During New York design week last year Italian designer Piero Lissoni created the ultimate loft space. The perfect balance of Italian design with local, independent New York brands. A mix of classic and contemporary, the space was ideal for living and working. Set in a 4,000 square foot space in Brooklyn’s sunset park neighbourhood the loft’s architectural bones featured ceiling height iron framed windows, exposed radiators, bright white walls, concrete floors and huge open spaces. Dream loft living!
A mix of industrial and soft elements works in this space to create the ultimate NY loft style. Think glass, brass and natural fibres like linen. Indoor plants won’t go astray, taking advantage of the natural light.
Blank space is as much of a feature in this style as the design elements themselves. Notice large areas of concrete floor with no furniture that add to the drama of each room. If you’re fortunate enough to be living in a property with a similar style don’t feel the need to fill every inch of space.
