Vintage Swedish Rug by Ingegerd Silow BB4944 6'6" × 9'5" $26,000
The history of Swedish rugs is full of extraordinary individuals, who managed to revolutionize not only local, but also global craft with their original ideas and fresh approach to the subject. Ingegerd Silow was one of such people. Born and raised in Stockholm, Silow immediately proved her huge potential upon entering college and later on while working with one of the most famous designers and artists of Europe and – ultimately – the world. Vintage Swedish rugs designed by her are sought after by both art collectors and prestigious galleries. Silow became famous through her own hard work, love for traditional craft and impeccable taste. Despite the time that passed since her death, she continues to inspire countless young Swedish rug designers to follow her footsteps.
This unique vintage rug draws the eye with both its design and impeccable quality. It was hand woven by Ingegerd Silow herself in the mid 20th century, circa 1940. Rug’s pattern has an interesting play on color blocking and repeating a basic geometric shape that creates a silhouetted pattern. Astonishing symmetry of the pattern was achieved through hours of hard work and Silow’s great dedication. Neutral gray and camel palette is accented with a warm yellow and pastel green, a surprisingly modern mix considering rug’s age.
The size of this piece, 6’6″ × 9’5″ (198 × 287 cm), will make it a perfect addition to any living room or bedroom. Warm colors and vintage pattern of this Swedish rug will make your interior look truly inviting and special.
