The Barcelona home of Miquel Alzueta and África Posse
Every so often you come across a home that is so divine in its architecture and so perfectly furnished that it could only exist on the pages of a marvellous coffee table book, published by Kinfolk of course …
The gorgeous Barcelona home of art dealer Miquel Alzueta, his wife África Posse and her son Santiago is a reflection of their impeccable eye for antiques and passion for 1950s functional furnishings.
The couple exudes a type of ‘coolness’ that one can only aspire to, their home is merely an extension of their personalities with every corner containing yet another piece of mid-century magic. Miquel insightfully tells Kinfolk that “One doesn’t choose his whims, his passions or his follies … I got there by being curious, and I turned it into a way of learning, a way of living and, later on, into a job and a business.”
If it’s new, it talks about us –
Not unlike their Barcelona apartment, this home is reminiscent of a well-curated gallery, largely influenced by the iconic French designers Charlotte Perriand and Jean Prouvé and full of gorgeous art from the personal collections of both Miquel and Africa.
The home’s stunning parquet floor and traditional French architecture of the 40s are the perfect canvas for the couples eclectic mix of art, objects and furniture that is nothing less than formidable, as the French would say. For the full exert on the home pop over to ‘Kinfolk’ …
