Beautiful Long And Narrow Vintage Rakel Callander Scandinavian Swedish Kilim Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Scandinavia Rug, Circa Date: Mid – 20th Century – This beautiful vintage Swedish kilim rug by Rakel Callander is an elegant and impressive Scandinavian carpet. The sophisticated charm of this vintage mid century carpet is created by its distinguished symmetry and skillful color schemes.
The markedly contemporary and decorative appeal of this Swedish kilim rug is a testament to the beautiful artistic creativity of its creator, the iconic Rakel Callander. Its decorative vintage mid century impact flows from the use of neutral colors and simple large scale geometric shapes.
This powerful fusion of vintage vibes, modernist designs and decorative earth tomes, makes this flat woven kilim rug a quite yet impactful addition to any room. It is obviously not solely a comfortable area rug but a truly timeless piece of textile art.
The main large scale designs of field elements beautifully juxtapose against light taupe / beige hues of the background.
The light rectangular background color cuts into the darker brown border. In addition, small white squares serve to hem these gaps and embellish areas inside the newly form rectangles.
Twenty one octagons in uniform sizes but alternating colors occupy the rectangular centerpiece in gracefully long rows. These octagons are rendered in neutral tones and are occupied with uniform squares of different colors such as charcoal, light cream and soft brown.
The two short ends of the Swedish kilim rug are hemmed with a thin speckled looking border. Upon closer examination, we notice that the speckled is created by small lines in light taupe / beige that were drawn out perpendicular to darker brown lines. These altering colors are what create the curious geometrical and even multidimensional impression.
This gorgeous relic will beautifully compliment any interior decorated space with its smooth elegance, modern aesthetics, and subtle vintage charm.
