Working as an adjunct designer with retail sustainable design studio, Green Home Chicago, Jase Frederick did a re-design of this converted loft using mainly the client's existing furniture, art, and accessories. A few key pieces were added to the mix including a custom-designed built-in for media, books and collectibles, an energy-efficient light fixture over the dining table, and a new console table in the entryway.

This converted loft living/dining area was re-worked using mainly the client's existing furniture. The custom-designed built-in was added for media, books and collectibles, and an energy-efficient light fixture was installed over the dining table.

The built-in was custom-designed for the client to house media, books and collectibles. The translucent door panels are made of decorative acrylic from 3Form. Note the vertical grass cloth detail - grass cloth the same color as the walls was applied in vertical panels from floor to ceiling. Wood finishing strips were added to finish the edges. The effect draws the eye travel upward (something our client requested) and take in the height of the ceilings and overall verticality of the space simply by adding texture.
This small alcove in the loft's entry hall has enough room for a sleek console table and contemporary side chair. A soft blue blown-glass pendant fixture is centered on another of the floor-to-ceiling grass cloth wall detail. An enamel bowl on the table holds keys and other coming and going items.
