Your typical New York loft is a converted warehouse or factory in downtown Manhattan, existing in hip neighborhoods such as Soho, Nolita, Tribeca and the East and West Village. These areas all have some of the original spaces that were converted into residential lofts. These lofts consist of open floorplans with expansive windows and rugged details. These lofts are found throughout Manhattan, as is the one we are featuring in today’s article.
Designed in 2015 by Spanish interior designer Isabel López-Quesada, this spectacular industrial modern style loft is projected in the purest New York style. For this, walls are painted in white, giving prominence to the space and highlighting luminosity throughout the loft. The apartment is very spacious, with barely any divisions (another fundamental feature of this style), with the exception of some latticework, for visual separation of the rest of the area from the living room.
The “industrial air” has been achieved, keeping wrought iron columns, pipes without recess, exposed beams, brick and ductwork. The colors selected for the interior palette are in neutrals of white, gray and beige, although you will find a touch of color in the coffee table books and the velvety red pillows in the bedroom.
Typically, the decoration of a loft at first sight is usually quite cool, in this case, the result is really quite cozy. “Nor does one have to strictly associate the loft style to the minimalist decoration … here would be perfect a comfortable Louis XV, indeed, it would shine like a jewel” … states Quesada. The designer excels at this design style and indeed has done exceptional work in this loft.
What We Love: This industrial modern loft features plenty of character and charm with its exposed beams, brick and ductwork. The plush furnishings adds texture and warmth and invites you to sit down and relax. The open layout is functional and provides a seamless transition from one space to the next. Loft = stylish and chic with beautifully curated details.
