Known around the world for 50 years as one of the most elite dealers in antique and vintage carpets, Doris Leslie Blau also offers a wide variety of new carpets and new area rugs. Some of the new rugs that we produce are inspired by antique carpets and feature timeless designs. Other rugs are inspired by vintage rugs or works of art but are executed with a more modern twist, either in design or color palette. Many of our new rugs were created by top designers and architects exclusively for the Doris Leslie Blau Gallery. The perfect complement to any home, new rugs, in either modern or traditional design, are always in style. As the current market leader, we have been a major supplier of new rugs for nearly a decade. Within this segment we have focused on offering our clientele the most beautiful and comprehensive selection of unique and eco-friendly rug options. Whether you are seeking a vibrant area rug to be the focal point of your room, or a subtle allover rug to play a supporting role in a design scheme, we are confident that we can help you find the perfect rug to meet your needs and desires. Whether an Italian-garden inspired pattern, a novel interpretation of an 18th century design, a sophisticated modern design, or a playful interpretation to match a quirky color scheme, we are confident in our ability to find the rug to complete the personality of your room. (For those seeking the ultimate in self-expression and design freedom, please see our Custom Rug section.)
Design and Making Techniques
Our exclusive new carpet collection consists of various designs and weaving techniques. Doris Leslie Blau has always been known for outstanding quality and the finest designs. We offer silk, wool, cotton and other natural fibers (there is nothing better than all-natural rugs) in various weaves; our new rug collection includes rugs produced in cut pile, looped, high & low piles, Moroccans weaves, shags, and various types of flat woven rugs. Chosen with the utmost care, the craftsmen who weave our rugs celebrate the beauty and integrity of natural materials and each is individually crafted to the highest standards.
In 2002 and 2009 Doris Leslie Blau curated a collection of renowned interior designers and architects who developed their own unique rugs for our exclusive designer catalog. To make these luxurious rugs, only the finest wool, silk and natural fibers were chosen to provide the consistently high quality, texture, and beauty that defines our designer rug collection.
So whether it is a new oriental rug or a new wool rug you are seeking, whatever your preference, Doris Leslie Blau has an array of beautiful, high-quality new rugs to choose from. Find the one that speaks to you and start your own tradition!
