After purchasing and remodeling a TriBeCa loft, the homeowner contacted Decor Aid to help furnish the space and bring it all together for the family.
An open floor plan and lots of natural light set the tone for the design concept. It needed to accommodate a newborn baby and the client’s desire to outfit the space with industrial-inspired furniture that was also flexible for entertaining. She requested a conversation nook—for cocktails and charcuterie—that could flow into the dining area. All of which had to be separate from where the family would watch television.
The client had originally envisioned an all-white furniture scheme, but the team advised against this. An all-white arrangement can look washed out in a light-abundant space. Instead, they went for a high-contrast, textured neutral palette, to reflect the breadth of materials used in the remodel of this chic, urban loft. The white-washed brick wall was the main color inspiration for this project: muted taupes overlaid with cloudy greys. To compliment the existing elements, they incorporated materials as diverse as cowhide, suede, cotton linen weaves, fur, and matte metal throughout the home.
To establish the conversation nook, the team sourced a quadruplet of grey armchairs, which snuggly fit around a black, cowhide area rug. A wood dining table with matte-metal supports sits adjacent to the kitchen, and is framed by a brushed-metal circular mirror. A sectional couch separates the television area from the rest of the home. The final result is a hip, industrial loft space that this welcoming family of three can now call home.
