Loft Interior

Since the 1970s, the loft has remained a popular choice of dwelling. Passed into everyday language, the word derives from the German word "luft", meaning "space" and "air". These terms are in perfect harmony with the spirit of the loft: a large, open-concept, unobstructed space.

As a designer apartment steeped in history, it is generally nestled in the heart of old rehabilitated industrial spaces, such as old factories, workshops, or barns. As a result, lofts benefit from beautiful volumes and a relatively high ceiling height. This makes it easy to create a mezzanine and duplicate the living space while maintaining an airy, modern, and refined style. 

The beauty of the lift lies in the details. For instance, the way it feels like a cocoon, designed with both old and modern character. This is evident through the exposed beams and large windows that inspire many interior designers. Being able to keep the waxed concrete floor or the original red brick walls in a loft is essential to achieve that popular industrial look. But over time and the inevitable wear-and-tear, it will require upkeep. Opt for a floor covering with a raw appearance, like concrete, laminate, cement tiles, or solid oak parquet.

The industrial loft, by definition, has a minimalist style. It is important to warm up this large room by choosing the right furnishings and adequate wall decoration. To maintain this "raw" spirit, atypical or recycled industrial furniture is generally favored in this type of dwelling: a large wooden table for the dining room, a metal coffee table, bar stools, etc.

The historical and artistic tradition of the loft establishes this addition of artworks. Choose large contemporary paintings with abstract features to occupy the massive sections of the walls. For example, opt for a painting by Vincent Tagliabue or Caroline Vis, reminiscent of Jackson Pollock's dripping. Chic and understated, consider timeless black and white photographs which give a touch of nostalgia to this environment. To echo the loft's materials, draw on the work of Matthew Porter. The latter photographs the material and spare parts of all kinds (wood, iron, springs, or shelves). On the contrary, if you want to soften the industrial style, try the sulfurous clichés of Maurice Renoma.

Bonus decor ideas for the loft: Street artworks (graffiti and stencils) can perfectly match the industrial decoration and will perfectly match a brick wall. As if they were bathed in their natural environment, the works of JonOne, Miss Tic, or Jef Aérosol, will be highlighted and will give character to your original interior.
