Vintage swedish flat weave Rug by Maj Swanstrom Description:
This circa-1940 vintage Swedish flat weave antique rug by Maj Swanstrom features an all-over design of geometric abstractions resembling stripes in shades of brown, green and yellow against a field of light brown. The vintage mid-century carpet makes for an elegant and modernist statement. In Sweden, carpets and vintage rugs for sale 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 for sale 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.
