Vintage Swedish Gul randig med tvist flatweave carpet by Barbro Nilsson BB6445 4'0" × 7'3"
This lovely flat-woven rug embodies the finest ideals of Scandinavian design. It was made by the icon of the northern craft Barbro Nilsson, who was also a close friend and associate of the great Marta Mass-Fjetterstrom. The name of this high-quality flat weave – “Gul Randig Med Tvist”— may be translated as “yellow stripes with a twist” which quite accurately reflects the humble yet heartwarming and, in a sense, ingenious face of this Swedish rug. Its simplistic design encompasses stripes in different toned hues with the prevalence of the titular dusty yellow shade, accompanied by green, beige, slate gray and off-white. This uncomplicated pattern is finished with an elegant, thickly-woven, off-white lace at the shorter sides and a stripe of oyster color at the longer edges. As befits a creation of Barbro Nilsson, this flat-weave beauty was masterfully hand-executed of the first-rate wool in accordance with old and refined weaving techniques which ensures its longevity and never-fading grace. This mesmerizing and durable flat-woven Swedish rug has a chance to enrich any décor, from classic to contemporary.
