Vintage Swedish Flat Weave, Country of Origin: Scandinavia, Circa: Middle Part of the 20th Century – Here is a fascinating, breath-taking Mid-Century Modern rug – a Scandinavian vintage Swedish kilim rug that was designed and woven by the accomplished rug makers of Sweden. This hypnotic, dynamic composition is characterized primarily by its fascinating color pallet, which channels a powerful energy. Shades of green, yellow, blue, red, white and black intermingle in an intriguing way, each color bringing out something different in the other. Difficult to interpret any one way, this rug features a curious pattern with multiple areas that may serve as the primary focal point. If one examines the series of five diamond-shaped figures that run vertically up and down the center of the carpet, one can trace the energy of the piece working from the middle outward, with the traditionally Swedish geometric floral elements serving as border details to the central diamonds. One may also view the energy as moving from the outside in, irking up to the diamond shapes in the center. Irrespective of orientation, this is a beautiful Swedish rug, both traditional and modern at the same time, riddled with cultural depth.
