Vintage Swedish Kilim, Origin: Sweden, Circa: 1950 – This stunning mid-century vintage rug showcases a striking assortment of modular geometric motifs rendered in a sumptuous selection of wood-tone colors and flaxen yellows. The formal composition depends on weighted borders, which frame a softly colored argyle field that recedes into the background. Strong geometric borders feature crenellated sconces sandwiched between split lozenges that are accented with bold tonal stripes. The undulating turrets and streamlined geometric figures on this Swedish rug have an art deco elegance and mid-century style that balances glamour and grace. Like Scandinavia’s reserved craftsman designs and the sleek looks pioneered by Carl Malmsten, this striking signed rollaken strikes an idyllic balance between modern and classic that is equally suitable for mid-century interiors and sleek arts and crafts decor that dominated trends in the early 20th century.
