Marise Maas is a Melbourne-based artist whose beautiful paintings explore what she calls the ‘remarkable mundane’. Her work takes inspiration from ordinary and everyday things, because ‘if you look closely at the smaller detail, you find bigger stories’.

For many, the living room is the focal point of the house. It’s where family activities take place, where we sit to relax and perhaps watch television, and is often the first main room in the house shown to guests.

Azulej is Patricia Urquiola’s fourth project for Mutina. Collection of tiles for floor and wall, featuring complementary patterns designed for mix and match on the way to custom covering configurations.
