Vintage Scandinavian Rya Rug by Ritva Puotila

About

Vintage Scandinavian Rya rug by Ritva Puotila. Here is a highly unique and intriguing vintage carpet - a vintage Rya rug that was woven in Scandinavian during the middle years of the 20th century. Boasting a fascinating color pallet and a compelling design, this Scandinavian rug exemplifies the possibilities inherent in modernist experimentation. Featuring none of the motifs or frequently occurring formats that characterize classical rugs and carpets, this Mid-Century piece occupies a place very much its own. Green, blue, red, purple and indigo appear throughout the piece, with the indigo creating a mood of whimsy and daring. Colored checks populate most of the composition, while the main aesthetic flourish of the piece - a pair of fascinating circles, joined by a tendon-like band - dances on top. The combination of rectilinear details with highly circular flourishes creates an intriguing dissonance throughout the carpet, which underscores its experimental nature. All of these attempts are hugely successful at creating a unique and exciting work that, while in a class all its own, represents the most important facets of Mid-Century design.
