Vintage Swedish Half-Pile Rug, Circa: 1945, Origin: Sweden, mid-20th century vintage Swedish half pile rug. This extraordinary carpet is made using mixed techniques. It combines flat wave and pile rug together. Flat parts of the weave, forming the background, are colored beige. Fibers protruding above the surface of the background are in the color of sand. The border of the carpet creates a double frame in the same thickness on all four sides. The central part of the carpet is divided into two symmetrical rectangles by a vertical line - the axis of the whole composition. Those rectangles are decorated with coiled lines reminiscent the theme of the maze - what makes the whole thing very subtle and intriguing. Solar colors of the carpet will light up to the buyers house and make it stylish. Simple colors and beautiful, classic form make that rug a dream addition. This is a Scandinavian tradition in a refined and unique form.
