INTERIOR DESIGN SPOTLIGHT: Doris Leslie Blau, New York, NY

“A rug, like a work of art, should awaken something in you,” Doris Leslie Blau — a legend in the world of rug design — once said. “As soon as you enter a room your eyes focus on the floor first, and then shift upward. That’s why a rug is an important part of any room – it can create the mood.” Doris Leslie Blau began working with rugs in 1964, and nine years later she started her own company with an outstanding collection of avant-garde and incomparable pieces, which have always made the gallery a bit offbeat. She retired in 1998, but her business, as well as her vision, still thrives.

DBL offers a diverse selection of the highest quality antique carpets and exclusive custom designed rugs – in fact, the gallery has almost 1900 antique rugs overall, including more than 300 Tabriz rugs. It also prides itself on environmentally friendly options: antique rugs are reused and many of the new rugs have been made out of recycled fibers. The company has gained a reputation of bridging the gap between art, design and architecture by making rugs a key element of interior design through its quest for superior quality.
