Doris Leslie Blau Collection Swedish Skvattram Style Rug N12324 7'9" × 9'1" $14,000
This imposing geometric area rug is the quintessence of the Scandinavian craft in a contemporary edition. The design is inspired by a vintage mid century rug created by Märta Måås-Fjetterström in 1938. She was a true artist who revolutionized the Swedish textile tradition through her studio in Båstad. Her highly collectible designs are inspired by nature, antique oriental rugs, and ancient Scandinavian textiles. The Skvattram rugs feature all-over geometric motifs rendered in a soft ivory pile against a dark flatweave background which creates an intriguing contrast.
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.
