After Matisse Rug

Prices from $890.00

The After Matisse colourful area rug draws its inspiration form Henri Matisse’s iconic paper cutouts. Hand woven by artisan weavers, this bright and playful area rug has a special sculptural quality.

We created the After Matisse rug from a collage of overlapping colours. In total there are 25 wool colours, which replicate the effect of transparent colours mixing together. Each of the smaller squares are combined to create a single area rug combing shades of blue, green, turquoise, yellow, orange, pink and purple. The effect of translucency can be seen in the aqua, turquoise, violet, rose and rust brown shades that emerge.

Rugs set on their places… We just love them! Especially my two kids who found them “colourful” (my daughter’s favourite colour) and “adorable strange shape” (the words from my son)! As for me: just like I have imagined for that place and I couldn’t find it this two last years! Simply perfect! Thank you for making my house just as comfortable as I could imagine!

Congratulations on the kind of rugs you produce! Absolutely amazing!

Claudia Rodrigues, Porto, Portugal

Dear Sonya, It has arrived! Can’t l tell you how thrilled I am. It is every bit as fabulous as I imagined it would be. Thank you and thank you for getting it to me so speedily. What a joy it was to come downstairs this morning and be greeted by my new rug in all its glorious colours in the morning light. It has already received much attention from the various visitors who keep turning up to see my new house – all positive!

Leonie Henderson, Manningtree, Essex, UK

Hi Mary, The rug was delivered today, we’re so excited and absolutely love, love it. I attached a few photos for you to see. We’re still trying different chairs, etc. but we really love it. Thank you again for everything and please thank Sonya for me.

We love our new rug! Here is a picture of our living-room. Regards, Eric

The Rug and the Cushions are perfect! Thanks a lot for your professionality. I attached a photo of the room. Best regards and Warm wishes

Riccardo D’Alessandri, Rome, Itlay

The rug is just beautiful, with gorgeous vibrant colours – it literally lights up the room. I went to the Matisse Cut-Outs exhibition at the Tate a while ago, and I have to say that if the rugs had been displayed there they would have completely overshadowed the cut-outs. Please congratulate Sonya on her beautiful work – it is simply exquisite.

Eva Armstead, London, UK

Dear Mary, My new Standard After Matisse rug arrived safely and without incident on the date you had kindly arranged. It is resplendent in my ultra-modern, contemporary house, residing in the living-room. The two smaller matching rugs are in my dining-room and entrance hallway. These rugs so perfectly fit my new house that I feel they were especially designed and made for “Betula”. They are splashes of brilliant colour in intriguing shapes, works of art on oak floor set off against white walls. They complement the design of my home to perfection. So glad I discovered you, just by chance, online. What a find!

Christine Nickson, Cambridge, UK

Talk about service! Our Sonya Winner “After Matisse” New Zealand hand knot wool carpet arrived yesterday in the early afternoon. It was shipped from London on Friday and arrived Monday!!! We couldn’t be more pleased with our choice and plan to order another carpet/runner down the road. What’s interesting about this carpet is the raised finishes which we hadn’t expected but it gives the carpet a more three dimensional look. And the burst of color fits perfectly.

Wally Prawicki, Sedona, Arizona, USA

My husband finally moved into his new office, and I’m so pleased to show it off! This rug is absolutely perfect. We’re so pleased with it!

Maria Hanson, Willmar, Minnesota, USA

Gostei muito do tapete e, também da “pontualidade britânica”… não é só para inglês ver… rsrs… Só gostaria de registrar minha surpresa do valor da taxa alfandegária, foi praticamente o valor do tapete!!!!!!!! De toda forma, amamos o tapete e ele ficou lindo na minha sala. Parabéns pela sua criatividade. Congratulations on your creativity!

We just received the After Matisse rug which we ordered from you through our Designer Celia Vogel, CV Design Associates. Firstly, let me tell you how thrilled we are with the rug; it more than exceeds our expectations. The colors are luscious, the quality is beautiful, and it does for our living room exactly what we had hoped it would do. Attached are some photos of the rug in situ (phone camera and room still in progress).

Thanks! We are so pleased with how the rug is holding up with heavy usage. I emailed the link to your website for the little video that tells about our library and shows the rug.

My wife and I looked at hundreds of rugs online and in stores and didn’t feel as though we had found the right rug for one of the rooms in our new townhouse. Then, boom. We couldn’t believe our eyes–the After Matisse rug and pillows are perfect. Finally, a real splash of color, style, and texture. We love it.

Dan Abrahamson, Maryland, USA

We have been looking for the perfect unique rug for our apartment. My husband is an architect and I am a design consultant. We saw a picture of the rug and knew it was the one! We met Sonya at the AD show in NY. We loved the rug even more when we saw it. We have it home and its perfect. Thanks Sonya! You and the rug are AMAZING!

Phyllis & Andrew Seifer, New York, USA

We bought the After Matisse rug at the 2013 Architectural Digest show in NYC. Attached is a photo of the rug in the Living Room with the pillows we also bought. The space looks great and we love the rug.

Hi Sonya, The Rug is fantastic!… and so are the cushions. Have a great Christmas and all the best for 2013.

Benjamin Shine, Australia

The After Matisse rug looks great – thanks. We have also purchased one of the Bubbles rugs which is fantastic, particularly on a bright day. We are one of your number one fans! Look forward to seeing what you come up with next 🙂 Cheers, Rik and Dawn.

Rik Skews and Dawn Bacon, Surrey, UK

Dear Amy, Many thanks for the rug, it arrived safely yesterday and looks fantastic. Most of your rugs are pictured as part of a very contemporary decor, but even in my Victorian cottage the rug and cushions add just the right touch.

Evelyn Russell, Kings Langley, UK

Everyone comments on how perfect the After Matisse rug is in our library space! Thanks again.

Cindy Fesgen, The da Vinci Academy, Colorado Springs, USA

Dear Sonya, unbelievably fast, the rug arrived today! It is fun-tastic, a 100 times better than l imagined !! In the words of Woody Allen:’ Love is too weak a word for what I feel – I luuurve it!

Veronika Fürst Ažman, Slovenia

Dear Sonya, I got my After Matisse rug home this afternoon and it looks fabulous. I’m so glad I chose the larger size. I am delighted with it.

Sue Nosworthy, London, UK

Sonya, Thank you so much for staying on top of our order for our After Matisse rug and keeping us updated through the process of having it made. We received it on time and it was a big hit and a point of conversation at our Thanks Giving party. We told everyone that not only the rug is beautiful but we received great service. Once again thank you for getting the rug to us on time. Based on this experience we wanted to order couple more rugs from your gallery. Will be sending the details on those rugs to you shortly.
