Vintage Swedish RYA Rug BB6395 4'5" × 8'6" $7,000
Since the first half of the 20th century Scandinavian rugs have been the apple of the eye of modernist tastemakers and designers. This vintage pile weave comes exactly from the moment of Swedish rugs’ greatest glory. Its style – Rya – derives from the earliest type of Northern rugs that where modeled on natural animal fur and developed in order to protect people, especially the mariners living off the sea, from the harsh climatic conditions. In terms of shagginess and softness of the pile, Ryas are practically second to none. This one is masterly hand-executed of the finest wool in accordance with old and refined techniques, reaching back to the middle ages. Yet, its pattern is completely settled in the 50s’ aesthetic standards. Geometric motifs such as stripes and circles create simple but striking design, further enhanced by the pronounced color palette. The sapphire background bears black and pastel blue stripes along with emerald circles. Everything is finished with touches of light brown and invigorating lemon green. This modernistic vintage Swedish rya rug will be a vibrant addition to any contemporary abode.
