This beautifully soft and tranquil vintage Swedish inspired area carpet pays tribute to the iconic Swedish designers that helped shape the iconic mid century modern design era. Though this modern rug was woven in India, everything else about it was inspired from and drawn from the magnificent vintage Scandinavian rugs.

Generally speaking, mid-century modern vintage rugs and carpets are celebrated for the unique way that they combine traditional design elements with modern aesthetic sensibilities. This magnificent modern flat woven area rug, with its deconstructed and more geometric composition, is a beautiful example of this design approach. This is mostly due to the fact that while the kilim rug gives the illusion of being quite simple in its artistic presentation, it is, in fact, so much more complex that one would think after giving it a quick glance.

The simple areas that surround the central field, with their simple light and dark blue checkerboard patterns and unadorned with any further ornamentation, mirror the different sections of the field and visa versa. The overall design effect is mesmerizing as it is both simple and complex at the same time. This is made far more appearing as one spends time examining it as the amount of attention to even the smallest of details is quite impressive. The more you live with it, the more you will grow to appreciate just how much time went into create the gradient color variations that are subtle but extremally impactful. To create such subtle variation in textile art is not easy and is a true testament to the people who created this spectacular modern area rug.

This geometric design modern Swedish inspired kilim rug in such a beautiful example and you can also custom make the rug in any size or shape that you wish.
