Although the kitchen in this loft apartment is small, it still has the amenities of a larger kitchen. A full size refrigerator, dishwasher, oven and microwave allow for ease in cooking, while extra counter space was created with the addition of the kitchen island. On the other side of the island, a breakfast bar adds casual seating, extending the entertaining space of this loft apartment.
This loft building in New York City's Tribeca neighborhood was originally built in 1896. It was first a bonded warehouse and later used by the Grabler Manufacturing Company who made pipe fittings. Today, its seven stories house chic loft-style apartments.
Just off the dining area, designers created a masculine, contemporary living room in this loft apartment. With two leather chairs providing luxurious seating in front of a large screen TV, this is the perfect living room space to catch a game and enjoy time with friends, and with the connectedness of the loft spaces, the party can continue throughout the home without making anyone feel excluded, extending the entertaining space of this loft apartment.
Anyone seated at this drawing table couldn't ask for better light. The windows were one of the areas the designers paid special attention to: Limestone and fir and pine beams were uncovered under all the windows. And all the original radiator covers were sandblasted and repainted in a handsome black.
Designers have made the most of this compact space, including an open concept dining area, kitchen and living area. From each of these spaces, the homeowner has a magnificent view of the Atlanta Beltline and plenty of seating to entertain friends and family.
Against the wall in the loft space, designers created vignettes to meet the owner's needs. In one corner, a blue chair rests in front of a bookshelf to create a reading nook bathed in light, while just a few feet down a keyboard sits underneath a window, providing the owners with a creative space in their loft.
From the street level, designers replaced the home's original glass windows with frosted glass to add a layer of privacy to the home without the bulk of adding window treatments. Wrought iron bars add security, while complementing the sleek, modern style of the interior spaces.
The grand look of the natural wood walls and ceiling create an elegant and rustic design in this loft apartment. A tiered chandelier hangs from the peak of the room over the coffee table centered in the living room. Gorgeous, decorative leather chairs and a brown sofa are situated over a large animal hide rug.
