Mid-20th Century Double Sided Mustard Yellow Swedish Flat-Weave Wool Rug BB6426 5'4" × 7'10" $10,000
This lovely vintage flat-weave is equally beautiful and practical in a genuinely northern way. At first glance one may see that the vintage carpet is deeply embedded into Scandinavian aesthetics which means that it builds upon simple geometric motifs, pastel color palette and the power of simplicity. It also stays true to the ideals of Scandinavian philosophy shaped in the mid-20th century which assumes that utilitarian objects should be possibly the most affordable, functional and qualitative.
The Swedish carpet’s main field is covered with an allover pattern of serrated rectangles in two sizes with gently outlined horizontal stripes and a trimming lace at the shorter opposite sides. The design is maintained in a sandy beige palette with variations in saturation, from very light to almost mustard. However, the design of this Swedish flat-woven antique carpet is not limited solely to the appearance but it also encompasses the usability.
The Scandinavian carpet was masterfully hand-knotted of the finest wool in accordance with old and refined weaving techniques by a skilled artisan which allowed it to survive until this day without any signs of wear. The vintage carpet is reversible which even further extends its lifespan and ensures that it will serve its owners for generations. Such versatile composition is going to match all kinds of interior décors, from classic to modern.
