Doris Leslie Blau Collection Geometric European Inspired Aubusson Rug N11694 11'0" × 15'2" $12,000
This fabulous modern rug is a fruit of an unexpected fusion – it combines the centuries-old weaving techniques from the French weaving center of Aubusson with the pattern inspired by an American hooked rug. Just one glance at its imposing, qualitative and beautiful body is enough to see that the merger went successfully. Its abstract design, comprising of oblique diamonds in the main field enclosed by a thick border with regular diamond motifs and finished with a plain stripe of mauve at the edges, is very dynamic and will introduce an intriguing geometric stir into any interior.
The composition is supported by a multi-shade color palette including dark and light slate gray, burgundy, carmine, rust, Aegean, navy and pastel blue, beige, peach, mauve, chestnut and beige, among others. All the hues are subdued in order to tone the extremely rich design – the properly balanced European-inspired flat weave rug will now easily match a wide array of décors, organizing and invigorating the space. The execution was performed by hand according to the Aubusson school of weaving of the finest wool by a skilled artisan to ensure the fine structure and durability of the contemporary carpet. If properly maintained, it will serve its proprietors for generations without any signs of wear.
