Vintage Swedish Carpet by Birgitta Soderkvist 48451
Vintage Carpet by Birgitta Soderkvist, Sweden, Mid 20th Century — True to its Swedish roots, the carpet features a minimalist design that relies on subtle movements and vibrant colors to create depth and character. A single thick, stormy gray border surrounds the cerulean center of the carpet, the two colors complementing each other to create a uniform serenity. Multiple, brightly colored boxes line the inside of the border, each individual square colored differently, with hues ranging from royal purples to grapefruit reds. Zig-zagging white triangles line the left and right sides within the boxes, adding a degree of contrast and activity to the pleasing piece.
