Located in the very heart of New York City is a reliable and well-established antique and vintage NYC rug dealer. The Doris Leslie Blau Gallery houses various kinds of Oriental rugs and vintage rugs.

One of the oldest and the most prominent rug galleries in the city is Doris Leslie Blau. Established in 1965, the gallery is located at 306 East 61st Street in NYC. Its extensive collection of antique, vintage, and contemporary rugs attracts thousands of rug collectors and designers from around the world. The gallery has rugs of different sizes, styles, and eras, representing many well-known rug-making traditions. These traditions originate from countries like Turkey, Persia (Iran), India, China, and Scandinavia.

Mrs. Doris Blau, the founder of the gallery, is a legendary name in the world of rug collecting. From the beginning, she was determined to create something different. Something a bit offbeat, as evidenced by the outstanding collection of avant-garde pieces she assembled over the years. Even today, years after she handed over the reins of the company to her worthy successor, Nader Bolour, the gallery continues to operate on the same principles that made it such a popular destination for rug buyers.
