Swedish Pile Rug by Marta Maas-Fjetterstrom BB6377 6'6" × 9'7" $30,000
Marta Maas-Fjetterstrom, the doyenne of Swedish rug art, is the author of this marvelous piece. With her magical creation she takes us on an unforgettable adventure to experience the picturesque landscapes of Scandinavia. Each and every inch of this wonderful rug is thoroughly hand-executed of the finest wool in accordance with the old and refined weaving technique. Only such conscientiousness in the creative process could provide this incredible quality and accuracy of design which have lasted for over 70 years and will please the eyes of many generations yet to come. The rug abounds in a multitude of colors and patterns that remain in perfect balance and harmony. Adorned with geometric star-like motifs, the main pile reflects of a starry night or a meadow full of flowers. It is extremely characteristic of Swedish rugs to echo the breathtaking natural surroundings of the North. The borders enclose and complement the design by giving it a final trim. What really surprises is the play of colors, walnut, pale brick, indigo, sandy and beige, which due to the right toning complement one another instead of fighting for attention. This Swedish pile rug is a work of fine art which, despite being made at the beginning of the past century, is absolutely valid also today.
