A vintage Scandinavian rya rug designed in the 1960s for EGE Rya De Luxe, a subsidiary of Denmark's most prestigious carpet manufacturer, EGE Taepper. This deep and dense midcentury design is 100% wool shag in a swirling abstract pattern. The rich color palette ranges from navy and cobalt to robins egg blue with teal, green, and golden ochre accents. This artistic combination creates a bold and dynamic floor covering or wall hanging and this may be the reason Ege Rya featured this exact rug design and color combination in a print advertisement published in the late 1960s. Traditional Scandinavian rya rugs or ryamatta are versatile pieces of home decor used interchangeably as carpets, wall hangings, and coverings for chairs, benches, or beds. This artistic textile was displayed as a wall hanging so it remains in very good, clean condition with strong colors and minimal wear, measuring 64 in. L x 40 in. W., 5 ft. 4 in. L x 3 ft. x 4 in. W. The rug has a wooden dowel at either end with a hanging wire which can be removed for placement on the floor. The original embossed leather tag is included although no longer attached.
