Water Design Blue Hand-knotted Wool & Silk Rug N11608 12'0" × 13'0" $16,000
This borderless carpet is among the latest creations of Doris Leslie Blau. Its concept builds upon what’s the most precious and inspiring in the world – the wonders of nature. The pile, reminiscent of a subtle post-impressionist Van Gogh oil painting, represents light flickering on the surface of slightly wrinkled water surface. When looked at from a certain distance, the carpet may actually trick one into thinking it is actually made of water.
Although presently created, this woven beauty stays true to the venerable weaving traditions. The piece was thoroughly hand-knotted of the finest wool and luminous silk in accordance with old and refined techniques which ensure its uniqueness and durability. Thanks to such masterful execution and the employment of the best quality materials, the abstract rug has a chance to serve its owners for generations. The hand-tufting also influences its overall appearance. One glance is enough to fall for the shiny, soft pile that is a sheer pleasure to touch and to look at.
Modern shag rugs of the same type was spotted and appreciated by the world-famous designer Juan Carretero who featured it in his eclectic Mexico City home project that was recently presented in the prestigious Architectural Digest. It is easy to fall for the sheer excellence of Water Design area rug.
