Lofty Example

Barcelona Loft Refurbishment by Serrat-Tort and Marta Castellano

When the opportunity arose to combine two apartments to create a 300 square metre home in the Eixample area of Barcelona, architects Serrat-Tort and interior designer Marta Castellano rose to the challenge and created a wonderful industrial style space full of rustic charm. 

The designers restored the original features of the building, including the impressive barrel-vaulted ceilings, fireplaces and Greek columns, breathing a new lease of life with white paint on the walls and a wood floor in a herringbone pattern throughout.  The furniture selection is simple but effective, a mix of new and vintage in a light colour palette of white, cream and dark neutrals.  We particularly like the deep window alcove seating area with its pile of inviting cushions and the dramatic cloth-bound suspension lights over the dining table, which add interest and draw your eyes up to the beautiful ceiling.  This is a great example of how to create a soft, romantic even, design scheme in an industrial style space.

Product Inspiration

Create a soft, romantic look in an industrial style by combining generously proportioned soft seating in neutral colours such as the Gentry sofa from Moroso and the Altay armchair from Coedition with the industrial-rustic style Zumitz low table from Alki.

Go for large, dramatic lights to make the most of a high ceiling.  The Link Chain suspension light from LZF, the Scraplight Sun suspension light from Graypants and the O Mi Kami OLED light from Blackbody would all work well.

For accessories with a industrial-rustic edge try the Butterfly coat rack from Ghidini 1961, the Smokestack fireplace from Frederik Roije and the Blockwork desk organiser from Lyon Beton.
