NY Home | Chelsea Loft

Casa Vogue recently featured the stunning apartment of my friend and former colleague André Viana, an art dealer, and his partner André Mellone, an architect. Their loft, located in the heart of West Chelsea, is steps from the High Line and filled with an impeccable collection of furniture and art, including coveted pieces by Wade Guyton, Jacob Kassay, and Tauba Auerbach.

In their living room, two leather club chairs and a folding chair designed by Hans Wegner sit around two coffee tables, an aluminum piece from 1960s and a three-legged walnut table designed by T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings.

André Mellone's beautiful design renderings carefully plan for each element of the home, which feels balanced, warm, and layered, due to antique elements nestled among the contemporary architectural lines of the apartment. Their superb space was created by uniting two adjacent units in the building, the combination of which was designed and overseen by Mellone. 

Three silver paintings by Jacob Kassay preside over a long marble and iron French bistro table, which is flanked by six antique Biedermeier dining chairs dating from 1840.

This loft is truly fantastic; each detail truly complements the overall design, and it's a lovely example of melding antiques with contemporary art and architecture in a chic and comfortable fashion. And, thank you to André for sending me a few unpublished photos to include, all of which were taken by Fran Parente.
