This spacious basement great room features an exposed red brick wall that acts as a focal point for the room's otherwise traditional decor. A natural wood entertainment center is positioned in front of the all, while a matching coffee table sits at the center of the sitting area.
Modern furnishings tread lightly on the distinctive architecture of this white loft apartment in Manhattan’s Tribeca neighborhood. A sleek steel dining table is surrounded by sinuous leather chairs from Ligne Roset. The whimsical, leaf-like chandelier is by Moooi.
This corner kitchen area in a loft apartment feels warm and inviting, and at the same time modern and sleek. The exposed brick echoes industrial design, which is juxtaposed by the contemporary stainless steel counters and appliances and the funky modern barstools. Hardwood floors tie all the design elements together.
A gorgeous patio borrows element from several design styles, making it feel both rustic and contemporary. Unique features include the tall, framed fireplace; large cabinets surrounding the fireplace; exposed brick wall and stone floors.
The homeowners wanted to keep a handful of pieces used in their previous home, as well as some heirlooms newly acquired, including a stunning wood file cabinet. Those pieces led to this living room's eclectic design plan. Lively accessories, like a bright yellow vase and colorful artistic print, help balance the dark furniture pieces and exposed brick walls.
This lovely open plan living and dining area gracefully mixes a number of different materials. Most notably, wide plank Maribou wood floors pair with an exposed brick accent wall for an organic, unfussy feel.
This living space in a loft apartment could double for a dining room, game room or just a place for conversation. Brick walls and reclaimed hardwood floors bring maximum impact, accented by a large mirror and picture window.
Modern meets traditional in this urban loft space. A modern accent wall in shades of black and gray creates a separation from the home's other spaces. The structure's existing exposed brick wall brings a historical aura and industrial style. The large sectional sofa is sleek and streamlined, and the coffee table, chair and arc lamp add to the modern theme.
Although this open-plan kitchen and dining area actually is in a loft — in a converted bag factory in Nashville — the principles designer Jason Arnold followed will work in any setting. He says: “The kitchen is opposite the living area, in a large, open space that automatically lends itself to entertaining and family living. We painted the walls, trim, and cabinets the same soft grey to make the spaces feel as one. Because it is essentially a large room with a kitchen at one end, I wanted the kitchen to blend seamlessly into the space which is why there are no upper cabinets and instead, there is a large pantry armoire to the right. The dining table acts as the visual separation from kitchen to living.”
This office nook in a loft apartment is a great spot to get the job done. There's ample counter space for computers and devices -- plus large bookshelves installed above -- and even a window seat for a quick break and gaze out the window into the city.
Exposed brick and enormous windows provide an urban backdrop for this dining room. A mix of seating around a long, wood dining table creates a casual atmosphere. Overhead, pendants made from repurposed wine bottles enliven the room both day and night.
Large arched windows and exposed brick wall and beams give this loft-style kitchen an urban feel. A copper range hood hangs by the layered white cabinets, and a large black island with a marble countertop contrasts beautifully with white and wood elements. A variety of pendant lights illuminates the room and large black-and-white artwork on the staircase wall.
