Daniel Shapiro: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania industrial-bedroom

Daniel Shapiro: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

An ideal solution to his dilemma of separating the sleeping area from the rest of the loft, Daniel and Karen looked to IKEA shelving in lieu of a solid wall. As Shapiro explains, “[They] are very functional in the sense that they both divide the space and serve as bookshelves.” With a total living space at around 1,000 square feet, clever storage integration is a welcome concept.

The upholstered headboard mirrors the quality of the sofa, and continues the notion of warmth that Shapiro was after. The custom pillows are made from vintage Vietnamese natural indigo, which along side the quilt offer a refreshing dose of color to the bedroom.
