The home’s architecture inspired by Mid-Century Mexican Modernism was the impetus for the interior design of IMI Design’s living room space. The architectural framework of massing, simplistic forms and layered elements are echoed in the appointments of the furnishings space. The innovative Italian sectional is formed with blocks of interlocking cubes, which is a fractal pattern of the home’s structural massing. It also allows for an unconventional way to lounge or socialize within the space.
Inspired by the layered windowpanes in the fenestration, the designer echoes the layering in woven textile screens. The textile art commissioned for the room references Mayan graphics while executed in a medium often used in the sixties and seventies. The neutral palette with hues of black, brown and ivory emphasizes texture and form. Two mirror imaged coffee tables of natural cerused oak incorporate biomorphic forms and a strategic use of negative space. The curation of the room’s pieces includes two 1970s leather sling chairs by Max Gottschalk, a John Rose sculpture and other collectible pieces. The design is guided by architectural inspirations, several layers of international influences, bespoke furnishings and curated accoutrements.
