If anyone knows rugs, it’s Nader Bolour, rug dealer in NYC, the founder of beloved rug source Doris Leslie Blau, world’s most recognizable brand for the vintage area rugs. Rugs have become far more of a necessity in any important room decoration. Today, most high-end designers base their design scheme on the rug. Rugs’ lasting appeal especially Persian, antique rugs, vintage oriental rugs & oriental carpets is partly due to the mystery of the different weaves and textures present in the rugs and partly (maybe even more importantly) due to the fact that the rug imparts soul to a room.
