Vintage Swedish Kilim by Marta Maas Fjetterstrom, Country of Origin: Sweden, Circa Date: Mid 20th Century — Featuring a combination of checkers, geometric shapes, and stripes, this vintage, Mid Century modern rug, from Sweden presents perfect symmetry that draws attention to its oceanic design. This vintage Swedish kilim, by the iconic Marta Maas Fjetterstrom, utilizes a cool variety of colors consisting of sea greens, mature teals, Aegean blues, and earthy ferns. These colors are further grounded by slate gray and accented by hints of crisp ivory. The viewer’s eye naturally tracks the progress of the checkered pattern, drawing the attention to the center quadrant before taking notice of the alternating triangles that make up the larger sea-colored checkers. This is a truly great great textile art piece by one of the most collectible, if not, the most collectible, of all the Swedish and Scandinavian rug weavers – Marta Maas Fjetterstrom!
