Vintage Swedish Wool Kilim

20th century Swedish kilims are renowned for their restrained and simple geometric designs. But this piece takes the idea to another level. The field design is completely devoid of ornamentation while the border is decorated with repeating stepped polygons in two shades of grey and blue. However, closer inspection reveals more complexity than first appears. For example, the pale blue field is actually woven in a sea of shades of blue which give the piece texture and depth. Likewise the border is also a complex range of blue, albeit of darker shades. The weaver or designer, whose initials are woven into the bottom right corner \'RE\', has cleverly blended colours to create both complexity and calmness. This piece would work well in many types of modern decorative schemes, under a table or even a bed.
