Design Statement: Broosk Saib

Broosk Saib, interior designer and exquisite dresser, talks The Rake through his most beloved trinkets, his loyalty to Rubinacci and his penchant for rich colour and texture.

What can one say about a man of the caliber of Broosk Saib. A high-profile interior designer, exquisite dresser, culture-vulture and all round good sport, his design work feels very much like an extension of himself (taking account of the requirements and tastes of his clients of course), retaining a regal, distinguished quality, rich in colour and yet restrained.

Like his designs, his manner is charmingly refined and almost impossibly elegant – yet he channels a sense of natural and thoroughly hospitable warm-heartedness at all times. Certainly, should you be lucky enough to make his acquaintance and be invited into his London riverside pad, you’ll be greeted with a warmth and sincerity that is quite charming, as well as a damn good espresso and a privileged glimpse into a wardrobe that is enough to turn even the most contented aesthete green with envy. An opportunity not to be missed then for The Rake’s latest Pocket Guide.
