Studio Maison Matisse continues the story of the La Musique collection, inspired by Henri Matisse's painting of the same name (1939), by creating its first piece of furniture: the Alto side table.

Since your interiors require specific needs, its size allows it to be used in a variety of ways, in different rooms of your home.

Used as a coffee table, the Alto table brings a touch of creativity to your living room, giving it a bright and colorful touch. Placed next to a bed, as a bedside table, its shape brings softness and joy to your furniture. Finally, placed as a side table in the ideal place of your scenography, it completes your decorative work and gives life to your interior.

Generous shape and cheerful colors: so many decorative elements with singular characters and giving our Alto table its unique look. Its name is not insignificant either: Alto, since it refers to the famous stringed instrument of the violin family that Henri Matisse loved passionately.

The Alto table is made of ceramic, playing on the material effects created by the combination of a matte structure with a shiny top. The light reflects on the surface, according to the hours and the seasons, to make the whole vibrant and animated.

Here presented in a green/black color range, the Alto table also exists in ochre/pink.

Arts and materials

The Alto side table was created in a traditional Italian factory where research and design have been at the service of craftsmanship for over 50 years. Based on our design, a mold was developed to recreate its atypical shape inspired by the work La Musique. Each table is then cast and carefully removed by hand: this operation requires at least two people. The craftsman then smoothes the piece with pure water to obtain a perfectly homogeneous surface. The enamel color is airbrushed on for a matte finish, while at the top a specific enamel is applied by hand to create that shiny effect, making each piece unique.


The Alto side table is inspired by the painting "La Musique" by Henri Matisse peitn in 1911. Designed in the Maison Matisse studio, we wanted to play on the roundness present in the painting. The two spheres that make up our table echo the shapes of the guitar in the painting. The choice of the association of ochre and pink is also directly inspired by the palette of the painting.
