Join us for a quick tour of Kips Bay Decorator Show House 2018.
Doris Leslie Blau was honored to have five designers showcasing our rugs!
Stair Hall, Dan Fink Studio
“I wanted the space to have a quiet strength and modern glamour, and these exquisite DLB carpets were the perfect answer.”
– Dan Fink
Living Room, Bunny Williams
“I picked the beautiful hand loomed rugs from Doris Leslie Blau for our room in the Kips Bay Show house to give warmth and texture to our space without having a lot of pattern. The natural wools, woven in rows, have a watery, subtle coloring that is the perfect background for the furniture.”
Living Room, Alexa Hampton
“The cool tones of my “Olympia Folly,” the campaign tent inspired room at this year’s Kips Bay Show House, serves as a pale canvas for the rich and regal colors used throughout its interior. This strategy is literally based upon the unusual pink Khorassan carpet from Doris Leslie Blau, whose soft geometries have Middle Eastern motifs melded with shapes reminiscent of neoclassical urns. What could be more perfect?”
Sitting Room, David Netto
“Rugs are the traditional way to start a room. They can have many roles, and most people might look for them to harmonize or coordinate, but the thing that is most important for me is a rug’s power to reverse the course of what is happening everywhere else. To create contrast. The rug, in my room, is a calming thing. That big airy diamond pattern is a relief from the rich colors or the walls, makes everything else seem to be floating.”
Guest Bedroom, Katie Ridder
“It’s the first thing people notice when they come to my room. I love it because it’s so unusual for an oushak – the stripe, and the colors are so happy. They seem to be the perfect hue of blue, red, pink and yellow.”
