A mix of seating creates an eclectic look in the living space. No lounge is complete without a spacious armchair and footstool and this generous design, in leather and oak, lends some masculine style. A statement sofa provides crash-out space, but looks anything but trad thanks to its unusual, pillowy shape. The rocker creates a clean, minimal silhouette to prevent the area loo...More

Clever zoning and a mix of materials and colours help this basement space feel welcoming. Textural brick walls add character and to balance their industrial feel, the floor is a classic oak herringbone. The rug pulls all the surfaces together, looking both elegant and urban, thanks to its almost-camouflage pattern. There is an NYC cityscape on the wall, bringing the urban lands...More

To work the industrial loft look, this basement space has brick rather than plastered walls. One wall features exposed bricks, alive with the red tones we associate with British bricks and mortar homes, but also looking distinctly New York loft in style. The remaining walls are painted white, to maximise light levels. Black accents are peppered throughout against this gritty ba...More

A table is useful in any apartment, for dining or gathering round for a drink, cards or a board game. This simple, graphic design is made from the same grey oak as the desk and both pieces boast interesting, angled legs, for a chic, harmonious feel at this end of the space. The table’s circular shape is super sociable — just pull up another chair or chunky wooden stool — and it...More

The tall metal and wood shelving provides additional storage and space for display, to personalise the corner. Its industrial feel is echoed in the desk lamp which boasts a concrete base conta...More

The space around the stairs is dedicated to fun, but contains lots of sexy black to marry with the overall scheme and keep this corner feeling grown-up. A basketball hoop and punch-bag look smart in black leather, matching the room’s other dark notes while providing a focus for play. A small fridge will keep beer, wine and nibbles cool, but its iconic design and dark colour ens...More

Get the entrance right and the space flowing off it will look tidy and ordered. This neat, well-equipped entrance contains lots of inspired storage, including a simple bench in the oak and dark metal found throughout the space. This keeps shoes tidy and is somewhere to perch when putting them on. The hanging frame provides versatile, adjustable coat storage while the magnetic t...More
