Flat woven rugs are so universal that they appear in almost every culture in the world, from Turkey to Peru, but the most famous examples can be found in Sweden. Everyone can enjoy their beautiful patterns and stunning colors of Swedish rugs, but not as many people are aware of their fascinating history. Despite their shared sources of inspiration, mainly folklore and natural beauty, each vintage Swedish rug is unique, benefiting from the skills and creativity of individual weavers. The influence of Scandinavian weavers continues to have a tremendous impact on the contemporary global interior design trends. Vintage Swedish rugs still invoke homely feeling of vintage rugs accompanied by modern chic.
This stunning vintage rug was woven in the mid 20th century, circa 1940, by MLB. What certainly draws attention to it is beautiful all over pattern spread out on the pile. A symmetrical design of linear and geometric shapes looks surprisingly modern in spite of rug’s age. Color palette accompanying it features a composition of warm sunny colors, which can brighten up even the bleakest day. Lovely shades of yellow, sandy beige and brown work together in a perfect harmony, creating a perfectly balanced composition.
The size of this gorgeous vintage Swedish rug, 5’6″ × 8’0″ (168 × 244 cm), makes it a wonderful addition to any household or style, from traditional to modern. A rug which is not only beautiful, but also practical is a rare find, and this piece is definitely a treasure waiting to be discovered.
