Vintage Swedish Flat Weave Reversible Rug by Ingrid Dessau BB6154 5'2" × 7'6"
This circa-1940 vintage Swedish flat weave reversible rug by Ingrid Dessau features an interesting all-over design of geometric abstractions evocative of floral shapes in a blue that is just several shades lighter than the background. Two rows of significantly lighter colored abstractions frame the minimalist vintage carpet at both ends, relying on shape and color for its impact. In Sweden, carpets and rugs have been hand-knotted in wool for centuries, taking on many different forms and functions over the course of time. By the beginning of the twentieth century, the craft was seen as being an important artistic and cultural practice throughout Sweden, and designers began to make rugs that had a broad international appeal. Scandinavian rugs from the mid-twentieth century, endorsed by such fixtures of modernism as Le Corbusier, Ray Eames and Frank Lloyd Wright, remain among the most desirable and sought after in the rug world.
