Vintage Swedish Rug by Karen Jonsson, Origin: Sweden, Circa: Mid-20th Century – Here is a comely vintage carpet – a Swedish kilim that was woven in Scandinavia during the middle years of the twentieth century, with a composition designed by noted Swedish designer Karen Jonsson. This mid-century kilim features a design that represents some of the finest trends in Swedish rug production, including a traditional pattern and detail work rendered in complementary tones. During the middle years of the twentieth century, a new aesthetic began to dominate the art and design world, with abstract and geometric designs coming into favor. In Sweden, this development was not only accepted, but fully embraced. Carpets such as this piece began to come into production, with designs that were both reminiscent of traditional rugs and kilims and decidedly modern at the same time. Here, a simple border and field dichotomy is achieved with contrasting shades of brown. While the field is populated with a series of large geometric figures, the field is simply decorated with horizontal stripes and small geometric details. The overall impression is one of calm and balance. Signed by Karen Jonsson on the lower horizontal border.
