These Andy Warhol Camo pieces had me at hello….
George Nunno’s Loft is located in the epicenter of New York’s Meatpacking District, a throbbing enclave of nightlife, luxury shopping, and hotels. But the home, which faces an interior courtyard, feels a world apart. It is a dark and sexy oasis where black is the predominant color, the noise of the city is muffled, and every detail—from the low-slung velvet sofas to the vintage furnishings and art (including an entire set of Warhol camouflage prints)—is part of a considered whole.
There are hints of exotica, too, like the living room’s vintage leather rhinoceros, and nature-inspired decorative pieces, such as the bedroom’s geode lamps. These elements coexist with such collectors’ prizes as a Harry Bertoia bronze bush sculpture, a Karl Springer bronze-and-glass cocktail table, and a Maison Jansen console table.
Flair got its start in Italy, which is where Nunno and his business partner, Jon Maroto, first discovered it. In the early 2000s, they were fashion executives working for the brand Coach and making regular trips to Florence to oversee the production of leather handbags and clothing. One day they wandered into the Florence shop (there are now two additional Flair stores, in Rome and Milan, as well as the one in New York) and became entranced by the intriguing mix of contemporary and vintage furniture. “It felt like a family’s house, ” Nunno says, “that had been collected over the years—where not everything matches, but it works because it has been put together with love and an interesting eye.”
