Vintage Swedish Flat Weave Rug

Price: $8,000

The remarkable power of Scandinavian design and its international success are largely based upon three crucial factors – simplicity, practicality and beauty. This vintage Swedish flat-woven antique rug is the embodiment of these ideals and a flagship example of the fine northern craft. The first thing which catches the eye and grabs the heart is the masterfully composed color palette, evoking the feel of tranquility and homeliness, based upon delicate pastel shades of chestnut and walnut brown, light gray, off-white and beige, complemented by subtle touches of dusty green, pink and blue.

The colors are inscribed into a minimalistic design – the main field carries an allover pattern of squares, surrounded by striped borders with gentle geometric motifs, finished with a lovely fringe at the shorter edges of the vintage rug shop which emphasizes the rustic character of the composition. Next to the charming appearance, the vintage flat-weave rug is distinguished by impeccable execution. It was thoroughly hand-woven of the finest wool in accordance with traditional techniques by a skilled artisan which allowed it to survive until this day in excellent condition.

If properly maintained, the Swedish rug will serve its owner for generations without any signs of wear, and adorn their households with the timeless elegance of Scandinavian artistry.
