Doris Leslie Blau Collection Modern Needlepoint Wool Rug by Arthur Dunnam N12005 5'8" × 8'0" $4,000
As the director of Jed Johnson Associate, Arthur Dunnam incorporated a broad spectrum of styles and time periods into his projects. Despite his design philosophy being rooted in informed historical perspective, what Dunnam has really been focused on in his career was whether or not his projects were comfortable and clean. He has always been drawn to the combinations of styles, often mixing together historical splendor and modern restraint.
The new rug before your eyes is a paragon of Dunnam’s creative approach. The rug carries a simple geometric design with the mid-20th century aura executed in the distinct Aubusson weave. Everything is rendered in a balanced palette featuring the duo of beige and brown that will match any kind of interior décor, bringing in a touch of warmth and geometric stir.
The Aubusson weave means that it is a densely woven non-pile carpet. It was carefully made by hand in accordance with the traditional technique by a skilled artisan to ensure its quality, uniqueness and authenticity. Provided minimum maintenance, the rug will 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.
