Vintage Swedish Rug by Ann great Sjoqvist, Origin: Sweden, Circa: Mid-20th Century – Designed by accomplished master weaver Anna Greta Sjoqvist, this vintage rug has a unique blend of modernism and classicism that is harmonious and packed full of Scandinavian charm. Sjoqvist re-imagines ancient right-angle weaving motifs in an original, modern way that incorporates distinct minimalist influences. Modular churn-dash boxes with crenellated outlines function as the primary motif and define the carpet’s stylistic theme. Soft hues of blushing pink, yellow, ivory and blue-green create a sophisticated Nordic color palette that embodies understatement and restraint. The cool jadeite field and outer borders provide a visual link that guides the eye toward the golden-yellow accents and blushing pink details that appear here and there. From the carefully selected colors to the continuity of the crenellated blocks, this exceptional design showcases Sjoqvist’s skills as a master weaver and designer.
