Vintage Swedish Flatweave Signed SH (Svensk Hemslöjd) BB6122 5'8" × 8'8"
This circa-1940 vintage Swedish flat weave rug by Svensk Hemslöjd, signed SH, features an all-over design of geometric abstractions in shades of red against a field of black, with a thin gray border. The stark simplicity evokes images of machinery and precision, in keeping with the vintage carpet’s modernist style. 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.(SOLD)
