Vintage Swedish Pile Rug by MMF Kullager Röd BB6115 10'8" × 14'4"
This circa-1940 vintage Swedish pile rug by Märta Måås-Fjetterström, titled “Kullager Röd,” features an elaborate all-over design of geometric abstractions, tiny white cross shapes and dense parallel lines against a field of rich red. The vintage carpet is a striking modernist statement. Måås-Fjetterström (1873-1941) was a leading figure in Swedish textile design, with a workshop known for producing well-composed rugs incorporating traditional Swedish and modern motifs. 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 remain among the most desirable and sought after in the rug world.
