This Rya rug is designed by the famous Verner Panton and exhibits a wonderful pattern of concentric and imbricate squares which is often a major theme in his work. The patten has a beautiful ombre of colors starting with white in the center and moving outward to yellow and black. The pile is very long as is traditional with rya rugs. The rug has been professionally cleaned.
Dimensions: 124” x 90”
