Fine Art for the Floor

Persian Malayer rugFrom a cozy wool rug to a timeless antique carpet, it’s true that what’s laid on the floor can transform a room in one fell swoop. As president and owner of Doris Leslie Blau, Nader Bolour, says, “It’s like putting a soul into a body. The eye always goes to the floor when someone enters a room.”


Truly Timeless

More than a century old, this Persian Malayer rug from the late 19th century is one of hundreds of antique and vintage rugs available at Doris Leslie Blau. Bordered by a delicate floral pattern, the oversized 23’7” by 15’ year-round antique rug features a playful palette of reds, blues, greens, and beiges. $120,000.
