Doris Leslie Blau Collection Aubusson Floral Design Rug by Eric Cohler N11311 5'10" × 8'7" $4,500
According to Eric Cohler beautiful rugs are the heart and soul of any room’ and he seems to confirm that by putting both his heart and soul to the creation of his exceptional collection of Designer rugs. The one before your eyes is a Renaissance-inspired Aubusson, which although recently created, reflects all the greatest features of the traditional weaving French craft. To begin with, its perfect pile is hand-knotted of the highest quality wool and silk.
The color palette is maintained in subtle beige and sandy tones, which applies both to the background and the delicate pattern. Intricate foliage motifs cover the entire field of this remarkable aubusson rug definition, which is a reference to the traditional art of adorning Aubusson rugs. This one, however, lacks the cartouches or architectural frames that used to be the fashion back then – this fact makes it appear ‘lighter’ and less overwhelming. It is a real treat for the connoisseurs of the modern area rug art.
Doris Leslie Blau carries an exceptional collection of original modern rugs in many styles and materials. Contemporary hand-made rugs are a bridge throughout history, they are the fruit of the constant evolution of the weaving craft that has accompanied men since the dawn of civilization.
