Doris Leslie Blau Collection Modern Striped Gray, Anthracite Flat-Weave Wool Rug N11516 3'2" × 5'6" $1,500
Within this exceptional cotton flat weave rug one may find features of Scandinavian design and modernist moderation as well as a surprising twist. This hand-made wonder is executed of the finest wool in ancient weaving techniques, yet its design is oscillating towards contemporary minimalism. The entire field is covered with stripes in many shades of grey and black and it is trimmed from all sides with a pronounced black lace. However, there is something more to it -the two longer opposite borders are additionally adorned with mysterious black lines of variable sizes. It adds a certain thrill to this otherwise orderly and organized composition. Due to its timeless appeal, this contemporary mid century modern carpet will be a perfect option for all kinds of interiors, both classic and modern.
Although the majority of people associate carpets with certain shagginess, flat weave rugs constitute a substantial part of the profound weaving heritage. Flat, hand-woven rugs have widely contributed to the development of rug-making techniques as they represent one of the basic forms of woven textiles.
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.
