Doris Leslie Blau Collection Modern Soho Gold Hand Knotted Wool Rug N10723 13'5" × 22'0" $25,000
This new rug combines features of traditional tribal craft with contemporary trends. Its face is covered in an allover diamond pattern characteristic of nomadic Berber tribes. In the language of kilim motifs, a diamond symbolizes protection against the Evil eye. The traditional design is delicately outlined in a tone-on-tone palette of gold which makes this new rug preserve the magical Oriental aura while being adjusted to modern decorating standards. Moreover, in contrast to kilims, this contemporary rug has a pile. This colorful mix of influences works together perfectly and has the potential to introduce its exotic charm into a wide array of modern decors. The contemporary rug can boast about its top-notch execution. Its body, carefully hand-knotted of exquisite wool by a skilled artisan in accordance with centuries-old techniques, is strong, resilient and unique. Provided a minimum amount of care, the carpet will withstand years of usage without any signs of wear, being the focal point of any arrangement.
