Nader Bolour Doris Leslie Blau Gallery’s great success on the antique and vintage rug market is due to its owner, Nader Bolour, whose business sense, original thinking and, most importantly, immeasurable experience helped us to become one of the best rug dealers in the world. Nader is also an extremely talented designer. His designs are classical, but hints of modernism make them truly memorable. 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. 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. Nader’s fateful meeting with Doris Leslie Blau in 1978 marked the beginning of a new era for both gallery and rug industry. Few years later, when the two of them met again, they formed a partnership. Nader purchased Doris Leslie Blau Gallery in 1997. History of Luxembourg Officially the history of Luxembourg began in year 963, after count Siegfried I obtained land from the Imperial Abbey of St. Maximin in nearby Trier. Although at that time his territory was rather small, Siegfried’s descendants managed to increase it through marriages, acquiring vassals and warfare. During the Middle Ages the House of Luxembourg sired four Holy Roman Emperors, earning it substantial favors. In 1354 Luxembourg was elevated from County to Duchy, but since Sigismund, Holy Roman Emperor and Luxembourg’s Duke died childless, it was adjoined to the Burgundian Circle and later on, when Habsburgs came into power, to the Seventeen Provinces of the Habsburg Netherlands. The shape of contemporary Luxemburg was established during the Congress of Vienna in 1815 and the country finally became fully independent. However, after Belgian Revolution, French-speaking parts of Luxembourg were ceded to Belgium. Culture Luxembourg, country’s capital city, was named European Capital of Culture twice, once in 1995 and second time in 2007. This was done in recognition of city’s rich cultural life and as an attempt to promote intellectual exchange between countries of Europe. Luxembourg’s culture sustains a number of folk traditions, although it remains intertwined with its neighbors, making it essentially a mixture of French and Germanic cultures. It’s most notable museums are located mostly in the capital city. Among them are the National Museum of History and Art the Luxembourg City History Museum, and the new Grand Duke Jean Museum of Modern Art . What’s more, the city of Luxembourg itself is on the UNESCO World Heritage List, thanks to its impressive fortifications, which played a significant part in country’s military history. Luxemburg is also a home to internationally known artists, including the painters Théo Kerg, Joseph Kutter and Michel Majerus.
