Doris Leslie Blau Collection Oversized Rustic Golden and Pale Silver Hemp Rug N11716 18'8" × 20'6" $20,000
This oversized contemporary hemp rug constitutes the essence of practicality and beauty with a subtle touch of rustic charm. Its major strength lies in the excellent execution which ensures the rug’s firmness and longevity. The body was masterly hand-woven of the finest hemp, which is one of the most durable natural materials in the carpet industry, into lovely horizontal braids by a skilled artisan. Due to such thorough making, and under the condition of proper maintenance, the rug has a chance to last many decades without any signs of wear or damage even in a very unwelcoming environment. Although hemp may seem a bit rough a material for a rug, in fact it perfectly checks out in more demanding rooms of the house, such as a vestibule, kitchen or even a patio. This hemp rug combines the folkloristic braided design with modern minimalism. The natural coloring, incorporating various shades of brown, from warm, almost golden to pale, bordering on gray, creates a heartwarming, pleasant-to-the-eye composition. Versatile and utterly enchanting, this oversized contemporary rug will easily match a wide variety of décors, bringing in warmth and organizing the space.
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.
