Vintage Scandinavian Rug, Origin: Scandinavia – This ingenious, color-rich creation combines geometric linear shapes with high-chroma colors, pictographic ornaments and surface patterns that create fantastic textural effects. Sweeping lines superimposed over compartmental cells create a marvelous pattern of diamond-shaped tiles that are balanced and perfectly symmetric. Creative intersections lead to bold transitions in the color choices and exquisite stripes, speckles, stippled dots and surface patterns that give the rectilinear figures another dimension – an attention to detail that vaults this piece to the upper echelons of vintage rugs. Warm jewel tones, including varied hues of cerise, mulberry, raspberry, crimson and citrine, dance across adjacent tiles in precise combinations that have optimal contrast. The modernity and strength of the high-chroma composition on this Scandinavian rug is augmented by whimsical spirals and circular pictograms that provide additional interest while retaining the holistic sense of balance, which gives this vibrant vintage Scandinavian carpet its alluring appearance and bold presence.
