Vintage Swedish Rug by Ingegerd Silow BB4944
Vintage Swedish Rug by Ingegerd Silow Description:
A Swedish Flat Weave Rug designed by Ingegerd Silow that has an interesting play on colorblocking and repeating a basic geometric shape that creates a silhouetted pattern. A nuetral gray and camel palette that is accented with a warm yellow and pastel green.
Although the designs of antique and vintage Scandinavian rugs were originally inspired by imported textiles, they gradually developed into an innately northern expression. Simple geometric patterns and vignettes from everyday life such as bouquets of flowers, a child's sampler or a pet dog were incorporated into flat woven tapestries or Swedish pile vintage style rugs and antique carpets, adding charm and immediacy to this folk art. A fresh and appealing aesthetic was sustained during the first half of the twentieth century by the weavings of the celebrated Swedish carpet designer Marta Maas-Fjetterstrom and her circle. The simplicity and purity of design in vintage Scandinavian rugs gives them an immediate relevance and contemporary desirability.
