Antique Rugs in Contemporary Spaces

How time-tested beauty transcends and amplifies modern design

The richness and depth of an antique carpet (which in our collection refers to anything made before the 1920s) stands in stark contrast to our increasingly homogenized and mass-produced culture.

Introducing the new Doris Leslie Blau showroom in Washington D.C.

Our custom and antique carpets have a new home in the capital!

Last year, the old D.C. design center was sold to the Bible Museum, that gave all the design focus located there a year to pack up and begin the hunt for new space. The answer was this lovely 1920s building with 100,000 square feet split amongst 30 furniture, fabric and carpet showrooms. Our neighbors include but are not limited toHolly Hunt, Kravet, Brunschwig & Fils and ROMO, so our new home is shaping up to be quite the design destination.

This three-story Chelsea penthouse is home to a couple with two energetic children who love modern and midcentury pieces. The home has gorgeous views of the Empire State building. The main level, pictured here, is the family’s living/dining/playing area. Designer Kate Hayes had to make sure all the pieces could serve multiple purposes.
