Doris Leslie Blau Collection Modern Striped Shaggy Handmade Goat Hair Rug N11519 6'2" × 7'10" $3,000
This contemporary rug combines the minimalism of Scandinavian design with the furriness of a cowhide. On first sight we see pronounced, orderly anthracite stripes on the off-white background, but to discover all the qualities of this outstanding piece one has to go deeper. There is some organized shagginess which occurs only in the central part of the field and is embossed in slightly visible diamond shapes.
This subtle variation in texture is a genius touch, imbuing this otherwise spare and modern design with warmth and homeliness. Yet, it is not the only relish of this unique geometric pattern carpet. It is in fact made of two all modern rugs, stitched together in a manner that suggests hand-making and further highlights the coziness and home-related connotations. Why to have just one extraordinary rug when you can have two? The whole composition brings about the good memories of sitting in front of a fireplace with the loved ones and having a wonderful time. It is indisputably a perfect option for both modern and classic interior.
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.
