Neoclassical Loft

The challenge with this open loft in Soho was creating separation between the kitchen, dining room and living room without undertaking an intensive renovation.

These custom neoclassical glass screens are used like architecture, to divide the space, while the entrance hall features a side table by Maison Jansen Paris along with a whimsical gilt mirror designed by French artist-designer Hervé Van der Straeten.

The mirrored cabinet opens to reveal a bar and is flanked by Napoleon III and André Arbus chairs. Huge silk curtains are used to both accentuate the ceiling height and define the different spaces.

I added sofa seating in the dining room along with the dining chairs to make it comfortable and allow the owners to use it for breakfast with their kids and as a place to hang out and read the papers in the morning. The sconces in the living room are repurposed ceiling fixtures with an industrial feel and delicate shades, chosen to reflect the original industrial purpose of the building.
