Vintage Scandinavian Swedish Kilim Rug. Size: 6 ft 4 in x 8 ft 3 in

$12,500

About

Vintage Swedish Kilim, origin: Sweden, circa midcentury, size: 6 ft. 4 in x 8 ft. 3 in (1.93 m x 2.51 m) This handsome, richly graphic flat-weave vintage rug from Sweden is a complete embodiment of Scandinavia’s rug making excellence, which set international standards for modern design. The intricately patterned field showcases an ingenious striped design that is marvelous, modern and superbly balanced. Ivory, bole brown and delicate ashen grays are skillfully interchanged in a perfect repeating pattern that turns each element into an integral part of the background, foreground or mid-ground while balancing negative and positive space exceptionally well, as seen in the dark lozenge chains that decorate the speckled gray lozenges and zigzagging ivory compartments. Simplistic monochrome borders continue the lozenge-chain theme and complete this idyllic design that captures the minimalist style of Scandinavia, which stormed the stage in the art deco era, defined the mid-century aesthetic and remains hugely popular today.
