Vintage Swedish Rug Signed Ulla Parkdal, Origin: Sweden, Circa: Mid 20th Century—Designed by the legendary Ulla Parkdal, this vintage rug from Scandinavia is an understated statement piece that is classical and exceptionally modern. This sleek angular design highlights Parkdal’s strong minimalist tendencies that earned her a spot among the upper echelon of Scandinavia’s talented designers and master weavers. The graphic border-centric composition focuses on a series of carefully placed dovetail end pieces, stepped lozenges and square tiles that form a complex counterchange pattern with crisp, clean angles. Somber loden accent pieces, earthy ochre tiles and warm bole brown hues give the composition a harmonious grounded style much like craftsman works that highlight organic colors and feature inviting natural materials that create a living design environment or a textile language that Parkdal saw and cultivated in her own work.
