Mid-20th Century Swedish Hand Knotted Wool Rug in Green, Beige, Orange, Brown BB4789 8'7" × 11'2" $22,000
When it comes to Swedish rugs, few carpets can rival their charm and high quality. No wonder that vintage Swedish rugs are as sought after by art collectors! Even nowadays their patterns, often inspired by traditional Swedish crafts, dazzle with effortless elegance. However, what makes vintage Scandinavian rugs so special is not how they look, but how deeply rooted they are in Swedish culture and tradition. Something as unique could only be created in the place where old traditions are still being practiced and respected. Designs of Swedish rugs invoke a familiar feeling of warmth, which can make even the coldest interiors look homely and inviting.
This stunning vintage Scandinavian rug was woven in the mid 20th century, circa 1940. Comparing to most Swedish rugs its design seems very minimalistic, however, this is balanced out by an exceptionally rich color palette. Lively shades of red and orange are contrasted with subdued green and beige, resulting in a wonderful composition. The pattern of this vintage rug features an open field framed by an elegant Art Deco border, decorated by a Greek Key design. Geometric form of the pattern looks surprisingly modern, considering the rug’s actual age.
The size of vintage Swedish rug, 8’7″ × 11’2″ (262 × 340 cm), makes it a great choice for any type of interior. If you want to experience the ultimate luxury, be sure to browse through Doris Leslie Blau’s collection of both antique rugs and vintage carpets.
