SWEDISH FLAT WEAVE RUNNER BY SVERKER GREUHOLM BB6664 3'4" × 10'1" $6,000

Simple yet absolutely charming, this Swedish flat-weave runner created by Sverker Greuholm is a paragon of Scandinavian craft. Its field features a classic northern geometric design rendered in a playful yet properly toned color palette of rose, off-white and slate, complemented by dusty yellow, pastel blue, light gray and camel. Carefully hand-woven of high-quality wool, the piece is distinguished by firm structure and durability. If properly cared for, the Swedish runner rug will have a chance to bring in a breath of fresh energy to a wide variety of décors without any signs of wear for many years of usage.

Vintage area rugs for the western market were originally made in countries such as India, Persia and Turkey. As the industrial revolution created a new merchant class, antique Scandinavian area rugs crossword were a sought-after status symbol demonstrating wealth and good taste. Watch any period film set in the late 19th or early 20th centuries and you will almost certainly see an oriental antique rug on the floor.
