Mid-20th century Swedish Brown Handmade Wool Pile BB5496 4'9" × 6'10" $7,000
Since the mid-20th century Scandinavian design has been one of the most desirable and widely sought after styles in the world. This incredible popularity can be attributed to the brilliant simplicity and practicality of northern creations, which at the same time are utterly sophisticated.
The lovely vintage Swedish pile rug before your eyes is made according to Scandinavian aesthetic thought and enchants with an uncomplicated yet perfectly balanced and appealing look. The main field carries only few geometric motifs and is enclosed by a simple border. Brown that prevails in the design is accompanied by extinguished orange, beige and blue.
An interesting feature is the pile which is too short for the rug to be called a rya and definitely too long for a traditional flat-woven rollakan. This soft and durable carpet was masterfully hand-knotted of the finest wool in accordance with old and refined weaving techniques. Thanks to such thorough making, the Swedish rug has survived until this day in ideal condition and will most definitely serve its owners for generations. This vintage beauty will fit into all kinds of contemporary interior décors, from classic to modern.
