Anything that comes from the hands of the great Marta Maas-Fjetterstrom is a little masterpiece and this vintage Swedish flat-weave is no different. Although made over 70 years ago, this remarkable rug is distinguished by absolutely impeccable condition which it owes to masterful execution by hand of the finest wool according to traditional weaving techniques in the renowned MMF workshop. However, excellent quality is only half of the carpet’s success. The other half is due to the minimalistic yet definitely timeless and tasteful design, deeply embedded into Scandinavian aesthetic thought. The main field, bearing uncomplicated diamond-like geometric motifs, is consistent with simple border patterns. The longer sides of the flat-woven rug repeat the main design whereas two shorter edges bring in a bit of a stir by transforming the rhombus-like motifs into oblique stripes coming together in the middle. This angular pattern is softened with also truly Scandinavian pastel color palette consisting of pale rosewood, dusty pink, indigo, brown and dusty yellow against the ivory background with delicate touches of brown. The Swedish flat-woven rug is the embodiment of class and never-passing charm of Marta Maas-Fjetterstrom’s ultimate artistry. It will easily fit into any kind of contemporary interior décor and enchant even the most demanding design aficionados.
