The Art of Entropy

Much of decor in our condo is junk market style.  However, we like to call it the "Art of Entropy."  What the process of natural decay does to many of mankind's creations is often more artful than they were when originally utilized.  After looking for more than a year for a painting to go above our sofa, we discovered three ceiling tins that were mostly rust, but with a remnant of the orginal paint on them that matched perfectly our sofa.  The square pillows reflect the shape of the tins.
