Mid-20th Century Swedish Pink, Purple Flat-Weave Carpet BB6337 5'4" × 8'3" $12,000
This astonishing Scandinavian area rug can be described using only two words: elegant and feminine. Flat woven using the best quality wool, it catches the attention thanks to the subtle and very charming color palette. Artisan used cotton candy pink as the background for the pattern and enhanced it with coral red, lavender and green. Such a mix of hues makes the whole composition very balanced and peaceful at the same time.
The carpet’s design is simple and minimalistic, as expected of Swedish craft. Several horizontal lines and two vertical ones mark the pattern’s main part. However, the real point of interest are the eighteen geometrical figures, acting as a frame limiting the whole. Decorated with ray-like shapes they look like precious jewels accidentally left on this vintage carpet. The flat weave techniqu, allows the antique rug to be used on both sides, making it a beautiful and practical choice.
