A vintage Swedish Rug by Marta Maas-Fjetterstrom, this circa-1950s piece features soft greens, pinks and blues in sharp geometric designs against a light beige field. Evocative of various tribal traditions, this modernist vintage Scandinavian carpet is a rare and elegant work. One of the most important figures in the history of Scandinavian rug-making, Maas-Fjetterstrom was a mid-twentieth century rug designer whose pieces are among the most noteworthy rugs ever designed. Working from 1919 until her death in 1941, Maas-Fjetterstrom focused on creating rugs that communicated the intimacy of the natural world through a modernist approach to lines and geometric figures. With pieces in some of the most exclusive art museums in the world and an enduring reputation in the design world more than 70 years after her death, Maas-Fjetterstrom's accomplishments illustrate the importance of vintage Scandinavian rugs.
