RUGS WITH A RICH HISTORY

A rare and historic Swedish rug is proudly in our collection. The woven pattern is of the trends of this time period. Classic Scandinavian blues and pinks in darks and lights are beautiful. This rug shows a well used patina and is perfect in any interior design from traditional to country to modern and of course eclectic. Its narrow width is also typical for this time period. Put it in a hallway, in the kitchen in front of cabinetry or behind a sofa as some examples. It's wonderful.
