Mid-Century Modern Scandinavian Flatweave Wool Rug BB4839 9'5" × 13'9" $28,000

One of the larger Swedish Flat Woven rugs in the collection, the present example has a light brown field beneath horizontal ivory stripes interrupted at defined intervals by minor triangular motifs all framed by a narrow red stripe.

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 rugs and 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 antique rugs nyc gives them an immediate relevance and contemporary desirability.
