American Psycho: luxurious minimalism.

Although Patrick Bateman is not the best of people, and American Psycho (a 2000 film by Mary Harron and based on Bret Easton Ellis’s book) explores areas of the human being that are not the most virtuous, it cannot be denied that Mr. Bateman has an impeccable taste when it comes to interior decoration, especially his personal space.


Apart from the particular secret lifestyle of Mr. Bateman, his OC (obsessive-compulsive) personality trait is probably the one that leads him to keep up, in his personal New York nest, spaces in plain sight, empty, but with key elements that stand out, like on the spotlight, the selective mentality that this man possesses. Mr. Bateman could be considered a specialist of minimalism, lover of the simple, clean and neutral (but in the film we know his other side, which is, to say the least, quite 'particular'), so these elements make it clear how this man is two sides of the same coin.




The first thing that shows his good taste and preference for luxury furniture are his Barcelona chairs by the famous and well-known American architect, Ludwig Mies van de Rohe, a name that both experts and amateurs know the weight it has in design.


Secondly, striking with the neatness it exhibits, the Kate sofa by Patrick Pristine steals the attention, and accompanying it, the coffee table of the Austrian-Italian architect, Paolo Piva Alanda, which at first glance is not a big deal, but which has a geometric design underneath that gives the space an incredibly refined touch.
