Swedish Brown, Gray, Green and Yellow Flat-Weave Wool Rug Signed W BB6544 5'7" × 7'10" $8,000
Flat woven vintage looking rugs were an important part of Swedish culture and in many cases remain so. After this traditional craft became popular outside the country’s borders, numerous designers and carpet aficionados became enamored with their elegant forms and stunning colors. This beautiful rug, woven circa 1950, personified everything that’s best in Scandinavian style rugs. It’s simplistic yet gorgeous pattern is constructed of various geometric figures and reminds of a wreath of beautiful pansies. The central field was deliberately left empty, so that the border could successfully anchor the whole in one place. The color palette of this antique carpet was not picked accidentally – earthy browns work perfectly with cooler tones and gray highlights, creating a truly enticing mix and an unforgettable composition.
