Märta Måås-Fjetterström “Carnation Tapestry Weave” BB6849 9'2" × 17'1" $80,000

This magnificent tapestry comes from the workshop of the Grand Dame of Swedish rugs – Marta Maas-Fjetterstrom. All designs created by this famed artists of worldwide reputability are widely sough-after by connoisseurs and laymen alike. The one we present is crème de la crème of all vintage rugs. It is not merely a rug, it is a splendid tapestry, gently hand-executed by a skilled weaver in accordance with traditional weaving techniques which ensure its quality and ever-lasting durability. The title of this one-of-a-kind piece reveals the secret which lies beneath its design. It is a pattern made up of carnation flowers represented by simple, geometric motifs. It is not surprising at all as the majority of Scandinavian rugs use the power which lies in simplicity to reflect the breathtaking natural surroundings of Scandinavia. The color palette is kept in dim autumnal shades such as walnut, taupe, carob and mocca with light touches of beige. Such an elegant and timeless composition, despite being made in the middle of the past century, will gracefully match even the most contemporary interiors, giving them a ton of timelessness. and nbsp;
