Maison Matisse is expanding its permanent collections with furniture and decorative objects. The collection is inspired by the eponymous painting by Henri Matisse's in 1911, one of the artist's most decorative paintings.

Along with L’Atelier rose, La Famille du peintre and L’Atelier rouge, Intérieur aux aubergines is part of the series of « symphonic interiors », all painted in 1911 by Henri Matisse.

As in the other three paintings, here we find ourselves in a studio, in this case on Rue de la Gare in Collioure.

The collection was developed in partnership with Cristina Celestino, who designed a sofa, an armchair, a folding screen, two coffee tables, a rug, wallpaper, and decorative objects whose rich shapes and patterns offer a fresh take on the original work.

Sketch : Elisa Vendramin for Maison Matisse

Like a living painting, these archetypal pieces interpret the work’s most striking elements in three dimensions, through a set of screens that are superimposed in depth, mirroring the pictorial composition imagined by Henri Matisse.

In this spirit of juxtaposition, the Italian designer has chosen to use contrasts, not only between interior and exterior, but also between empty and full, flat and patterned, geometrics and organic softness, suggesting both distinctly contemporary forms and a certain idea of comfort. The painter’s aesthetic and humanistic values permeate this sweeping decor, where shapes and colors converge in total harmony.
