Vintage Swedish Kilim by Barbro Spinchorn, Origin: Scandinavia, Circa: Mid-Twentieth Century—Here is a lovely vintage carpet—a vintage Swedish kilim that was woven in Scandinavia during the middle years of the twentieth century with an alluring design composed by noted rug designer Barbro Spinchorn. A prolific mid-century Scandinavian rug designer, Spinchorn is celebrated for her lovely rugs and carpets, many of which showcase the finest developments of mid-century design. This particular Swedish carpet is a wonderful representation of Spinchorn’s style, especially in its treatment of geometric floral details. One of the most important trends in mid-century Scandinavian rug design involves reinterpreting traditional, classical carpet compositions in the context of contemporary design sensibilities. The result of this development is a large body of rugs and carpets that feature the traditional carpet format of a clear border surrounding a clear field, but with notable modern twists. In the case of this carpet, the border is a simple band of grey, decorated with outsized and slightly abstract geometric floral details, while the field is a simple expanse of yellow. A beautifully designed work, this vintage Scandinavian carpet by Barbro Spinchorn is a compelling example.
