A bold-hued, overscale pendant and bright modern artwork stand out vividly against the gray-black palette of this industrial kitchen and dining space. Stainless steel stair rails, hardware and appliances gleam in the modern lighting, while upholstered chairs and barstools add an element of softness to the hard-edged space.
This neutral bathroom features a vanity crafted from mesquite wood with a beautiful waxed finish and simple bronze cast sink. Mosaic brown and tan wall tiles include a few colorful turquoise tiles, while two caged pendant lights hang on either side of a circular mirror, giving the space an industrial touch.
A wall covered in chalkboard paint creates a place for the family to jot notes or doodle in this contemporary family-friendly kitchen. Gray quartz countertops, concrete floors and bar stools add to the industrial feel of the space, while white cabinets and pendant light fixtures add pops of color and texture.
Exposed ductwork and ceiling beams bring an industrial vibe to the main dining room at Il Corso. Dark red chairs surround each table with black and white linens, and globe-shaped pendant lights dangle above, adding a fun element to the design. Reclaimed wood flooring and natural stone walls complete the look.
This neutral master bathroom features a double sink vanity with exposed plumbing that –– in addition to the polished concrete floors –– adds an industrial look to the space. Two mirrors and a pair of pendant lights are positioned above the vanity, while a wood plank ceiling and woven area rug add natural touches.
Upholstered dining chairs with nailhead trim surround a long wooden table, perfect for large gatherings. Glamorous chandeliers hang above the table and the kitchen island, while pendant lights over the bar bring a touch of industrial style. The open floor plan between the kitchen and dining room creates a space that's family friendly and great for entertaining.
The dark natural wood ceiling beam and matching wood base of the bar standout against the polished white fixtures of this kitchen design. The bar space is anchored to a column and set up with three metal barstools under a pair of pendant lights with an industrial flair. A chevron tile backsplash subtly decorates the room.
A long center island is topped by a rustic-industrial, candelabra-style pendant fixture, driving home this kitchen's modern farmhouse appeal. Woven seating gives the room a casual vibe, while all-white cabinetry and a white subway tile backsplash create a sleek backdrop that brings it a modern edge. Open shelving is both functional and aesthetically pleasing.
In this open dining and living room, the striking two-way fireplace acts as a room divider, and the cool gray concrete creates a modern backdrop. Over the table, glass pendants have an industrial laboratory feel. The stained wood table and chairs and ochre-painted cabinet warm up the space.
Blown glass chandeliers, acrylic chairs and a row of cosmic pendants bring a feeling of lightness to this open, modern loft. Carved from the top floor of a century-old St. Louis warehouse, the 7,500-square-foot loft features 18-foot ceilings, original arched windows and industrial elements like exposed brick, concrete columns and metal piping. The open concept design is ideal for entertaining.
Ample white-painted cabinetry extends to the ceiling, maximizing storage in this transitional kitchen. Soft gray walls tie in with a gray subway tile backsplash, creating a pale palette that gives the space a clean, airy feel. Modern pendants with an industrial edge hang above a large island that offers additional storage. A row of windows above the sink fills the space with natural light.
Away from the office the home continues to expand, stretching into this beautiful dining room. Here, as in the living room, the couple's modern tastes complement the industrial bones of the space for an enticing combination. Black continues to be a strong accent color here, included through a pair of sculptural table lamps and one very statuesque planter. The glass top table and patterned, silver-metallic pendants solidify the modern aesthetic alongside art on both walls.
The kitchen takes a colorful, industrial turn, showcasing Naomi’s fondness for metallics. The island is topped with an oxidized, steel countertop. The material is a unique twist on the usual granite or marble found in most kitchens. The steel top will patina over time. Its rough-hewn texture is also a pleasing contrast to the stainless steel refrigerator and brass elements in the kitchen. Cabinets in a gray-blue tone contrast with the brass pendant overhead. Naomi discovered the pair of vintage white bar stools and painted the legs gold for a finishing metallic touch.
Among the hallmarks of loft spaces are their size and the visibility of materials that might otherwise be hidden or treated to a smooth finish: metal pipes and ductwork and well-worn wood flooring, for example. Architect May Sung explains how she used these elements to loft-style look: “In this kitchen, we utilized proportion and texture to create interest to the space. The texture of the reclaimed wood juxtaposed next to the industrial element of the table legs created warmth and coziness, emphasized by the over-scaled ceiling pendant.”
Once a raw, industrial space, designers brought in glitzy design details to create a unique residential space. First, they raised the ceilings from eight foot to nearly eleven, creating a more dramatic space. Then, they installed a luxurious black and white tile floor and complimentary copper pendant lights that became the focal point of the space. Finally, they brought in rich, leather furniture and installed a glamorous wet bar to the space.
Favorite feature: The lighting, which is a custom installation of multiple pendants sourced on Ebay, is definitely what catches most people's eye —it’s the conversation starter that gets all the compliments. That design element set against the truly amazing view of the Long Island Sound and the New York City skyline make for a stunning visual. The custom bar is also exceptional with its luxurious materials, from the antique mirror in the back to the exotic wood cabinetry and beautiful Saint Laurent marble on the counter.
