Vintage Swedish Carpet by Marta Maas Fjetterstrom, Origin: Scandinavia, Circa: Mid-20th Century – This vintage Scandinavian Kilim rug is an enticing and crisply woven composition, designed by Marta Maas Fjetteerstrom in Scandinavia during the middle years of the twentieth century. Demonstrating a striking pattern of shapes and color, this composition is highly representative of certain trends prevalent in mid-20th century design, such as its simple and direct format, in which a series of descending shapes form a pattern that leads the eye across the body of the rug. The dark and subdued hues of purples, greens, and blues are interspersed by shades of white and black that instill a sense of dark coolness. The carpet is a lovely example of the format, and is an artfully executed composition.
