A loft in Manhattan with an industrial stimulus
The Interior Designer Liz Tiesi was commissioned with the renovation of a textile factory in a House. So, she wanted to keep the industrial master. But the family has two children and the room should be family-friendly. This resulted in a fantastic loft, full of salvaged and reclaimed treasures, such as for example such elements as barn, Independence Hall in Philadelphia and even a Tastycake factory.

Location: Tribeca neighborhood in ManhattanSize: 390 square meters; 4 bedroom, 3½ bathrooms
In a large open room, the living room, dining room and the kitchen are located. The exposed cable channels and Rails light carry the industrial atmosphere. Such rail lights are quite suitable for lofts, they are flexible, and you can set the lamps on works of art or other furniture.
The whole floor is made of old Hickory wood.
In such open lofts you can find private space difficult. One feels as part of an exhibition. Therefore, as a cave with an old fire door for the family was separated.
