Here is a fascinating vintage Scandinavian rug – a mid-twentieth century piece that was designed and woven in Sweden. Swedish mid-century modern rugs are wildly popular with consumers and designers who value the pieces for their distinctly modern bent, which tend to also incorporates traditional elements of design in a fresh, updated perspective. This particular piece is a great example of the fresh modernism preferred by Swedish designers, as it boasts a distinctly modern, simple design, the depth of which is found upon close second and third looks. This fascinating rug is composed primarily of a series of concentric rectangular figures, which are oriented like kites, each corner pointing in a different cardinal direction. Depending on one’s perspective, this kite figures are either ivory-brown shapes trimmed a dark shade of brown, or, alternatively, dark brown shapes with radiant ivory-brown outlines. Despite the relative straightforwardness of this design, the sheer volume of four pointed figures creates a dizzying effect, compelling the eyes to wander throughout the field. Textbook modernism, this Swedish rug embodies mid-century aesthetics.
