After Matisse

Using 26 different colors, designer Sonya Winner has created the bold After Matisse rug. It's odd shape with saturated hues and blended sections was inspired by famed artist Henri Matisee (whose works were often made using paper cutouts). The result is a fantastic piece of useable art.

The collage of 26 colors “replicates the effect of transparent colors mixed together”, said the designer. Can you imagine how splendid this would be in an all white room, or perhaps a children's play area?
