The Great Jones Loft is an industrial loft-style home in New York City, designed by Union Studio, a California-based furniture and interior design company. The loft has been converted from a 1903 Noho factory, with practical and industrial design details that reflects the origins of the space without excessive ornamentation.
The loft’s design embraces the duality of a loft conversion, where the industrial origins blend with the residential use of the space. The brick walls and dark metal compliment the oak that’s been used throughout the space, adding to the industrial yet modern vibe. The white Carrara marble tiles and dining table contrast with the dark wood floor, while the open layout only heightens the sense of contrast. The color palette is striking and there’s a gradual lightening of tones from the floor to the ceiling.
For a space that’s been designed with an industrial past, Union Studio impregnates the space with a real sense of comfort that makes it a home, challenging our ideas of what a home is by giving us a chance to reevaluate our priorities on what makes a space truly a home.
