Doris Leslie Blau Collection Contemporary Terra Runner N11229 5'6" × 17'0" $11,000
Runners, being long and relatively narrow, are exceptional rugs, irreplaceable in places like staircases, corridors or transitional rooms. They provide cushion for the feet and introduce their beauty where no other rug types could be applied. That is why modern runners by DLB are made with upmost care and attention to detail, in accordance with traditional techniques. The contemporary runner before you is an excellent example of how we take centuries-old methods of carpet making and adjust them to the 21st-century decorating standards.
The contemporary rug distinguishes itself with minimalism yet its design draws from classic oriental rug art. The geometric pattern is intentionally blurred to create a feel of airiness and to imitate abrasion, which is a natural process of fading of antique rugs, widely sought-after by the connoisseurs who, next to aesthetic perfection, are after uniqueness and character in utilitarian objects. The color palette of grays is neutral and thus, versatile, ready to match a wide array of interior arrangements.
This modern rug was thoroughly hand-knotted of wool by an apt artisan. Due to such careful making, one may be sure that the piece is ready to withstand years of usage without any signs of wear, under the condition of proper maintenance. Elegant and well-executed, this contemporary runner is the paragon of present-day rug craftsmanship.
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.
