Stylish Vintage Pile Scandinavian Marta Maas Gyllenrutan Gron Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Vintage Scandinavian Rugs, Circa Date: 1940’s – Woven in both pile and kilim / flat weave techniques, this idealistic vintage carpet signed by Marta Maas Fjetterstrom, embodies the mid century zeitgeist. This  beautiful Marta Maas Gyllenrutan green color rug boasts a minimalist tile design that use texture and soft colors to develop patterns in an entirely new way.

Subtly decorated strap work sashes partition the soft green colored field into individual window compartments. These windows or square patterns create a repeating pattern of tonal stripes distributed across adjacent squares. The careful color placement, minute decorations and variegated shading come together to create a classically modern pattern of crisp square tiles that feature a warm vintage palette of earthy yellows and browns. Limited colors, patterns and motifs produce a harmonious and refined design that makes this mid century Swedish rug a beautiful testament to the principle of less is more.

While at first glance, it seems like this vintage rug was woven using simple color, nothing can be further from the truth. This is due to subtle color variations that are present throughout the entire piece. If you look closely, you will start to see just how many times the weaver must have changed colors or event blended a few yarns together to achieve this highly artistic effect.

This approach to design and weave is something that only the most skilled textile designers can achieve.  This dichotomy is something that we do see in the best examples of vintage Scandinavian rugs.

The simplistic feel combined with the soft soothing colors, make this a truly wonderful piece. It is easy to incorporate in many different interior design approaches. From minimalist interiors to classically designed decors, this vintage pile Scandinavian Marta Maas Gyllenrutan Gron rug is an easy choice to make.
