Vintage Swedish Rya Runner Rug, Origin: Sweden, Circa: Mid-20th Century – Here is an energetic and vibrant vintage carpet – a Swedish Rya rug, woven in Scandinavia during the middle decades of the twentieth century. A bold and exciting composition, this mid-century carpet beautifully communicates some of the finer and more important facets of that aesthetic school. Most especially, this carpet features a highly abstract and imaginative composition, consisting of various intermingling shades of orange and ivory. Dark orange horizontal bands occur at irregular intervals throughout the carpet, effectively portioning it off into sections. Further, there are comments on the texture of the carpet throughout, with the additional detail work that appears in certain fairer bands of orange creating the illusion of a denser pile. The abstract and imaginative nature of this carpet is informed also by geometry, a common player in mid-century design. Delightfully modern and imaginative, this mid-century Scandinavian rya is an exciting and alluring example.
