This gorgeous, modern Swedish inspired wool pile rug brings an abstract and exotic element to the space. Geometric shapes have been popular for several years, and this magnificent modern rug from India allows you to incorporate them into your space in a way that is fresh and modern. It has a vintage area rug feel, and it would be perfect for a space that incorporates both vintage and modern elements.

The essence of Swedish mid century modern design is honoring the connection between man and nature. The designs often incorporated geometric shapes and angles with an organic element that represents the natural world. In this modern rug, the chevrons, rectangles, and triangles represent the world of man. The world of nature is represented in the organic and inspired way that the shapes evolve along the length of the geometric design area rug.

The simple shapes of this room size area rug evoke a primitive feel that connects the ancient past with the present. The simple color palette has a graphic quality that is perfect for an ultramodern space or for a room that uses minimalist furniture with simple geometric forms.

You could imagine this ivory colored rug in a wide range of design styles. It would be perfect for adding a pattern to an all black and white interior designed room, using the ivory tone of the modern Swedish design rug to soften the stark contrast. It would be a striking piece when placed in front of a minimalist black leather sofa with chrome legs and black accents. You could also use it in a neutral space with a touch of color to add interest using the accessories and window treatments.

The high-contrast, graphic quality of this modern pile Swedish style area rug makes it a complement to modern room features, but its simplicity also evokes a primitive feel that contrasts with the modern world. Many of the geometric shapes in this rug have a connection to artistic elements that have been a part of man’s self-expression for thousands of years. This simplicity of this piece gives it a timeless quality that is perfect for incorporating modern, vintage and of course Scandi inspired interior decor elements into the room design.
