Vintage Swedish Carpet by Marta Maas Fjetterstrom 48443
Vintage Swedish Carpet by Marta Maas Fjetterstrom, Country of Origin: Scandinavia, Circa date: Mid-20th Century – Here is a beautifully woven rug that relaxes the eyes with its gentle pastel colors and pleasing patterns. Set against a background of blue-green, complex geometric shapes are arranged in grid patterns with rotating colors that switch between variations of blues, yellows, and pinks. The Swedish rug makes interesting use of slight asymmetries in pattern, with the occasional introduction of unique colors and shapes to break up uniform repetition. Marta Maas Fjetterstrom was truly a master of her craft, and this rug demonstrates her capabilities in design to their extent. She has brilliantly communicated the essentials of carpet design with subtle grace. This carpet is a lovely example of the Kilim style, and stands on its own as a pleasing and relaxing composition.
