Vintage Kilim by Britta Swefors, Country of Origin: Sweden, Circa Date: Mid 20th Century — Simple, refined hues and shapes set the tone throughout this carpet from Sweden. The elegant contrast and gradient present together create a definitive range of motion, leading the viewer’s eye from the edges outside of the carpet’s center to its middle. A navy blue series of triangles, their points facing inward, creates a distinct border around the work, with the entire setting connected by diamonds that nestle between the triangles. Lighter azure blues shift into gentle pinks and creamy peaches, and all of the colors slowly become a brighter and cleaner white as they draw closer to the center.
