A collection of modern rugs inspired by Matisse.
In her London studio, artist Sonya Winner designs irregular shaped accent rugs replicating the tissue paper overlays Matisse created in his final years. Variable pile heights and hand carving become a playful collie of overlaying colors. Twenty-five colors of New Zealand wool are used to give the illusion of transparent overlays. The graphic rugs are meant to be focal points, bringing vibrant color into an otherwise white space. After Matisse [top] and Bubbles [below] are hand-tufted modern day masterpieces.
