A REVISIT: Bruno Frisoni’s Tangier Home



For those who have been following along, I’m sure you remember DPAGES feature on the Tangier oasis of Bruno Frisoni and his partner Hervé Van der Straeten. Well AD France has just paid the couple’s Moroccan home a follow up visit revealing never seen before nooks and crannies. Enjoy the tour!



Surrounded by Moorish architecture, buildings dating from the French protectorate, and fading traces of Art Deco – Frisoni wanted his three level home to be as rich in history and eclecticism as its surrounds. Each area of the home is treated to its own unique atmosphere, beginning at its most spare and simple on the ground floor.



The parlor is embellished with frescoes and woodwork by local artisans. The patent leather lounge chair was acquired from Christian Sapet at the French flea market in Saint-Ouen. The two tables are Moroccan/Portuguese and the niche is upholstered in an exotic mix of Balinese and Moroccan fabric.



The bath was inspired by traditional Syrian design.



The bedroom sports a playful pom pom coverlet which was woven in the souk. The nightstand is by Hervé Van der Straeten, the lamp vintage 1970s and the Chinese ceramic stools are from Asiatides.



On the top floor, a cozy smoke room takes its cues from sixties pop art.  The benches are adorned in Dedar fabric and India Mahdavi throw pillows. The coffee tables are by Hervé Van der Straeten, the stools from Habitat and the red ashtray by India Mahdavi. View D’s original feature on Van der Straten and Frisoni’s Tangier dream home here.
