Swedish Flatweave by Märta Måås-Fjetterström BB6014 5'6" × 6'8"
A Mid-Century Swedish rug by Marta Maas-Fjetterström. She was a true master of her craft, and this rug demonstrates her capabilities in design. Set against a dark background of charcoal-greys and earthy-browns, a complex intersecting network of red diamond shapes is divided in alternating rows. Ivory accents thoughout and a mostly ivory border add even more drama to the overal design. In Sweden, carpets and rugs have been hand-knotted in wool for centuries, taking on many different forms and functions over the course of time. By the beginning of the twentieth century, the craft was seen as being an important artistic and cultural practice throughout Sweden, and designers began to make rugs that had a broad international appeal. Scandinavian rugs from the mid-twentieth century, endorsed by such fixtures of modernism as Le Corbusier, Ray Eames and Frank Lloyd Wright, remain among the most desirable and sought after in the rug world.
