Vintage Swedish Scandinavian Kilim Rug, Country of Origin: Sweden, Circa Date: Mid 20th Century – Following a Gustavian model of elegance, this charming vintage Swedish kilim displays a wonderful assortment of complementary floral motifs that have an airy, delicate lightness. Flat-weave textures, natural variations and handcrafted details add to the stylistic richness of this prototypical Scandinavian rug. The soft oatmeal-gray field displays mottled color variations and striated flat-weave textures that become a neutral meadow-like background for the delicate leaflets that dot the field. These charming motifs are echoed in the complementary inner borders and outer borders where they’re depicted in subtle alternating colorways. The continuity of the softly colored trefoils is interrupted by the warm wood-tone outer frame and the light main borders, which feature undulating vines emblazoned with floral triads rendered in blushing pinks and clear azure blues that are wonderfully restrained.
