Singapore began as a trading post of East India Company in the 19th century and throughout the course of history evolved into a major Asian center after gaining independence from both Great Britain and Malaysia in the 20th century. After that event, Singapore’s government decided to concentrate on shaping a national identity, as the city’s society consisted of numerous nations and religions. Although contemporary Singapore has little to do with a traditional notion of a “nation”, the city shaped its own unique identity, that benefits from its diversity. Not only its citizens do not share religion or culture, but also language! Singapore has four official languages with English being the most popular, but not dominant one. Although normally maintaining balance between such different people would be nigh impossible, in Singapore this is what keeps the society together – despite it all, citizens create a harmonous and thriving society.
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 had his first meeting with Doris Leslie 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.

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.
Singapore’s architecture seems to be as diverse as it society. Although ultramodern skyscrapers and apartments seem to dominate the cityscape, it is not difficult to find more traditional buildings such as mosques, temples or churches. The city annually hosts a prestigious Singapore Arts Festival, which incorporates theatre arts, dance, music and visual arts. It is estimated that approximately 70% of the events are put up by international artists, however, Singapore does boast a large group of extremely talented artists and designers.
