Doris Leslie Blau Collection Hazel Swedish Area Rug N11876 13'5" × 14'6" $19,000
A handmade wool area rug with a fine, tapestry-style weave. The design is inspired by a vintage textile by the famed mid-century Swedish artist and weaver Märta Måås-Fjetterström. Alternating rows of stylized leaves and meandering shapes are covering the entire ivory filed of the carpet. The color palette is crisp, in red, charcoal, brown, and yellow.
During her lifetime, Måås-Fjetterström created more the 700 original patterns blending folk and traditional handicrafts with Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles.
Doris Leslie Blau carries an exceptional collection of modern rugs inspired by mid-century Swedish designs. We stay true to the legendary tradition of Scandinavian craftsmanship by hand-weaving flatweave wool Rölakan rugs and wool pile Rya rugs that are very close in looks and feel to the original ones. 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.
