How to integrate the loft style into a modern interior while maintaining the warmth and coziness of a homely atmosphere? How to combine industrial aesthetics in decoration and antique décor or designer furniture? Answers to these questions can be obtained from a short photo tour of the living room of a New York apartment. Comfortable environment, a combination of modern interior design and retro furnishings, the use of contemporary artwork – all within a few square meters, while maintaining a sense of spaciousness and freedom.
Initially, the loft style arose during the arrangement of former industrial premises for residential apartments. Today, it is not necessary to live in a building that was once a factory hall or warehouse in order to organize an interior with industrial aesthetics. If a city apartment has sufficiently spacious rooms with high ceilings and large windows, then decorating its interior in the loft style will not be difficult. If you dislike the use of such loft motifs as open communications, large columns and floor structures exposed for display, then organizing brickwork as an accent of one of the walls is not difficult.
The sitting area of the living room is represented by a comfortable sofa with leather upholstery in a pleasant ocher shade, a coffee table of the original design and an arched floor lamp with a large fabric shade.

A sofa with leather upholstery looks great against a brick wall, creating a certain spirit of brutality in the living room interior.

In order to soften somewhat the brutal design of the sofa, you can use more «cosy» textiles as decoration for sofa cushions. Soft velor or even fur will become not only the highlight of the recreation area, but also bring color and texture variety to the interior of the entire room..
During the daytime, there is plenty of natural light in the living room, thanks to the large windows.

As always, the overall impression of the interior design is not only the appearance of the largest or most striking interior items. Any little things, decorative elements, textile design – everything shapes our perception of this or that space design. Filling the interior with things that are dear to the heart, we not only decorate the room, but also make it incredibly personalized and unique..
On one side of the sofa is a two-tier wheelchair table. This one is comfortable. The mobile station can serve both as a beverage and snack trolley at a party, or as a book stand on regular days.
