Aire del Sur



I've had this apartment in my mind for a while now...ever since I first saw it published in Australia's Vogue Living quite some time ago. It was such a delight to see more photos published this month in the Spanish Architectural Digest, and even more of a delight to find out who resides here.

Argentinian designer Marcelo Lucini is not only the resident and designer of this amazing apartment in Buenos Aires, but also the man behind the seriously chic furniture and accessories company Aire del Sur. This is a man who has managed to make home furnishings look sexy...



see? this picture is not advertising apparel....nice change, huh?


Anyway, I digress. The Aire del Sur line of furnishings is made from luxurious materials in classic forms, and I'm totally in love with the Anders desk and tables, made from iron and parchment....



Head on over to his website for more if this takes your fancy ;)

Great parquet flooring in the second image...I love how the yellow background of the piece of art accentuates it's honey colour.
Very pretty!

I love these pieces and I think Buenos Aires is a real center for design - so hot right now. Makes me want to go!

Although the honey colored floor is nice, the look of the apartment would really become more sophisticated with either a bleached or ebonized finish.

I think I might agree John...although I think I read in the Vogue Living article they tried restoring the apartment, so maybe they wanted to stick with the original finish...otherwise I would have gone ebonized too.

Those end tables are nice, and I agree the apartment would look much better with the floors bleached.

I think Buenos Aires is the major center for design in Latin America.
In fact, there are two shopping malls entirely dedicated to that.
I know this because when I stay in an apartment in Buenos Aires , the entire furniture was from those places.
