Erie Loft rustic-kitchen

Erie Loft

After years of ignoring its original warehouse aesthetic, due to a developer’s ‘apartmentizing’ of the building, this 2,400 square foot, two-story loft has been rehabilitated to show off its industrial roots. Layers of paint and drywall have been removed revealing the original timber beams and masonry walls while accommodating two bedrooms, master suite, and a lofty, open living space at the ground floor. We wanted to avoid the lifeless feeling usually associated with industrial lofts by giving the space a warm but rustic aesthetic that we think best represented the original loft building.

Bench drawer? - Very cool kitchen - love the clerestory window - please tell me how the bench functions? Is that one big long drawer? How is it constructed so it opens smoothly??

Thanks, Jane. The clerestory window is stainless steel and was salvaged from and old building. The bench is just a pop-up door with storage, not a drawer.

This shows adding a wood wall into another room...I know it is too dark wood for your home and for your taste but it is a great example of how a simple wall blends beautifully into your kitchen as an accent wall. I could do easily into in that small of a space behind the settee.
