Vintage Rugs and Antique Rugs in Denmark
Scandinavian design is one of the most widely sough-after in the world and for the better part of the century, Denmark, next to Sweden, has been the center of this incredible style. It was there, many of the fabulous Rya and Rollakan rugs were woven to take the world by storm with their irresistible look and incredible practicality. The history of Scandinavian floor coverings dates back to the Middle Ages, when the idea of weaving textiles was brought to the Baltic Sea by the Vikings. The first type that was created was named Rya. This shaggy, simplistic rug, maintained in a black-and-white color palette, was primarily used as a protection for the sailors against harsh atmospheric conditions in place of animal hides which were drastically less appealing and pleasurable to wear. Ryas were discovered by the mid-20th century Modernists who made it into an iconic accessory of the Mid-Century Modern décor. The other, probably even more recognizable type of Scandinavian carpets was formed at the dawn of the 20th century. We are talking here about the rollakan, a flat-woven, minimalistic yet absolutely charming rug which nowadays is an indispensible part of many decors, including Vintage, Contemporary and, certainly, Scandinavian. Many of antique rugs and vintage carpets from Denmark are regarded as works of art and exhibited in galleries around the globe.
Such profound heritage has definitely left an imprint on Danes who absolutely cherish the divine beauty and never-passing charm of antique rugs and vintage carpets. Doris Leslie Blau is committed to providing Denmark with only genuine, five-star goods, that will not prove a disappointed to the respectable shoppers.
