Mid-20th Century Geometric Blue, Green, Grey Rug by Birgitta Solderkvist “Bs” BB6559 5'1" × 8'3" $6,000
This absolutely mesmerizing and heart-gripping Swedish flat – woven vintage rug created by Brigitta Solderkvist constitutes the essence of Scandinavian design. Beautiful, simplistic and qualitative, the piece is a fine example of the northern craft. Its main field is left absolutely plain, without any pattern, however the thick border, decorated with octagonal medallions inspired by the beauty of Swedish nature, makes up for the inner austerity.
The composition’s rustic character is further underlined thanks to a delightful fringe at the shorter edges of the vintage rug. The cherry on top of the design is the masterfully composed color palette, incorporating versatile and fashionable shades of pale and pastel blue, light gray and off-white with touches of mustard and dusty yellow. Next to graceful appearance, the vintage flat-woven antique rug is characterized by impeccable execution.
Thoroughly hand-woven of the finest wool in accordance with traditional techniques by the expert artisan, the flat-weave has survived until this day with no signs of wear or damage which is the best confirmation of its quality. If properly maintained, it will serve its owners for generations, bringing in the never-passing elegance of Scandinavian design.
