Scandinavian Vintage Swedish Kilim Rug, Country Of Origin: Sweden, Circa Date: Early 20th Century – This beautiful and stark antique rug – an Art Deco piece made in Sweden during the early years of the twentieth century – is truly an achievement in rug-making. This exciting piece possesses many of the qualities most sought after by collectors of such rugs, and would make a proud addition to any home. At once strikingly modern yet traditional, this lovely Swedish tapestry rug or Rollakan has a design of stylized geometric forms arranged in horizontal stripes of champagne, cinnamon, and apricot. The subtle juxtapositions and contrasts of color are complemented by the simplicity of the designs – volutes, scrolls, and S-forms arrayed in horizontal repetition. All in all, this is a piece that is not to be missed. Its modern design and traditional composition make it not only a highly desirable piece, but a genuine work of art. The Art Deco movement, which peaked during the early decades of the twentieth century, was a hugely important shift that affected just about every field of art and design. Wonderfully inventive pieces such as this Art Deco vintage carpet are the result of this important shift.
