Magnificent Vintage Marta Maas Scandinavian Salerno Rug by Barbro Nilsson, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Scandinavia Rug, Circa Date: Mid – 20th Century – This magnificent vintage Marta Maas Scandinavian rug by Barbro Nilsson is an intricate piece of textile art with a markedly modern aesthetic. The design itself, which is called Salerno, is one of the most recognizable and desirable of all the Barbaro Nilsson design rugs.
This vintage rug features beautiful geometric shapes of rectangles and triangles. The colors are rendered with remarkable uniformity and precision, and its pale hues of cream and silvery beige contrast beautifully with the accents of rich brown and purple that embellish all four edges of the carpet.
The rectangular shape of this Scandinavian rug creates a sense of majestic royalty, but this strong effect is paired nicely with the softer impressions of the surface design. The intricate cream triangle figures are illustrated on the fifteen long, slender strips that run vertically down the length of the carpet within the encapsulating border strand.
The central rectangle design in the field of this magnificent Scandinavian Salerno rug features ten symmetrical squarish shapes. Each one of these squares contain alternating and uniquely composed shades of brown, beige, light blueish purple and gray.
This center element stands out distinctly from the rest of the rug’s design. That sad, the field design does not interrupt the flow of the vertical strands. The artistic unity that is created by this marvelous relic is truly fascinating.
This beautiful vintage Marta Maas Scandinavian Salerno rug by Barbro Nilsson is characterized by precisely intricate details and soft colors. The distinctly vintage mid century modern vibe of this piece is rarely matched.
This exciting and highly decorative Scandinavian Salerno rug will add a special appeal and charming elegance to any pretty much any interior design space.
