Vintage Swedish Rug by Elsa Guli Berg BB6062 7'0" × 10'3" $28,000
This circa-1940 vintage Swedish flat weave rug by Elsa Guli Berg features a whimsical all-over design of stylized geometric waves in varying shades of blue and small fish appearing throughout. The vintage carpet turns a common natural motif into linear abstraction for a unique, modernist look. In Sweden, carpets and rugs have been hand-knotted in wool for centuries, taking on many different forms and functions over the course of time. By the beginning of the twentieth century, the craft was seen as being an important artistic and cultural practice throughout Sweden, and designers began to make rugs that had a broad international appeal. Scandinavian rugs from the mid-twentieth century, endorsed by such fixtures of modernism as Le Corbusier, Ray Eames and Frank Lloyd Wright, remain among the most desirable and sought after in the rug world.
