Vintage Swedish Pile Rug (Bla Rutor) by Marta Maas Fjetterstrom Description:
An early 20th century pile antique rug by famed designer Marta Maas Fjetterstrom. Traditional geometric Scandinavian design in green, red, yellow and brown.
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 oriental 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 vintage Scandinavian rugs gives them an immediate relevance and contemporary desirability.
