[Decor] Latin style Manhattan loft
Arcila-Duque designed the living area’s linen-upholstered daybeds, the tripod floor lamp is by Theo Eichholtz, and the Saarinen Tulip table is by Knoll; the large photograph propped against the wall is by Iran Issa-Khan, and the small one displayed between the windows is by Horst P. Horst.
In the dining area, bent-plywood chairs by Norman Cherner mingle with seats from CB2; Rapture by Issa-Khan is displayed on the bookshelf, and the framed prints by Horst include a 1935 advertisement for Bergdorf Goodman.
The steel table and settees were custom made in Mexico and are grouped with a photograph by Robert Curran; the images of Lisa Fonssagrives (left) are by Horst, and the stack of exhibition catalogues are from the photographer’s 2008 retrospective, which Arcila-Duque curated.
Open shelves in the foyer hold pre-Columbian artifacts, Michele Oka Doner candles, and vintage lamps from Holland.
The kitchen cabinets are by IKEA.
A display of photographs in the library area includes works by Curran, Paul Meleschnig, and Celso Castro.
In the master bedroom, Issa-Khan shot the black-and-white floral images, and the table lamp is by IKEA.
