker shade of brown-grey – whichever contrasts more with the main square shape. Dynamic and exciting, this exemplary mid-century modern Swedish rug by Brita Grahn is a fascinating and enduringly appealing composition.
