With its reconfigured layout, designer furniture and large contemporary art this SoHo, Manhattan loft is a blend of sophistication and bohemian charisma. The space’s white painted brick walls and iconic iron columns are celebrated in this coveted oasis in bustling Manhattan. Green Street by interior designer Augusta Hoffman.

Up there with my love of converted churches is my love of converted barns. I might even love barns more because of the rustic, casual nature of their structures. “The Grateful Farm” in the Hudson Valley was built in the 1920s and purchased days before the pandemic as a weekend retreat but it sounds like the owners moved in and never left. How could you leave this picturesque scene and all that open space?! Lori Paranjape created an ideal hangout/sleepover/casual home that I know I could never leave, and you probably have to drag your guests out kicking and screaming. Photos: Andy Ryan
At first glance it looks like hip loft living but in actual fact it’s an interior designer’s showroom. A place to welcome clients, support the creative community and an ever-changing showcase of design ideas. An artfully curated space with depth and individuality. Welcome to Aker Interiors Showroom.

“The apartment is located in Warsaw, in the Wola neighbourhood. The new plan required a major renovation and redevelopment project. The interior has been equipped with furniture and accessories designed by Loft Kolasiński, such as a library, dining table, wardrobe, bench with storage function, desk, coffee table, bed, and bedside tables, as well as kitchen, bathroom and office furniture. We also designed elements of steel joinery. In the project in Wola, we used a new technology of covering the fronts of the kitchen, bathroom and wardrobe furniture with the same plaster that we also covered the walls with. To equip the apartment, we have also collected unique furniture and lamps from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, which have undergone carpentry and upholstery renovation. Particularly noteworthy is the restored desk from Prague made to order in a single copy in the 1950s. Another unique object can be found in the study on the mezzanine-a grey armchair by Ivan Matusik, designed in the 1970s for the Kyjev hotel in Bratislava. To decorate the walls, we used photographs by Erwin Olaf, the duo Billy & Hells, and a painting by Apolonia Sokół.”
I love it when Loft Kolasiński share their work with us and this modern Warsaw loft is no exception. Clean, contemporary lines with carefully considered details.

The idea was to give new life to an industrial space once occupied by a coffee machine factory. I wanted it to be a modern and welcoming loft, with a shaft in the heart of the house, which acts as a garden and amplifies the brightness, giving a sense of continuity between inside and outside.
This is my dream loft layout – with a central courtyard I would layer with plants. The Milanese House – Via Ventura – a fun and eclectic space designed by Milan-based Nap Atelier that is filled with vintage goodness.
