Vintage Swedish Scandinavian Rug by Gunilla Lagerhen Ullberg, Country of Origin: Sweden, Circa Date: Mid-20th Century – This vintage carpet features a sleek, modern black, white and primary-color pattern created by award-winning carpet designer Gunilla Lagerhem Ullberg. The endless ivory field is crisscrossed with kohl black lines that create a dense pattern of fenestrated rectangles. These stark achromatic hues are the perfect basis for a timeless modern design. Bold monochrome segments in red, blue, avocado green and lemon yellow divide the monumental field into manageable segments while providing a strong visual link through the repeated accent colors. Hash-mark end pieces provide the only exception in this understated mid-century modern design rug, which has a superb level of continuity and strong graphic features. This definitive mid-century runner rug reflects Ullberg’s popular style, which incorporates aspects of minimalism and modernism that are tied together by understatement.
