Modern Salerno Swedish Rug N12354 12'3" × 17'10" $25,500
A reversible flatweave wool rug handmade by skilled artisans.
A flat-weave wool area rug handmade by skilled artisans. The design is inspired by a vintage rug by the well-known mid-century Swedish artist and weaver Barbro Nilsson. The composition alternates large and small geometric shapes in shades of cool blues and smoky greys, with yellow and burgundy accents, on an ivory background.
Barbro Nilsson became the director of the weaving workshop established by Märta Måås-Fjetterström in Sweden, in 1919. She continued her legacy upon her death, developing original patterns blending folk and traditional handicrafts with Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles.
The Salerno is a classic design that will never go out of style. The rug is in stock and can be made to order in other sizes as well.
Doris Leslie Blau carries an exceptional collection of modern rugs inspired by mid-century Swedish designs. We stay true to the legendary tradition of Scandinavian craftsmanship by hand-weaving flatweave wool Rölakan rugs and wool pile Rya rugs that are very close in looks and feel to the original ones. Contemporary hand-made rugs are a bridge throughout history, they are the fruit of the constant evolution of the weaving craft that has accompanied men since the dawn of civilization.
