Doris Leslie Blau Collection Modern Geometric Flat Weave Rug N12217 14'1" × 19'9" $33,000
A hand-made flatweave wool rug. The design is modern, of tribal inspiration, incorporating warm-ivory, taupe, sand, ash, and black, with rich garnet accents.
Alternating black and beige stripes, arranged at different angles, create the impression of flights of stairs running across the field. At times, the arrangement of the stripes becomes erratic, making the rug dynamic. The invigorating touches of pink serve as voids between the intersecting “flights of stairs”. It is enclosed in a neat, light brown border, which serves as a counterbalance to the dynamism of the main field. This is an area rug, and its large size makes the visual effect of its design all the more stunning.
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.
