Description:
At Doris Leslie Blau, we have an enduring commitment to offering our clientele a diverse selection of the highest quality antique carpets and exclusive custom designed rugs. Located in the heart of New York City, we have served as purveyors and trusted advisors to designers for over 45 years. Among our clients are Architectural Digest's "Top 100 Designers" and some of the finest up-and-coming young interior designers around the world. We pride ourselves on bridging the gap between art, design and architecture by making rugs a key element of interior design through our quest for superior quality, while providing the highest standards of service.

Specializing in antique rugs, the main strength of the Doris Leslie Blau Gallery has been to find the best quality of Oriental and European rugs, many of which have graced the rooms of award winning interiors. Among our collection of antique rugs, we have finely-woven Persian rugs, oversized Turkish carpets, unusual Indian weavings, exceptional Russian, Spanish, and French antique rugs, as well as more recent 20th century modern, Arts and Crafts, Art Deco, flat-woven, hooked and needlepoint examples from Morocco, China, Scandinavia, and the United States. In the past decade, Doris Leslie Blau has also established itself as a leading source of fine new and custom rugs based on patterns by many well-known contemporary designers, including Alberto Pinto, Jed Johnson Associates, Mariette Himes Gomez, Amy Lau, Miles Redd, and fashion designers such as Nanette Lepore and Tommy Hilfiger.

Whether you are a young emerging interior designer, collector, or a well-established decorator, the Doris Leslie Blau Gallery is confident that we can assist you in finding the perfect new or antique rug within your budget and time-frame.

Topic: Antique finds in St. Jacobs Country
This weekend we’ve visited the Market Road Antiques in St. Jacobs Country. Beautiful drive with excellent weather.

And, we’ve managed to find a cool World War II era toy, a dexterity puzzle game from A.C. Gilbert – Radio Tube Trick. Made probably in the 40s and found in excellent condition for its age, and with its original glass top. The trick is to get all 4 tubes into their sockets.

If you are wondering what to be on the lookout for during your next antiques trip, Dexterity Puzzles made during the 30s and 40s are highly collectible and enjoyable. They will range in price from the low $20s to over $100, depending on condition, rarity, and subject matter (we recently paid $125 on a dexterity puzzle depicting Charles Lindbergh’s transatlantic flight!).

There are a quite a few other antique markets and stores in the St. Jacobs area. You can easily find them, plan your route, and hit the road with Canada’s First Trip Planner for Antiques:

Our quality department was hard at work in the past weeks to improve the quality of our geocoding engine as well as its data precision.

We are pleased to report that our last night index update improved the location rendering accuracy on Google Maps. This upgrade helps positioning more accurately some of the out-of-town addresses and those addresses that share a postal code.
