Doris Leslie Blau Collection Bassarabian Botanic Design Hand Knotted Wool Rug N11898 12'4" × 20'0" $26,000
This mesmerizing rug is a very successful merger of Eastern European and French design influences. Bessarabian weavings are characterized by brave combinations of dark and lights tones with stylized floral motifs whereas in French school lush ornaments take on an almost architectural form.
Here we have an opulent main field filled with architectural details, oval medallions and ornamental florals. Although densely packed, the pattern is regular and well-balanced. The color palette with only small touches of dark colors and the prevalence of beige, rose pink and light green is delicate but not deprived of character. This gentle yet pronounced composition will help you make a statement in a wide array of interior décors.
In addition to awe-inspiring appearance, this Bessarabian-inspired rug can also boast of impeccable workmanship. The flat-weave (which means there is no pile) was thoroughly hand-woven of the finest wool in accordance with traditional techniques by a skilled artisan. If properly maintained, it will undoubtedly serve its owners for generations without any signs of wear.
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.
