Berlin is an antique city by all standards. First mentions of the city can be found in documents dating from the 13th century and from that date on, it plays a prominent role in the history of Europe. It was considered an important strategic point during World War II and acted as headquarters of the Nazi leaders. After the war ended, Berlin was divided into two parts, Western and Eastern, which still echoes in the memories of those who experienced the divide. City’s complex history played an important part in the culture of its citizens, who value freedom and compassion over everything else. Berlin’s landscape is dotted with various monuments immortalizing those who suffered during the war in order to educate younger generations about the cruelty of war.
Doris Leslie Blau Gallery’s owner, Nader Bolour, is widely known as a talented designer and ingenious businessman. His family established the Bolour&Sons enterprise in the 1920’s in Iran and quickly gained recognition as one of the most distinguished rug dealers worldwide. The Bolours created Y&B Bolour in 1978, after moving their business to London, where Nader Bolour first met with Doris Blau, a great connoisseur of antique Oriental rugs. Few years later, when the two of them met again, they formed a partnership. Nader purchased Doris Leslie Blau Gallery in 1997.
Gallery’s great success on the antique and vintage rug market is due to its owner business sense, original thinking and, most importantly, immeasurable experience. With his finger constantly on the pulse of an ever-changing market and an unprecedented eye skilled in finding rare specimens, he instituted a new quality of the carpet dealership.
Apart from being an exquisite dealer of rugs, Nader Bolour is a designer himself, which can be easily seen in gallery’s broad range of custom carpets, made from best materials available for its demanding clientele. His designs are classical, yet contain hints of modernism. They combine the glory of the Orient with the freshness of contemporary influences. Nader Bolour’s love for rugs is reflected in the approach of his employees. Who would better understand the never-fading elegance of antique carpets if not the people who love them so dearly? Whether you seek a rug from Nader or you desire his original design, you can rest assured that he is prepared to deliver a bit of soul to your home.
