Vintage Swedish Salerno Blue flatweave carpet by Barbro Nilsson BB6465 7'8" × 10'7" $29,000
Just one look at this graceful vintage Swedish flat weave area rug is enough to recognize the hand of the master. Created by the great Barbro Nilsson in the famous workshop of Marta Maas Fjetterstrom, the vintage area rug constitutes the quintessence of the mid-20th century Scandinavian design. Its main field is occupied by repetitive triangle and rhombus motifs encircling twelve polygons divided by a line of diamonds.
Everything is enclosed within a single border with a repeated sequence of three stripes. Geometric and simplistic, the design is enhanced thanks to a masterfully composed color palette, based on extremely elegant Salerno blue accompanied by ivory, mauve and dusty yellow. The pattern and the colors together form a lovely composition, very much in line with contemporary decorating standards. This vintage Swedish rug is exceptional also due to its impeccable execution. Aptly hand-knotted of the finest wool in accordance with old and refined weaving techniques, the flat-weave is distinguished by remarkable durability which allowed it to survive until present day in excellent condition. If properly cared for, the Swedish antique carpet will serve its owners for many years without any signs of wear, introducing homely atmosphere and outstanding chic provided by the Scandinavian aesthetic thought.
