How to integrate loft style in a modern interior while preserving the warmth and comfort of the home atmosphere? How to combine industrial aesthetics in the decoration and antique decor pieces and designer furniture? Answers to these questions can be found from a small photo tour of the loft living room of one of New York apartments. Comfortable atmosphere, the combination of modern interior objects and retro style furniture, use of contemporary artistic works– and all this just on a few square meters maintaining the feeling of space and freedom.
Initially, loft style originated in the arrangement of former industrial buildings as residential apartments. Nowadays, to organize the interior in the spirit of industrial design it is not necessary to live in a building that was once a factory workshop or storage room. If a city apartment has rather spacious rooms with high ceilings and large windows, decoration of its interior in loft style will not be difficult. If you don’t like using such loft motives as open communication networks, great columns and floor constructions not covered for effect, it is easy to organize brickwork of one of the walls as an accent.
Rest area of the living room is represented by a comfortable sofa with leather upholstery of a pleasant ocher shade, a coffee table of the original design and a floor lamp with arched modification and a large fabric lampshade. Nice little things creating a cozy atmosphere make the image complete–carpet with a print and rubbing effect and a small stand made of a piece of wood.
Using a stump as an interior object – is it not self-irony and uniqueness of design? You should agree that production of such an original stand needs little time and money, and this piece of furniture will bring a lot of natural warmth and notes of uniqueness to the living room atmosphere.
Sofa with leather upholstery looks great on the background of a brick wall, creating in the interior of the living room a certain spirit of brutality. This is a rather practical option for apartments with small children, where snowy white sofas can be present in the interior as magazine illustrations only. In order to soften the brutal design of the sofa, you can use more “friendly” textiles for decorating cushions. Soft suede or fur will not only highlight the rest area but also will bring a diversity of color and texture to the interior of the entire room.
During daylight hours, space of the living room has enough natural light thanks to the large windows. The dark period has several lighting options – central chandelier for the bright light at the time of whole family gatherings or entertaining of guests in the living room space. For a more intimate atmosphere, scattering lights of the floor lamp with an arc-shaped stand and a linen lampshade will be more appropriate.
Snow white coffee table with a glossy table top and steel shine of legs becomes a touch of modernity in the image of the living room. Comfortable, ergonomic shape and stable design allow the table to easily become a place for sitting if the living room accommodates several people for a party.
As always, the overall impression of the room design is formed not only by the appearance of the largest and bright interior objects. Any fine details, decorative items, textile designs – everything shapes our perception of space decoration. Filling the interior with things dear to our heart, we are not just decorating the room, but also making it incredibly personalized and unique.
A double-deck-wheel table is located on one side of the sofa. This handy mobile station may serve both as a trolley for snacks and drinks at a party or as a stand for books in ordinary days. Lovers of meals “by the TV” will also appreciate this piece of furniture in their living rooms. In addition, it is easy to transport from the kitchen and back with dirty dishes.
On the other side of the rest zone, short meals segment is located. If two persons live in such apartment, a small round table and a couple of comfortable chairs may well arrange a dining area.
Light by external impressions, but steady and strong by its characteristics, furniture of a small dining area does not weigh down the interior and helps to create an easy and relaxed atmosphere in the whole living room. The lightness of the short meals segment is achieved with the help of a background of light, translucent curtains.
Several live green plants and the interior of the entire living room space is changed, filled with spring freshness and it seems that you can even feel the smell of fresh leaves, just looking at photos.
