Having lived in Washington, DC for the past 4 years I have watched the city literally transform right before my eyes, it really is a beautiful place. The District has great eateries, shopping, and tons of underground boutiques that serve as gems to the areas fashionistas. Being one myself I find myself frequenting such places as Logan Circle, U Street, Eastern Market, and 17th street. The choices for home design and fashion are pretty decent if I do say so myself.
Recently I began working at Muleh, a furniture and fashion boutique, meaning “to come home” in javanese. The store carries runway designers and features select Indonesian and Filipino furniture designers, including lighting and accessories. Check out this excerpt about them below!
Muléh, a successful, highly curated, fashion and home furnishings showroom headquartered in Washington, DC, has soft-opened its 2nd eclectic lifestyle concept in New York City’s Meatpacking District.
Muléh’s lifestyle concept is rooted in the belief that the creative process inherent of fashioning a look and structuring a room follow a similar ethos. Fit & proportion, scale & form, color & finish, feel & texture, ensemble & architecture become interchangeable paradigms within Muléh’s borders.
Muléh in New York will closely track the same international selection of exceptional designers offered in the DC location. As a testament to Muleh’s unique curation, all the current clothing designers (3.1 Philip Lim & Mulberry excluded) will be carried in the New York store. Muléh’s design selections of out-of-the-mainstream brands will expand New York’s fashionistas availability to obtain such critically acclaimed but hard to find designers such as Vivienne Westwood’s Anglomania and Red Label, Jean Paul Gautier, Smythe, MM6, Ter et Bantine, Sea, Hache, By Malene Birger, Faliero Sarti, LD Tuttle, Chie Mihara, Lizzie Fortunato, Paula Mendoza, Coclico, and foundation-building knit lines Majestic and Autumn Cashmere.
Avant-garde, environmentally sustainable home furnishings from Kenneth Cobonpue, Hive and Ango will punctuate the Muléh New York space with designs not yet seen in Manhattan (major design shows aside). Cobonpue designs are exhibited in Nobu restaurants on 57th Street and in Dubai. Ango’s 8 foot long silk cocoon lighting cloud was installed last year at the Museum of Arts and Design on Columbus Circle. Chairs, tables, beds, lights, outdoor furniture will cycle through the showroom broadening the range of design choices for residential clients and contract interior designers.
Located at 30 Gansevoort Street between Greenwich & Hudson, the Muléh space features a clean, urban palette with booming skylights and polished concrete floors. The hard canvas is softened with warm modern organic furnishings & lighting. Just as the Muléh in DC serves as a event space and cultural medium for the community, Muléh in the Meatpacking District will host functions throughout the year.
Muléh was established in 1999 in order to convey the creative spirit weaving both fashion and interiors under one roof yielding an innovative lifestyle concept. Over the years, Muléh has been featured in the leading shelter and fashion media including Interior Design, Surface, Architectural Digest, Elle, In Style, and Lucky.
