Vintage Swedish Brown Rug

About

Vintage Swedish brown rug Size: 4'7" × 6'5" (139 × 195 cm) This unique geometrically designed vintage Swedish rug from 1940 features a deep red field and various abstractions in the main border. Carpets and rugs such as this Scandinavian carpet have been handmade from knotted wool in Sweden for centuries, taking on many different forms and functions over the course of time. Rugs woven in the traditional Oriental manner were originally brought to Sweden over trade routes as early as the early middle ages. Eventually, Swedish rug-makers would begin to use Oriental rug-making techniques while incorporating themes and motifs more consistent with the artistic and cultural heritage of Sweden. By the beginning of the 20th century, designers began to make rugs that had a broad international appeal. Swedish rugs from the mid-20th century, endorsed by such modernist greats as Le Corbusier, Ray Eames and Frank Lloyd Wright, remain among the most desirable and sought after in the rug world.
