Mid-century inspired rugs, as opposed to the antique rugs, include abstract, pop-art, artist designed, surrealist and minimalist styles. Their pieces are able to set, or keep pace with the ever changing interior decor trends.
They can draw a room together, transforming it from sparse and minimal to cozy, inviting, and luxurious, without breaking the bank. Their popularity comes from their ease of use and the wide range of color palette options, not to mention their uniqueness in design.

In many ways, the new and innovative trends what were developed during the mid 20th century were based upon a revival of folklore and traditions that were turned on their ear to become a new genre.
In Scandinavia and Denmark, the patrimonial Danish design trends reached an unprecedented level of global popularity through manufacturers like Ege Rya as well as other professional weavers.

Like the aesthetic movement of the late 1800’s and the Luddites (who destroyed the British power looms in the early 1800’s), the artists and master weavers who created mid century modern rugs during the mid 20th century also rebelled against the increasing industrialization of carpet production.
Ege Rya and other manufacturers used weaving techniques borrowed from Axminster to produce durable machine-made rugs and shag carpets. While a separate group of designers was dedicated to producing hand-woven carpets and involving themselves in all aspects of production.
Ironically, the designers specializing in handwoven vintage rugs have often been the product of industrialization. These designers were schooled in industrial design and textile production to meet the growing mid century modern demands. The designers developed their own unique styles which often included influences from local or regional history and folklore.

Indeed, the fact that these vintage rugs are as desirable as they are is a testament to two things: first, to the incredible craftsmanship that went into the original composition; and, second, to their enduring beauty.
Vintage Swedish and Moroccan rugs are among the most desirable and sought after commodities in the art word, and are one of the greatest values. Swedish rugs of the early and mid 20th century are hugely sought after due to their incredible artistic qualities and superior craftsmanship.

For Swedish rug designers in the early 20th century, the production of rugs and textiles was raised to an art form, which had a great international appeal. A fresh and appealing aesthetic was sustained during the first half of the twentieth century by the weavings of the celebrated Swedish carpet designer Marta Maas-Fjetterstom and her peers. The simplicity and purity of design in vintage Scandinavian rugs give them an immediate relevance and contemporary allure.
