Doris Leslie Blau Collection Scandinavian Style Handmade Rug N10975 12'0" × 16'0" $13,500
New, modern and custom rugs by Doris Leslie Blau comprise the greatest features of the old and venerable weaving tradition with the consideration of the present trends and a pinch of visionary approach. The Swedish flat-weave before your eyes is an example of how different styles can be seamlessly mixed together forming an exceptional design.
Scandinavian rug craft is one of the most renowned in the world because it builds on two key factors – minimalism and quality. The contemporary Swedish rug is made in accordance with centuries-old techniques which means it was carefully woven by hand by a skilled artisan on the looms. Such meticulous making ensured its durability and uniqueness. With minimum care, the piece will not show any signs of fading or wear for generations of owners.
Its design differs from what we would typically expect of a Scandinavian carpet. The allover pattern residing both on the main field and border is heavily inspired with Art Deco. An expert could also argue that the contemporary carpet has a somewhat Asian touch to it. If given a chance, the combination of beige, off-white and pale burgundy will introduce elegance and a vibrant but balanced energy to a wide gamut of arrangements.
Mid-century Swedish inspired rug made in India.
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.
