Doris Leslie Blau Collection Contemorary Beige Flat-Weave Wool Rug N11550 13'0" × 16'4" $18,000
Delicate, sublime and gentle – these words perfectly describe this remarkable contemporary flat weave rug. Due to the lack of any motifs, figurative representations or multiple colors, it can be categorized as a solid mid century modern rug which means that all its strength lies in simplicity, masterful execution, intriguing texture and perfectly matched, fashionable shade. And so it is indeed.
The only adornment of the vast, truly majestic field is the remarkably tasteful weave reminiscent of comely Scandinavian girls’ braids. Those ‘braids’ surprisingly cover the field horizontally, not vertically as it usually happens. The only color which occupies the rug – light beige on the brink of rose – corresponds with the striated, elegant texture without fail. Needless to say, the grand field is masterly hand-executed of the best quality wool in accordance with old and refined weaving techniques which ensures rug’s firmness and longevity. Nothing else is required for the rug to fulfill its function as both a practical utilitarian object and a decorative piece of modern art. It will easily fit into up-to-date interiors and imbue them with brightness and positive energy.
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.
