Doris Leslie Blau, Taurus Collection Modern Striped White, Gray, Goat Hair Rug N11471 3'10" × 6'4" $5,000
Contemporary rugs continue to surprise us with their boldness and opulence, yet just as many decide to go in opposite direction and celebrate the simplicity in design. This stunning modern carpet pattern, hand woven with undoubtedly great skill, is a perfect combination of design and color. In its pattern several horizontal lines run through the carpet for salewith another element of decor hidden in plain sight. Crisscrossed lines in the middle were achieved through experimenting with the length of the pile. It was possible thanks to the material used for weaving – goat hair, well known for its durability. The color palette, while simple, dazzles with the depth of its shades. The color palette of this piece was created of two hues, creamy white and dark gray, which help to balance out this design.
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.
