Chris Cushingham is a 24 year old recent design school graduate who emailed us to share his downtown L.A. loft - his recent project. He completed his loft in a hurry and on a really tight budget and I am loving the results. It's modern, functional and industrial with unique furnishings. I am a huge fan of anything with an industrial vibe so I'm saving this one in my inspiration folder. Great job Chris!!! Might I add that Chris is part of the cast of a new HGTV show called "Design School" airing here in Canada, and is hunting for a job at a creative architecture or design firm so architects/designers - scoop this talented guy up!
