A color of this weekend’s Fall equinox in art and life.
A few weeks from now the leaves on our ancient oaks and Japanese maples will begin to turn the color of autumn. This blazingly beautiful hue is also dramatic indoors, especially when Asian inspired.

Mid-20th century French designer Mathieu Matégot abstracted the same colors and the fruit form for the iconic 1953 Satellite pendant lamp. No trick there – just a treat.
