maison21 loves all things black and white- it's crisp, classic and timeless. in general, we prefer a clear, un-muddied color palette so black and white always works as an accent for us. in our never ending hunt for chic b&w accessories, we recently came across this great 4' x 6' b&w squares polypropelene floor mat at the pillowsandthrows.com website. since it's a woven plastic it would be great outside on a patio, or inside in the kitchen or bath, and at $60, it's the biggest bargain ever.
they also have a tufted wool 4' x 6' franz kline-esque "brushstroke" rug we liked, though at $420.00 it's not quite the incredible bargain the mat is.
