Vintage Swedish Salerno Red flatweave carpet by Barbro Nilsson BB6423 7'5" × 11'0" $25,000
This lovely vintage Swedish flat-weave comes from the hands of the great Barbro Nilsson, a close friend and a business partner of the Grande Dame of Scandinavian design Marta Maas-Fjetterstrom. Her artistry and temperate yet utterly elegant style, so characteristic to the northern aesthetics, are visible at first glance. The first fiddle in this simplistic composition is played by color. Warm Salerno red hue prevails in the main field and the border as the setting, accompanied by delicate touches of ivory, purple taupe, brown and pale yellow, in which the minimalistic pattern is made. This exceptional flat-woven rug is not only impeccable in terms of appearance but also execution. As every rug from Marta Maas-Fjetterstrom’s workshop, this one was masterfully hand-woven of the first-rate wool in accordance with centuries-long weaving techniques by a skilled artisan. Thanks to such thorough making, this Swedish carpet has survived until this day and will serve its lucky owners for generations without any signs of blemish. It is an example of the marvelous Scandinavian art at its finest. The flat-woven rug will easily fit into any contemporary interior arrangement, bringing in the vibrancy of its Salerno red hue and the effortless elegance of Nilsson’s style.
