Doris Leslie Blau Collection European Inspired Aubusson Rug N11436 9'0" × 12'0" $9,000
This European-inspired area rug exhibits a genuinely palatial elegance. Although made in the 21st century, the carpet comprises all the best features of traditional Aubusson weaving art. Thanks to fascination with the Oriental masterpieces, the French were one of the first nations in Europe to establish high quality workshops for weavers, Aubusson and Savonnerie being at the forefront. By taking what is best from the Eastern craft and combining it with the Western aesthetic thought, they created an exquisite blend, ready to cater for the needs of European aristocracy.
This safavieh aubusson rug is no different – it will satisfy even the most demanding owners, being a perfect match not only to glamorous interiors, but also to simpler and more modern decors. Its design is rich but not overbearing in the slightest, orderly but far from boring. The main field is covered with uncomplicated flower motifs enclosed into diamonds, forming a regular pattern. More intricate flowers adorn the borders, giving the modern rug the distinguished Aubusson appearance. The same refers to the four flowers in the four corners of this hand-made piece, giving the whole composition a finishing touch. Colors are toned and tastefully arranged – the combination of light salmon, pale pink and green with delicate brown and beige works like a dream. This European-inspired Aubusson rug is an option for the connoisseurs of sublime design.
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.
