Vintage Swedish Runner Rug Signed BICE, Origin: Sweden, Circa: Mid-20th Century – In recent years, interior decorators, designers, and other creative professionals have rediscovered the unique allure of mid-century aesthetics in a big way. The clean lines and general impression of simplicity and utility communicated by the finest mid-century pieces have become a rallying cry for those with a keen eye, and pieces like this fabulous mid-century Scandinavian rug are brilliant examples of the type of design that has generated such a following. This striking piece is characterized by a pallet of soft pastel colors, including light blues, pinks, and greens. Arranged in a grid-like structure that is not dissimilar to the way that pixels appear on a modern screen, these colors create the impression of a pastoral scene – of a vernal experience or episode, occurring outdoors in the warmth of spring. All of this is communicated in a subtle, abstract manner, using the bare minimum of detail in a charming vintage carpet. This absence of a clearly articulated subject matter invites the observer to form a personal relationship with the piece – surely the goal of any work of art.
