Here is a dynamic and compelling vintage carpet – a Swedish kilim that was woven in Scandinavia during the middle years of the twentieth century. Featuring a simple design of rectilinear figures set against a minimally adorned field, this Swedish carpet is a fascinating study of modern rug design. The carpet is effectively broken up into field and border portions by a series of rectilinear diamond figures. The outer “stripe” of these figures consists of blue diamonds, each of which features light and dark portions. Nestled within the negative space of this “stripe” lies another, similar formation, this one composed of ivory diamonds, which are also characterized by light and dark portions. A handful of additional blue diamonds appear within, creating a fragmented third “stripe.” Within this final grouping of diamond figures, one finds the field proper, wherein a simple pair of large diamond figures rest against a soft blue background. The lack of ornamentation within this central portion really makes it stand out from the rest of the carpet, infusing with a powerful presence.
