Rya rugs are the traditional Scandinavian rugs made in Danmark, Sweden and Finland, and word “Rya” actually means Rug. The vintage Scandinavian Rya rugs have extremely long, dense pile and were inspired by the Turkish “Yataks” or bedding rugs. Simple patterns, stripes and geometric designs are emblematic of these textural treasures. Thanks to the recent revival of Mid-Century decors the vintage scandinavian Rya rugs seem to have made a strong comeback. Interior designers and decorators from all four corners of the world are seeking out vintage rugs from Scandinavia and more specifically the Mid-Century vintage Rya rugs because of their Art Deco feel and modernist designs. From all the different types of Scandinavian carpets, the Rya rugs are easiest to recognize due to their pile which is much like the modern day “shag carpets”. Scandinavia’s fantastic vintage Rya Rugs are modernist, luxurious and superbly stylish. With such rich textures, bold colors and abstract designs, it’s not surprising that these luscious mid-century rugs are working their way back into modern interiors.
