Vintage Scandinavian Rug 46856
With its sleek lines and minimalist composition, this vintage Scandinavian pile carpet shows why regional designs were at the forefront of the mid-century movement.
Vintage Scandinavian Rug, Origin: Scandinavia, Circa: Mid 20th Century – This handsome vintage rug from Scandinavia embodies the perfect harmony and stylistic duality of mid-century modern designs. The minimalist composition has poise and sophistication with modern elements that are formal yet contemporary. The tiled rectilinear medallion with its supportive borders is simplistic on the surface yet is rendered with a classical level of precision. Sharp right-angle tiles, angular S-hooks, curving roundels, hash-mark stripes and rich solid tones explore and compare a complete variety of shapes and textures without losing the alluring sense of minimalism and restraint. Bright azure and mustard decorations provide tonal parity in the border and boxy medallion while offsetting the stunning sapphire-colored ground and smoky gunmetal borders. Carefully planned odd-even combinations, alternating colors and pleasing proportions give this vintage Scandinavian rug a timeless modernity.
