Swedish Tapestry or Kilim Rug, circa 1920Though strikingly modern in its simplicity, this lovely Swedish tapestry rug or Rollakan almost approaches the design of classic Navajo rugs and blankets. The abstract geometric elements are sparingly used, with considerable open space, allowing the rug to rely primarily on the effects of beautiful color -soft cinnamon, tans, and pale yellow. Only the stripes at either end impose a framing structure amidst the clarity and freedom.
