A bachelor pad was transformed into an elegant industrial space infused with vintage and antique pieces by Antonio Martins Interior Design in Noe Valley, a district of San Francisco, California. The design began with the client purchasing this award winning home that was designed by Zack De Vito Architecture. The designers had worked with their client on past projects, which helped with knowing their taste, style and overall requirements. The new homeowner requested a cutting edge design scheme with a touch of whimsy; it needed to hold up to the architecture while at the same time incorporating a few pieces from his current home. The re-design started with the living room with a silk area rug in in an orange-to-gray hue paired with designer seating that invites conversation and is ideal for entertaining. An over-sized industrial mold was affixed to the wall to add a bright burst of color to the white backdrop. The open concept space also features a stunning dining area delineated by a colorful Missoni area rug. Playful black and white art work hangs on the wall, picked up by the client at an auction, entitled “Dancing Partners” by Robert Longo. The space is furnished with a live edge wood dining table, surrounded by armchairs of natural leather. A set of “85 lamps” chandeliers hangs over the table to create a dramatic effect, designed by Droogand. The result is a six story home that features concrete flooring mixed with warm tones of wood and comfortable furnishings to create a space that is welcoming and extremely relaxing to come home to. What do you think, could you find yourself living here?
Living room furnishings includes Latin Chairs by designer Christian Liagre, Papa Bear chairs and ottomans by Hans Wagner and a clean lined sofa designed by Knoll.
We have featured some other incredible bachelor pads here on 1 Kindesign, so in case you missed them and are looking for some more awesome ideas, have a look: Modern apartment with a sleek sculptural staircase and Unbelievable dream house of an art collector.
Beyond the sliding glass doors of the dining area is a cozy outdoor living room, decorated with a teak sofa, a coffee table comprised of a couple of Chinese “scholar stones”. To add a nice visual impact to the space, the designers added a metal sculpture by Agelio Battle, which ties in beautifully to the other steel elements that are already in the garden.
Accessed by way of a dramatic steel and acrylic staircase up to the sixth floor, we find an impeccably designed master bedroom suite. The wall coverings are Seagrass by Phillip Jeffery, which infuses a much needed warmth into the space. All the furnishings are custom pieces drafted by the interior designer’s and manufactured by Fabian Fine Furniture.
