Vintage Scandinavian Swedish Kilim Runner by Rakel Callander 49133, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Scandinavian Rugs, Circa Date: 1950’s – Like many traditional Swedish kilim runners, this masterpiece features only two lines that act as primary borders. Light khaki and coffee brown dance around each other in a series of zig-zagging shapes, rendered in tiny cubes. The strong use of angles and lines in this impressive vintage rug results in a grounding border that manages to elegantly contain the expanse of sandy tones between the two frames. This expanse brings to mind images of sand and sun, and the resulting vista is almost like a brilliant desert, promising to lead the viewer to an unforgettable oasis within.
