Doris Leslie Blau Collection European Inspired Tibetan Black, Gold-Brown Rug N11568 5'0" × 7'8" $5,000
This majestic modern area rug is truly soulful and royal. It is so because the carpet combines the features of both Bessarabian sentimentality and French palatial elegance. The pitch-black background is a nod to Eastern-European aesthetics, the same association applies to some of the flower motifs, whereas the overall intricate and sublime gold-brown foliage pattern can be definitely linked to Aubusson or Savonnerie abundant creations.
However, this exquisite safavieh Tibetan rug was not made in any part of Europe. It was masterly hand-executed of the finest wool by the hands of skilled Tibetan weavers according to old and refined weaving techniques. Its soft and firm pile tells more than any words ever would – the rug is extremely qualitative and has a chance to please the hands, eyes and feet of lucky owners for generations. This contemporary piece brings the best of the past to the present and will be a gem of any interior, especially Hollywood Regency-styled or eclectically-designed with the mix of modern and antique elements.
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.
