The teacher badly explains loft
Loft has appeared in the early XX
century. If loft was a human, I would have described it "not an ordinary one".
...when mom says your apartment looks like a factory.
...when friends post on Instagram photos of your apartment because «man, it’s cool, especially a barrel instead of a wardrobe»
...when you do exercises in the morning, because an excuse "no space" doesn't work.
...when wood, glass, stone and concrete. And they perfectly go together.
...when an old chest of drawers not only fits into the modern interior, but you don’t imagine the apartment without this piece of junk
...when you ride on a chair to the fridge because all your furniture has wheels.
...when paintings are NEAR the wall and noone says "why don’t you hang it on?".
...when your dream about a window from floor to ceiling come true.
...when the architecture is transformed into a state of mind.
Everyone knowsthe loft. But not everyone– from whence this style came. The ideato alterabandonedmanufacturesappeared inNew York. The Great Depression made land prices jump.Ownersof industrial enterprises tightened their beltsandrelocated businessto the сheap outskirts. Giganticpremiseswere left.
“In the 1950s nobody wanted to live in SoHo,” says the interior
designer Valerie Pasquiou. “It was dirty, it was dangerous, it was the
worst place to be.”
"Nothing should be wasted", – thought people of art. They began to work on the scheme: rent a factory or warehouse and turn into a studio. Musicians was looking for the atmospheric space for concerts and rehearsals.
People look closely on abandoned premises and found a special charm in them. High ceilings, lots of light and space. In addition to this, the price for renting pleased with modesty. The verdict was set – to live.

Talk furniture and combine. Loft gives special attention to details. Bolts, oversized nails, wheels and other metal accents recall the days of factory machinery. Barren walls are decorated with posters, graffiti, street signs.
Say hello to sofas, armchairs, ottomans, chairs, benches.
Metal accents, rustic furniture. Steel plate and stainless steel kitchen apron. Ceiling pipes and beams. These things make a kitchen loft.
Loft is flexible as plasticine. It means no boundaries for accessories and materials. Furniture differs from the rough wood to chrome-plated metal. Loft creates ideal conditions for the development of ideas. Braided hammock, a sofa or chair made of transparent plastic? You are welcome.
