Aubusson Style Rug Designed by George Terbovich 187 N0187 8'9" × 11'10" $6,000
“This aubusson area rug is inspired by the vast prairie region known as the Flint Hills of my native Kansas. The carpet’s field suggests the native grasses while the over-grid bespeaks of the rock walls which once defined boundaries but today remain as limestone ribbons scattered randomly across this sensual landscape.” George Terbovich.
At Doris Leslie Blau you can find not only a collection of Antique Aubusson modern rugs, but also a line of Aubusson-inspired carpets, among which we can distinguish some of Eric Cohler’s aubusson-style floor coverings. Traditional Designer rugs originated in a town in south-central France – Aubusson. Initially, the region was known mostly for its tapestry, but from the mid-16th until the 19th century, the carpet weaving had been flourishing there. One of the characteristics of the early Aubusson carpets is a strong and vivid palette of colors.
