Vintage Swedish Kilim by Ingegerd Silow, Country of Origin: Scandinavia, Circa Date: Mid-Twentieth Century – Here is a beautiful and exciting vintage carpet – a vintage Swedish kilim that was woven in Scandinavia during the middle years of the twentieth century with a comely design by noted Scandinavian designer Ingegerd Silow. A prolific and widely celebrated designer, Silow is admired for her beautiful Swedish rugs and carpets, which often feature distinct coloration and geometric floral detail work. This splendid Swedish carpet is a lovely expression of Silow’s unique and appealing style. The bright red tone of the field and the subtle floral details speak to her strengths as a designer. Indeed, the sheer simplicity of this carpet speaks to many of the finer trends of mid-century Scandinavian rug design. Because the filed is unadorned with detail elements, the remarkably bright red that defines the rug has an especially prominent voice. It also adds considerable contrast to the border, which appears as a series of puzzle-piece style floral details, interlocked in a rectangular band. A beautiful and deceptively simple composition, this vintage carpet by Ingegerd Silow is a lovely example.
