Mid-20th Century Geomatric Green, Yellow Swedish Flat-Weave Rug BB6572 5'4" × 8'2" $10,000
The immense power and international success of Scandinavian design derive from the fact that the style is based upon three major factors – practicality, simplicity and beauty— which only the northerners can combine with such effortless grace.
This vintage Scandinavian rug type crossword is the embodiment of these ideals and a fantastic example of fine Scandinavian craft. Its minimalistic design with a distinct rustic vibe incorporates a plain main field, surrounded by far more decorative yet properly balanced borders divided by a bold stripe of dark moss green into sections, each of which carries a lattice made up of geometric motifs, including squares and diamonds. The folkloristic aura is emphasized even further by a gentle fringe at the shorter edges of the vintage area rug.
This lovely composition is complemented by a color palette evocative of summer in full bloom, which relies on fresh tones of pale and moss green with off-white and invigorating touches of walnut brown, dusty orange and yellow. Masterfully hand-woven of the finest wool in accordance with traditional techniques by a skilled artisan, the antique carpet has survived until this day in perfect condition. If properly maintained, it will serve its owners for many years without any signs of wear, bringing in the warm and homely quality of Scandinavian artistry.
