Personal interior: Eclectic loft in Chelsea, NY


When designer and entrepreneur Hussein Jarouche travels back and forth between his home of 300 m² in Sao Paolo, Bresil and his loft in New York, he really discovers the pleasure of 'downsizing' in lifestyle. The Chelsea apartment he uses when staying in the Big Apple is only 87 m² but he has a good feeling there because he has all he needs 'by hand'. Bedroom, living and kitchen are all in the same space. He choose this part of Manhattan because of the numerous art galleries, inspiring for his work as founder of the store and design company Micasa.
Project name: Hussein Jarouche’s Chelsea Loft. Location: Chelsea, New York. Brazilian artist Hussein Jarouche visits New York four times per year, staying in this 87sqm loft in Chelsea designed by Ana Strumpf – his home away from home. Jarouche is the owner of Micasa, a furniture and object store in São Paulo, hence the super cool eclectic aesthetic of the NY loft. The space is full to the brim with design, art and new ideas. There’s patchwork of old plates of brass lamps on the ceiling, different kinds of animals hanging on the wall, vintage lights and teacups hover over the kitchen bench, with other countless industrial objects and furniture items filling the space with loads of character. Art by Alex Katz, James Rosenquist and Damien Hirst fills the rest of the bare walls. Like srsly. This place is too kool for skool.

Lorsque designer et entrepreneur Hussein Jarouche voyage entre sa maison de 300 m² à Sao Paolo au Brésil et son loft à New York, il découvre vraiment le plaisir du downsizing ** dans sa façon de vivre. L'appartement à Chelsea qu'il utilise lors de ses séjours à New York fait seulement 87 m², mais il s'y sent bien parce qu'il a tout ce qu'il lui faut 'à porter de main'. La chambre, le salon et la cuisine sont tous dans une même espace. Hussein a choisi ce quartier de Manhattan en raison des nombreuses galeries d'art, qui l'inspirent pour son travail en tant que fondateur du magasin et design-company Micasa.

I'm so impressed with this interior. It's super eclectic, there are things to be discovered everywhere, there is color, different art and a real mixture of modern and vintage furniture and yet, it is a very calm and easy apartment. 
A real example!

Un vrai exemple!

Inspirational creatives: SCHOLTEN & BAIJINGS




I had some difficult choices to make as to deciding which photos to put in this post. The diversity of products by the design partners Carole Baijings and Stefan Scholten is enormous.
The Dutch designers couple met when Stefan Scholten was hired to create a bar for the agency Carole Baijings worked at. “As our lives came together, working together was a natural progression.” says Baijings “Stefan is really good at the big picture. I’m good at the details”.

Their trademark is probably the fact that they mostly don't work towards a result starting with an idea and then choosing the material, it's by discovering the material they come up with their amazing ideas.

J'ai eu quelques choix difficiles à faire quant à décider quelles photos utiliser dans ce poste. La diversité des produits du binôme de designers Carole Baijings et Stefan Scholten est énorme.
Ce couple designers Néerlandais s'est rencontré quand Stefan Scholten a été embauché pour créer un bar pour l'agence pour laquelle Carole Baijings travaillait. "Comme nos vies se sont réunis, travailler ensemble était une suite naturelle." Dit Baijings "Stefan est vraiment celui qui est fort pour voir la vue d'ensemble. Moi, je suis quelqu'un du détail ".

Leur marque de fabrique est probablement le fait que la plupart du temps, ils ne travaillent pas vers un résultat à partir d'une idée, pour ensuite trouver la matière; C'est en découvrant le matériel qu'ils arrivent à développer leurs idées surprenantes.
