For two decades, Mona Hajj has crafted interiors that combine a far-reaching global vision with an American emphasis on elegance, comfort and simplicity. Her distinct and distinctly original aesthetic voice derives from what is surely a unique collection of qualities. Through her education in Europe, Lebanon, and the United States and her extensive travels, Hajj developed both an eye for the defining detail and an embracing familiarity with an international range of aesthetic influences – a combination that makes her work at once highly specific, and culturally and historically diverse.
Hajj’s instinct for selecting the ideal element, be it an object, furnishing or textile, is a central component of her style, and gives it, not only its singularity, but its serenity. Yet despite her ability to distill her designs to their essentials, they feel neither overly formal nor forbidding. Rather, Hajj’s belief in ease and availability, whether in the city, country or beside the sea, results in interiors – no matter the style or period – that are colorful, textural and delightfully, abundantly livable. As the designer herself puts it, "When people walk in, I want them to feel their home is the only place in the world they want to be."
Mona Hajj has been selected as one of Architectural Digest’s 100 top designers and architects, and her work has been published in numerous magazines and received much recognition. Her first book, Interior Visions, will be published on March 29, 2011.
