Description

The fresh, spring like tulips on this mid 20th century vintage Swedish kilim would make a cheerful addition to any contemporary design. The colors of this highly artistic flat woven rug consist of earthy neutrals and muted pastels blended in a way that makes it appear to be a watercolor painting. This lovely design also represents an important piece of mid 20th century artwork.

Mid century designers and artists often used the natural world as inspiration. This was done to add a point of contrast to architectural designs that had a tendency to have harsh lines and stark formality. These vintage mid century modern rugs were meant to bring a splash of color and break up the lines of the room. This beautiful vintage Scandinavian rug does an excellent job of adding color and texture to the space.

The background of this artistic kilim rug is blended in a way that makes it appear to be flowing watercolor paint. The blending technique creates a wave-like appearance that gives it texture and motion. The rug artist used space as the central focal point of the piece, with the floral elements pointing towards the center and framing it. The use of symmetry in the floral design and borders gives it balance. This contrasts with the asymmetrical and flowing colors of the backgrounds.

The artist used the element of contrast to create the theme of this Swedish Scandinavian kilim rug. The tulips are carried out in a way that emphasizes angles and squares, the opposite of the flowing, rounded forms found in their natural counterparts. This reflects the principle of the abstraction of the natural world that is seen throughout modern and post-modern artwork of the mid-20th century.

This charming vintage mid century Swedish Scandinavian kilim rug will add a unique character to any contemporary design. The design is colorful and creative. It is an important representative piece of mid century artwork and would make an excellent addition to any home or office.
