Vintage Swedish flat weave (bla leden) by Marta Maas Fjetterstrom Description:
This elegan flat-weave area rug features a repeating pattern with sophisticated colors and uncompromising Orientalist details. Fjetterstrom's global influences are revealed in the impeccably styled borders and end pieces, which display crenellated zigzag patterns and reciprocating keystones filled with angular ram's horns. These beautifully styled motifs maintain the handsome brown and burgundy color scheme and captivating stepped contours that define the field. Decorative hash-mark stripes run through strongly colored tiles and travel across the intricately patterned field, creating secondary patterns and shapes that have a stone like tile effect.
