The Smucci "Muttisse" Pet Bed features a hand painted design inspired by Henri Matisse's "Woman Sleeping on a Corner of the Table in 1939." The woman in the painting (and on the bed) 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."
Artist Debi Kahn says, "My intention was to create a bed which literally surrounds pets with one big, beautiful, and very colorful hug as they sleep without fear of any kind."
The Smucci "Muttisse" Bed is handcrafted in Michigan with a solid wood base and rounded plywood walls which have been plastered to a smooth finish. A representation of Matisse's masterpiece is hand painted onto the walls of the bed, and then sealed with a finish coat of acrylic. A black and white faux mink cushion is included.
