Mid-20th Century Swedish Brown, Yellow Flat-Weave Rug Signed by Ingegerd Silow BB6542 5'5" × 7'8" $8,000
Ingegerd Silow is considered to be one of the most influential figures in Swedish carpet making and for a good reason. Not only was she a talented weaver, but also a great lover of local art. Her legacy lives on in exquisite Scandinavian style rugs such as this one. Woven circa 1950, the carpet has Silow’s signature in the corner like a badge of honor. From color to pattern, every single one of its elements seems to be in a perfect balance with each other. The vintage looking rugs design features a very interesting mix – while the central field is rather empty with just a few small crosses, the border immediately draws the eye with its rich decorations. It is further emphasized by a delicate fringe placed at the antique oriental rugs top and bottom edge. The color palette is composed of warm, earthy tones of brown and beige with hints of black and orange.
