April 12, 2016
BOOKMARK

What is Urban Loft Style?

Loft apartments have origins dating back to the 1950s and 1960s and its popularity has led countless interior designers to replicate its look in smaller-scale homes. In our local context, it has evolved into the “loft style”, referring to an interior design scheme that takes on the iconic features of original loft apartments in the West. It is often a contrast between raw and refined, gritty and glamorous, laid-back and luxurious.

Is It For Everyone?

With over 20,000 home designs on Qanvast, our team came up with a list of "loft style" homes that suits four different types of personalities.

1. For The Artistic Soul

One of the biggest appeals of loft apartments is its industrial elements. Such features include exposed ceiling beams and ducts, structural steel beams, raw brick walls and concrete floors. These essential components, together with furniture, can turn any cookie-cutter apartment into a loft-like home that’s packed with character!

2. For The Modern Executive

Leather sofas, steel-accented tables and lighting, sleek home accessories, and vibrant artworks help to re-create a swanky loft-living lifestyle. Go for well-made sofas with unfussy silhouettes. Keep your belongings neatly stored, avoid clutter, and refrain from over-decorating to play up the spaciousness of the area!
