Loft Style by Houssein Jarouche

This small but lovingly decorated pied-à-terre in Chelsea, Manhattan, belongs to Brazilian design entrepreneur Houssein Jarouche and was decorated in collaboration with his friend and New York-based interior designer Ana Strumpf.

The loft-style apartment has been filled with a mix of second-hand objects and contemporary pop pieces in a style that reflects the owner’s personality as well as his love for the American Industrial Era.

Most of the objects have been found by Houssein and Ana in flea markets and vintage shops in Brooklyn – finding overlooked treasures in piles of used stuff seems to be one of Ana’s special talents! As a result, a collection of taxidermied animal heads now hang in Houssein’s apartment under the dozens of tin tiles in various shades of white that have been used to cover the ceiling.

Over the kitchen table hangs a series of old glass lampshades found in designer John Derian’s store; their vintage charm juxtaposed against the bright – coloured, geometric tape patterns made by Houssein to cover the kitchen cupboards. The bed’s Victorian-inspired headboard was created by the design team at MiCasa, Houssein’s well-respected design firm and shop in São Paulo.
