Textile Field

The Raphael Gallery in London's V&A Museum is home to a sensational new installation by brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec. Crafted from foam and spanning 90 feet, the giant bed poses as a vast landscape to relax on while enjoying the surrounding art. The color palette for the upholstery was honed from the tones found in the surrounding Renaissance landscape paintings. I love how the artwork becomes a blanket around you. Genius.
