After meeting the owners of this SoHo loft in Manhattan New York, Studiolav got inspired by their diverse background, vibrant personalities, as well as their contemporary art collection and the concept for the interior design, started quickly forming into a solid idea.
Their intriguing collection of contemporary art and photographic artworks was one of the first things Studiolav came across in an attempt to understand the clients’ aesthetics and temperament. Researching and working with them from the very beginning, they created a space that would work both as a home but also as a place to socialize and work from.
The challenge here was to define the different areas & functions: living area/lounge, formal dining room, kitchen, workspace/study and gym without compromising the openness of the space and the warmth of the morning rays.
One of the essential requirements that had to be met, among others, was the potential to host social events for dinner or aperitif that could accommodate 10 to 15 people simultaneously. The main social areas, living room, and dining area have been carefully considered to encourage social interaction in spacious yet cozy clusters and dressed with all the essentials to comfortably sit and entertain the desired number of guests.
A well-defined area to be used as a casual working station had to be included within the interior design. The task has been to create a comfortable and quiet place to work from home including a desk that would, at the same time, merge evenly with the rest of the space, considering the open plan layout of the loft.
Adjacent to the working station, a relaxing study corner has been created. A comfortable armchair with a footstool is sitting on top of a vibrant and lush carpet set against a rich velvet curtain, along with a bookcase act as the defining pieces.
The success of this interior design project lies in the creation of a space with the look and feel of a luxury contemporary home, while at the same time it remains inviting and can comfortably meet the daily needs of its inhabitants. The whole design, including furniture and lighting, its finishes and colors not only compliment the collection of the owners’ contemporary art but also celebrate their vibrant and extrovert personalities.
