Spice Warehouse Tribeca Loft Living Room Industrial Living Room, New York

Established in 1895 as a warehouse for the spice trade, 481 Washington was built to last. With its 25-inch-thick base and enchanting Beaux Arts facade, this regal structure later housed a thriving Hudson Square printing company. After an impeccable renovation, the magnificent loft building’s original arched windows and exquisite cornice remain a testament to the grandeur of days past. Perfectly anchored between Soho and Tribeca, Spice Warehouse has been converted into 12 spacious full-floor lofts that seamlessly fuse old-world character with modern convenience.

Steps from the Hudson River, Spice Warehouse is within walking distance of renowned restaurants, famed art galleries, specialty shops and boutiques. With its golden sunsets and outstanding facilities, this is the ideal destination for those seeking the tranquil pleasures of the Hudson River waterfront.

Expansive private floor residences were designed to be both versatile and functional, each with 3- to 4-bedrooms, 3 full baths, and a home office. Several residences enjoy dramatic Hudson River views.

This open space has been designed to accommodate a perfect Tribeca city lifestyle for entertaining, relaxing and working.

This living room design reflects a tailored “old-world” look, respecting the original features of the Spice Warehouse. With its high ceilings, arched windows, original brick wall and iron columns, this space is a testament of ancient time and old world elegance.

The design choices are a combination of neutral, modern finishes such as the Oak natural matte finish floors and white walls, white shaker style kitchen cabinets, combined with a lot of texture found in the brick wall, the iron columns and the various fabrics and furniture pieces finishes used throughout the space and highlighted by a beautiful natural light brought in through a wall of arched windows.

The layout is open and flowing to keep the feel of grandeur of the space so each piece and design finish can be admired individually.

As soon as you enter, a comfortable Eames lounge chair invites you in, giving her back to a solid brick wall adorned by the “cappuccino” art photography piece by Francis Augustine and surrounded by flowing linen taupe window drapes and a shiny cowhide rug.

The cream linen sectional sofa takes center stage, with its sea of textures pillows, giving it character, comfort and uniqueness. The living room combines modern lines such as the Hans Wegner Shell chairs in walnut and black fabric with rustic elements such as this one of a kind Indonesian antique coffee table, giant iron antique wall clock and hand made jute rug which set the old world tone for an exceptional interior.

While I am not sure where the designer located these specific columns, often a great resource is your local salvage store or junk yard. They often carry pieces like this for sale, that is where I would suggest starting your search. Hope this helps! Happy decorating!

Hello susiebarnhill, lyseestar

These coffee tables are custom made usually using antique doors or windows as a top insert .

Please let us know if you are looking for a similar piece as we currently have a couple of them in stock but they are rare finds.

Many Thanks

This space is an ancient Spice warehouse. The columns are original iron columns which were refinished and repainted with a metal paint.

The coffee table looks like an old Indian daybed table. We carry them and have seen them at other shops as well. Hope that helps you find one!

Try searching for an architectural store. We carry columns and occasionally see them at other shops.

Beams - Are those the support beams of the house?

They are real structural beams which were in place when the building was a spice warehouse. It has been transformed in beautiful residential lofts. We kept some original features as a reminder of the old spice warehouse it was, such as these iron columns which we have refinished or brick walls in some areas. The beams have actually been redone for safety but they are reclaim wood.

Kind Regards,

Marie
