Cool loft space

I remember looking at a loft at the bottom of Potrero Hill years ago and kind of wished we'd bought it.... don't get me wrong - I am very happy in my pretty San Franciscan Victorian all painted pretty.... but I still love loft spaces. So I was very happy to see this month's Elle Decor which features a fabulous loft space in Tribeca.

I really like the way the designer uses the two upholstered daybeds and paired them with the tripod floor lamp and the Saarinen Tulip table. The large photograph propped against makes a bold statement and is by Iran Issa-Khan and the small one displayed between the windows is by Horst P. Horst.

More photographic work by Iran in the master bedroom:

Open shelves in the foyer hold pre-Columbian artifacts, Michele Oka Doner candles, and vintage lamps from Holland:

The steel table and settees were custom made in Mexico and are grouped with a photograph by Robert Curran:

In the dining area, bent-plywood chairs by Norman Cherner mingle with seats from CB2:

  1. I'm the same way - I love and admire both loft spaces and buildings with historical character. You're lucky to have one of them!
