Doris Leslie Blau Collection High-Quality Terra Beige, Brown Rug in Natural Wool N11292 14'0" × 24'0" $45,360
Hand-knotted un-dyed wool Tibetan rug with all-over geometric design.
This contemporary rug is hand knotted in wool and is an interesting presentation of the abstract and modern, with its all-over design of small, alternating horizontal and vertical geometric shapes in coal gray against a field of light gray. The design is almost an optical illusion, and is intriguing as such, compelling the viewer into visualizing crosses or intersecting stitched shapes at certain times, and simple linear patterns at others. The stark simplicity of the contemporary carpet is modern and minimalist, and evocative of Art Deco textiles of the past century. The fact that the rug is hand knotted in wool makes it unique among mass-produced contemporary textiles, both in quality and longevity. Abstraction and linearity dominate the feel of this modern pattern carpet while maintaining the intrigue with its play of color shades.
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.
