Doris Leslie Blau Collection Contemporary Indian Lilac, Plum, Wool Rug N11033 12'0" × 17'7" $38,000
New rugs by Doris Leslie Blau take what is best from the centuries-old traditions of rug making and put it in the context of contemporary decorating standards. The Indian rug before your eyes is a marvelous example of how such a merger can be achieved resulting in a truly timeless design.
Its entire field is covered in a bold, even baroque pattern of stylized acanthus leaves, florals and opulent medallions, supported by densely applied horizontal lines. The abundant main field is embraced by a simple striped borer. The textural differences between the background and the motifs introduce an intriguing stir to the design and give the impression of three-dimensionality. Everything is executed in a stately and elegant color palette of lilac and slate with plum undertones that will introduce a great deal of character and a gently feminine vibe to any space.
On top of the attractive appearance, the modern Indian rug can boast of impeccable workmanship. It was carefully knotted by hand of the finest wool and silk by a skilled artisan who imbued the piece with eternal qualities. The sturdy structure along with soft and luminous pile ensure that the traditional-inspired rug will serve for generations without any signs of wear, being the apple of the eyes of its owners.
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.
