Vintage Swedish Rug, Origin: Sweden – Exploring the art of simplicity and geometry, this vintage rug from Sweden is a modernist delight that pairs patchwork-style checkerboard blocks with micro-plaid segments that have a tantalizing op-art effect. Striated color variations in low-chroma hues subtly enliven the static micro pattern that divides the well-composed design. Linear end pieces bookend the composition and provide a tasteful conclusion that complements the understated aesthetic and modern composition. Juicy berry-tone blocks and dark squares form a marvelous checkerboard pattern that leverages the power of the flat-weave textures and variegated stripes they create. Mineralic jasper tones and dark midnight hues are expertly juxtaposed against rosy pink, periwinkle and mauve blocks that give the simplistic pattern another dimension. Finally, pictogram shapes in bright, contrasting colors embellish the game board surface on this Swedish rug in a lively, playful manner that’s decidedly contemporary.
