Joan Rivers House For Sale

Joan Rivers' Upper East Side apartment is up for sale for a cool $25 million. The three bedroom duplex condo was built in 1903 and was purchased by Rivers 20 years ago. The entire apartment is decorated in a Baroque style and has a terrace that overlooks Central Park.

We noticed a few needlepoint rugs in the French Aubusson style in her apartment. Recently, President Obama was seen on an Aubusson design rug gifting the Queen Elizabeth II an iPod with first lady Michelle Obama.  Newer imports can be found for as little as $300 in a typical 8' x 10' on ebay, although older pieces can fetch a much, much higher premium as can higher quality importer produced program reproductions. The last rug listed looks to be a machine made Leopard print rug, which believe it or not, seem to be coming back into style with more fury than shag.

Hi Mr. Soleimani,

Thanks for identifying your carpet.

We've used the carpet in the photo as a starting point of information. Now knowing what this rug is, we would be more than happy to link to it on your website. Just send us the URL.

Point of these posts are to provide the public with search keywords and starting prices. Not saying anything about the quality or grade of carpet.

Please note, your comment prompted us however, to identify the fact that quality reproductions certainly merit higher investments.

Thank you & all the best
