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.
