Doris Leslie Blau Collection Floral Bessarabian Style Handmade Wool Rug N11896 13'10" × 19'8" $26,000
Eastern-European rugs have that whimsical appeal that is hard to find in any other carpet types. They frequently incorporate stylized florals, typical of hand embroidery, that are permeated with a great deal of rustic charm. The Bessarabian-inspired rug before your eyes combines floral and architectural motifs (more characteristic of the Western-European weaving, including Aubusson and Savonnerie) which results in a classy, rich yet not overwhelming, design. The color palette is light, warm and delicate, with a pinch of feminine energy. The soft tones of light gray, beige, gold, yellow, taupe and off-white form a coherent composition, ready to complement any kind of décor.
The execution of the Bessarabian design rug is second to none. Carefully woven by the hand of a skilled artisan of the finest wool, this marvelous modern carpet has a firm and dependable structure. Despite the quite opulent pattern which would suggest a pile carpet, this is a flat-weave – a simpler construction ensures longer service without any signs of wear, provided only minimum amount of care.
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.
