Traditional Norwegian tapestry

I have seen a lot of these wool tapestry things in my life, but never really had much interest in them, to be honest. When I came across these two though, I changed my mind. The colour-combo and patterns really appeal to me. I love the craftmanship that's gone into making them. They are created on a loom and I think they might be from the late 50s.

In all likelihood these will not go up on the walls in my house – I think it will give too much of a mountain cabin feel. Perhaps I could make cushions of them, but it seems a shame to cut them up. What do you think?

It could work on a table top, I guess.
