Blau Gallery Offers Rugs
Kay Anderson -- Home Textiles Today, November 13, 2006
The Doris Leslie Blau Gallery will unveil carpets created by Tommy Hilfiger and Nanette Lepore. At the March 8, 2007 launch, four signed carpets will be auctioned in a fundraiser for Gilda's Club Worldwide. "The new collection represents the marriage of interior design and home fashion," said Gallery president Nader Bolour.
Hilfiger has designed a handmade 100% Tibetan wool rug in a tailored chain-link pattern, and a 100% wool Aubusson weave in a blue-and-white anchor motif. Lepore offers a multi-hued, peacock-feather pattern in banana leaf fiber, which Blau Gallery notes, "is luxurious to the look and touch, with a more 'organic' quality than pure silk."
