Mid-20th century Swedish Yellow, Brown & Beige Flat-Weave Rug by Ingegerd Silow BB6538 6'6" × 9'3" $9,000
Those people interested in Swedish flat weave rugs have certainly heard of Ingegerd Silow. Not only was she a talented weaver, but also a great lover of her country’s art. Silow’s legacy lives on in numerous beautiful carpets, just like this one. Woven circa 1954, the rug immediately draws attention with its elegant design and distinctive color palette. In the center we can see something that was probably inspired by central medallions appearing in Vintage rugs.
Using classic geometric shapes the weaver was able to create a totally original creation, something that you won’t see in your everyday antique rug, but only in a true piece of art. In the corner we can see the signature of Silow, a silent sign of her approval. The color palette is composed of warm tones of brown and mustard yellow, highlighted by silvery gray and just a splash of beige.
