Loft Peeping: PJ Mattan & Jett House

trampoline by pjmattanThe Design Files, an Australian website, featured the White Street loft of PieterJan (PJ) Mattan and Jett House. It has terrific style, which is maddening because Mattan is only 26 and they’ve only lived there for two-and-a-half years. (He’s the “creative director and co-founder of Bezar, an online marketplace for contemporary design and homewares”; House is a UX designer.)

Also, they have a tepee, a trampoline, “a fully functional drone, and all kinds of aeronautical models.” As Mattan explained, “I would like to create and live in a couple of very different kind of spaces. I have lots of new space ideas! This one I like to call an eclectic creative playground.”

There’s more text (by Lucy Feagins) and a few more photos (by Eve Wilson) in the Design Files article, including this nugget: “‘This area was pretty rough for a while in the ’50s and ’60s’ says PJ. ‘Next door was the famous Mudd Club frequented by Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Basquiat and his girlfriend Madonna, Lou Reed, etc!’. Whilst some of that unique NYC mid century magic may have faded, there’s no doubt this is still a very special spot to live.” You’ll just sound old if you point out that the Mudd Club was a late 70s/early 80s thing, and anyway, the notion of midcentury Madonna does have a certain appeal. Also, check out PJ on Instagram for more photos of the loft and his generally enviable lifestyle. (The pic above is from there, as is the one of the flower arrangement below.)
