I find raw, industrial spaces very inspiring. Location shoot venues are my favourites as they are typically filled with some of the most random bits of furniture and oddities (ie. a pommel horse, because you never know what type of photo shoot or movie might need that!). Shoot Factory has some of the most eclectic and quirky industrial spaces around so I went through their site and picked out some spaces that really stood out. Now I want to go thrifting!!
To end off loft madness week (this was totally unplanned) I wanted to share this former warehouse with you (I think it is located in Montreal). This one has lots of great industrial touches - also with help from some exposed beams and ductwork and what appear to be original concrete floors. I would be perfectly happy living in a space like this. Via Decormag.
McIntosh Poris Associates is a Michigan-based architecture, interior and urban design firm that I am now a huge fan of. They took a historic structure and gave it some funk with lots of rustic and industrial touches. They painted out the wood work black (OH YES THEY DID!), and kept the walls white for contrast. Warm colours in the furnishings keep things cozy. This home ROCKS!
Since we seem to be on a roll with commercial spaces today, here is another one that was sent to us recently by G-sign, a small design studio in Moscow that specializes in branding and commercial design. This restaurant called Funny Cabany is so cool - I adore the centre tiled cube (the kitchen?), the use of reclaimed wood and industrial light fixtures, and OHHH those brown leather chairs!
