Antique Finnish Rya, mid twentieth century - This striking Finnish Rya or long pile rug is a classic example of the type. Originally developed as bedding coverlets, these rugs are luxuriantly soft and comfortable. Their design were traditional graphic and abstract. This example reflects the modernist tradition that developed in Scandinavia after the Second World War, with its abstract asymmetrical network in brown and white on grey, accented with flashes of color.
