77272 Vintage Swedish William Morris Acanthus Inspired Rug with Arts & Crafts Style 05'11 x 08'06. With architectural elements of natualistic forms and soft colors, this hand knotted wool vintage Swedish rug beautifully embodies Arts & Crafts style. A repeating all-over nature-inspired foliate pattern composed of densely intertwined acanthus leaves rhythmically spread across the field. It is enclosed with a triple Herringbone Chevron border. The overall composition is distinctly reminiscent of the Arts & Crafts movement carpet designs of late nineteenth and early twentieth century England. The Arts & Crafts movement celebrated craftsmanship and simple, informal folk styles of decoration. Leading designers of the movement, such as William Morris and C.F.A. Voysey, embraced hand-knotted rug making and crafted high-quality woven textiles in contrast to the overly decorative manufactured goods popular at the time. This vintage Swedish rug continues the tradition of the Arts & Crafts movement and Donegal workshops, displaying a bold, out-sized design and soft color palette informed by the natural world. This piece would be a wonderful addition to any interior especially one inspired by the Arts & Crafts, Art Nouveau or Prairie School movements. Perfect for a living room, dining room, front room, bedroom, study, library, office, den, family room, large sitting area, studio, library, study, theatre room, private chambers, state room, great room, music room, or lounge area. Well-suited for a variety of interior styles: Arts & Crafts, Tuscan, Bungalow, Craftsman, Artisan, Pacific Northwest, American Colonial, Spanish Revival, Industrial, Rustic, Lodge, Cabin, Mediterranean, Italian, Cottage, Country, Traditional, Mid-Century Modern, Eclectic, and Modern.
