Doris Leslie Blau Collection Modern Geometric Gray, White and Black Carpet N11587 13'2" × 17'7" $14,000
This remarkable modern rug combines very different styles in a way that makes them work together in perfect harmony. Its overall form brings to mind famous Scandinavian rollakan contemporary rugs – it is a simplistic flat-weave with a geometric pattern. However, the angular design present on the majestic field is unlike anything seen in the majority of Swedish carpets.
The pattern and color palette are drawn from yet another minimalistic trend which gained popularity and world-wide recognition more or less simultaneously with the carpets of the North – Art Deco. Large, pronounced rectangular shapes are softened by the toned palette kept in many shades of gray ranging from strong charcoal, through milder pebble, up to delicate cloud hue.
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.
