The owner of Micasa, a furniture and objects store in São Paulo, Brazil, flies to New York four times a year, where he scours Brooklyn flea markets with his girlfriend, interior decorator Ana Strumpf. Whenever he leaves his 300 square meter apartment in Jardins, São Paulo to sleep in his 87-square-meter pied-à-terre in Chelsea New York, Hussein Jarouche doesn’t exactly downsize in style or personality. The loft teems with one-of-a-kind painted and furnishings finds which occupies every surface. The hero for me is pressed metal ceiling reminiscent of a patchwork quilt. The retro fitted 12 antique pendant lamps suspended over the kitchen bar, the cool shelving system and the taxidermy elk, deer, fox and bear heads above the bed make this hipster utopia!
