Hussein Jarouche’s Chelsea Loft

Whenever he leaves his 300-square-meter apartment in Jardins, São Paulo to sleep in his 87-square-meter pied-à-terre in Chelsea, Hussein Jarouche doesn’t exactly downsize. 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.

 

The loft teems with these one-of-a-kind patinaed finds, which he composes in multiples, like the patchwork on the ceiling formed from the old plates of brass lamps, the 12 antique pendant lamps suspended over the kitchen bar, the cool shelving system—left rusted on purpose—or the taxidermy elk, deer, fox and bear heads above his single bed. Leaving no square inch of space unturned, art by Alex Katz, James Rosenquist and Damien Hirst hangs on the walls.
