When it comes to loft furniture one cannot help but focus attention on the particularities of the American style ee of the industrial style, that is on that suggestive trend that is the real soul of this suggestive type of home.
The loft concept took shape in the distant 1940s in the industrial districts of New York when, with the expansion of urban areas, the productions moved to the suburbs leaving the old offices in disuse. These huge buildings soon became both artistic workshops and homes for those particular bohemian personalities looking for low-cost and naturally nonconformist homes.
The old factories, transformed into lofts, offered low rents and above all, from a functional point of view to the artistic needs, excellent lighting, high ceilings and decidedly large spaces. They thus became an expression of freedom and dynamism that has continued to this day, embodying what is defined precisely as American style.
As you have surely guessed, overseas the concept of industrial recovery has always been practically in vogue and, if you want to recreate the perfect atmospheres of New York lofts, all you have to do is let yourself be inspired by our photo gallery, full of furnishing ideas and suggestions.
How to furnish a New York-style loft
Quattro Studio project
Large open spaces, huge windows, exposed beams and, inevitably, brick walls capable of giving a real dive into the past … an American-style loft will enhance these particular elements by making them an integral part of the interior design. A perfect example of this is the project you are admiring created inside a disused cotton mill and transformed into a real design jewel with a taste that perfectly marries vintage and industrial.
Roman Kolyada project
Yurov Interiors project
True homage to the tradition of the New York loft, with inserts and decorations inspired by the famous Marvel comics, here is a truly impeccable and surprising project that makes attention to individual details its strong point. The search for exquisitely vintage elements, the enhancement of the high ceilings through the use of bright colors, as well as the coexistence between concrete panels and old bricks, make this 180 sqm loft the perfect example of American style.
Alex Rey project
We go from a decidedly large size to a rather small one to show you how to design a perfect American-style loft having only a 36 sqm studio apartment available.
The open plan is divided by a central wall and every single piece of furniture or finish is chosen for its vintage character and reference to the industrial factor. The inclusion of lively elements such as the lime green Smeg refrigerator is fantastic.
Project by NORDES Design Group
An inevitable brown leather sofa, an armchair that seems to come directly from past eras and a free and dynamic environment perfect to embody the bohemian style. The lofts you are admiring blend industrial and vintage character but do not forget a modern touch that allows them to be placed in a perfectly contemporary era.
