Leopard Apartment by Henrique Steyer

May 25, 2017

Leopard Apartment- Top international furniture allied with a series of french antique pieces confers luxury and irreverence to this apartment in southern Brazil.

Used to traveling around the world, and therefore with a rich repertoire of cultural references, the young couple who owns this apartment in Porto Alegre wished a distinguished decoration, free from trends and open to the best in world design.

Unusual elements, like pink curtains and impacting artworks make this project with cosmopolitan essence into a very singular one. Top sofas and couches from the italian Flexform combine with classic items from brands like Poliform and Flos. Contrasting with the contemporary language of the project, a series of antique french furniture completes the decor.

Among the artworks, attention is drawn to the one by Mark Gary Adams, a fictional artist created by Henrique itself, with images from 1970s porn movies mixed with playful themes. On the floor, large rugs spread thru the rooms, that also boasts a leopard skin, a marble greek sculpture and a gold-plated entrance door.

On the living room, italian sofas share space with a pair of table lamps by Achille Castiglioni for Flos, and with a dragon sculpture by Lalique. By the dining room, an acrylic side table with italian golden stools serve as support for the barbecue pit.

The highlight of this room is the Zeppelin Lamp, designed by Marcel Wanders for Flos. In the hall, the gold-plated door is accompanied by an imposing french mirror next to the elevator.

Still on the living room, Poliform armchairs in eggplant-colored leather make a composition with the golden Rifle Lamp, created by Philippe Starck for Flos.

In the dining room, Poliform chairs and dining table next to an artwork from the ‘What If?’ series, created by Henrique Steyer and digitally manipulated by Felipe Rijo. The image represents the Queen of England with black skin.

On the private living room, a high-gloss cabinet, like the one of the living room Home-Theater, holds a small wine hutch and art objects like a crystal Baccarat panther. An antique english desk is the reading area. In the bedroom, a table and a narrow dresser, both french antiques, serve as nightstands, lighted by white Flos lamps.

In the bathroom, custom woodwork gives a handmade feel to the project. In the washroom, a great collection of antique mirrors line the wall from floor to ceiling. In the kitchen, eggplant-colored cabinets match the cement-colored Corian kitchen-top.
