Henri Matisse, the French artist known for his brilliant use of color, painted Woman Sleeping on the Corner of a Table in 1939. The woman in the painting appears as if she has fallen asleep suddenly, perhaps during the middle of her day. There is a slight smile on her face which suggests she did not fall asleep from exhaustion or stress, but rather intended to merely take a cat nap. This bed literally surrounds our pets with one big, beautiful, and very colorful hug as they sleep without fear of any kind.
The Smucci Matisse Bed's soft, sculptural shape is truly a work of art. Hand cut wooden walls are carefully curved and attached to a solid wood base.Hours of plastering and sanding create the smooth finish upon which a representation of Matisse's masterpiece is hand painted. A final coat of acrylic glaze is brushed over the entire bed which seals it, protecting the bed from dampness. A damp cloth is all you need to wipe the surfaces clean. A thin strip of black vinyl, which is actually an industrial strength auto trim, is applied to the upper edge of the curved wall for definition and added strength. We glue it on to the finished piece, and love the way it looks and performs!
Each Smucci Matisse Bed is created one at a time, and no two beds are exactly alike. Variations will occur which contribute to the intrinsic beauty and overall feel of this exquisite masterpiece for your pet! Hand sewn one at a time with care and expertise, the round black and white minky "Zzzzz" cushion is filled with down substitute and rests perfectly within the bed frame.
