Doris Leslie Blau Collection Lotus Design Silk Rug N11427 9'0" × 12'0" $12,000
Although presently made, this marvelous modern rug incorporates traditional Far-Asian influences. Its design brings to mind vintage Chinese Deco or Samarkand rugs, featuring lotus flowers and geometric motifs. The lotus flower is generally acknowledged as a symbol representative of Buddha or rebirth. Lotus grows in pools of water, with its roots in the mud and the head emerging above the surface of water. This analogy has come to serve as one for the paths of spirituality – from the “mud of materialism” to purity and enlightenment. This gentle and deeply meaningful design is complemented by a warm and elegant color palette of gold, brown, purple, yellow and off-white which will easily match any kind of interior arrangement.
In addition to graceful appearance, the Lotus Design rug can boast of impeccable workmanship. Its body was carefully hand-knotted by a skilled artisan of the finest silk which gives the pile delicate luster and softness. Under proper maintenance, this timeless piece will withstand years of usage, pleasing the eyes and hands of its owners with the serene charm of the lotus pond.
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.
