This piece was commissioned for a celebrity spa center in Oslo, Norway.
The Crème Background is the same as the fireplace color. The blue color picks up the blue velvet color of the sofa and also plays with the light as the velvet does. In order to mimic the velvet feel gloss Ida mixed several blues with more of iridescent delft blue.
The piece has a special size: the same width as the sofa and it was hung over the fireplace.
