Klee – Rug of the day

Continuing my homage to mid century designers and colourists here is my KLEE RUG. A colour piece inspired by Paul Klee, a master of colour. His 1929 paintings ‘Monument in Fertile Country’ and ‘Fire in the Evening’ both show the geometry and line and colour he understood so well. Monument in particular shows palette of brilliant yellows. Never one to copy directly (of course!) my rug is a simple colour theory design using the complementary opposites with a slight twist; a more vibrant magenta/pink rather than purple as such. The combination of calm neutrals alongside the hot pinks and warm yellows means strong colour without dominance and therefore a rug that is easy to live with and assimilate into your living space. Available in a wool flatweave OR a 60 knot pile to any size, this is a wonderful way have colour in your everyday life. Any enquires please contact (fifth@ptolemymann.com).

The beautiful pictures of my rug were taken by Nicole Rowntree.
