Velvet Cushion Painting
€ 125

The artist in Dutch Designer Annyta Lolyta comes out in her Tribute to Rothko. Just like the colored canvases of the 20th Century American artist, this velvet cushion painting is also a work of art.

With its Rothko-like bands of color, this cushion offers intensely luminous hand-painted orange and green in contrast with a dark, mysterious magenta black. Think of Rothko’s fascinating layers of deep color that make his paintings so moving and powerful. AND think of that same majesty on your couch, chair or in your office.

Annyta’s subtle use of shading gets an added element with her trademark base  material — changeant or shot silk velvet. This extremely soft material gives a two-tone effect so that the contrasting colors interact and intermingle in the light to give added depth.

Through a process that she developed as an artist, Annyta uses the two-tone effect of the changeant velvet to allow different shades of the same colors to contrast and blend with the others. The beautiful two-color effect of this luxurious material reflects the light of the darker shades.

NOTE #1: Our cushions are filled with down feathers. If you want to buy just the cushion cover with no fill or substitute another type of fill, please contact us.
Note #2: Velvet Matters products become more alive and beautiful with age. But please protect them. Even though we use the highest high quality changeant or shot-silk velvet, prolonged exposure to bright sunlight might cause some fading or discolouring. For maintenance tips see the FAQ.
Note #3: Just like dating-site photographs, our Velvet Matters cushion colours might look just a little different in reality. But don’t worry, unlike dating sites, our velvet cushions are always even more beautiful in real life – it’s just that maybe, once in a while, they might look a little different from the web photos.
