Midcentury Swedish Pink, Blue and Gray Flat-Weave Wool Rug BB6578 5'6" × 7'8" $4,000
While many people think that beauty of vintage Swedish rug lies in their pattern, they could not be more mistaken. The pattern itself is important, but how it works with the color palette and other elements of the composition is where the true charm of Swedish rugs lies. This particular antique carpet, woven circa 1950 is a great example of what Scandinavian weaving can achieve.
The pattern might seem simple, but a closer look reveals the skills and genius hidden within. The central field was intentionally left blank so that the whole could be anchored with decorated border. There we can see simplified depictions of poppies in full bloom, accompanied by circles. The color palette comprises of gentle shades of pink, blue and green with some elements of gray. Delicate fringe at the top and bottom part of the vintage carpet is a nice finishing touch that Scandinavian carpet aficionados will surely appreciate.
