When did this style of interior as a loft, and tips on decorating your kitchen in this style.
The origin of the style loft
Loft style interior design, appeared in the forties of the twentieth century in new York. It was then that former industrial premises began to be converted into offices, galleries and housing.
While for many Americans it was one of the few available opportunities to become the owner of his property. But that idea very quickly gained enormous popularity.
More fashionable artists are beginning to open in the lofts of their studios and galleries. Gradually the whole Bohemian crowd flows into lofts, aristocratic life in new York is concentrated here.
Gradually, the lofts have become a favorite accommodation already not young artists, financiers and attorneys. The industrial atmosphere is now created by designers in ordinary housing, not only in the former factories.
Today, the unique industrial flavor can give any room, including the kitchen. As for the post-Soviet space, the loft style has started to gain popularity only a few years ago.
The hallmark of loft style is a combination of old materials (such as wood floor, concrete and bare brick) and modern textures (chrome, glass and stainless steel).
A brick wall would be ideal to contrast with ultra-modern furnishings in the style of hi-tech. But if you add in a kitchen of some rare item, like a squat old fridge with a convex door, the stunning effect will be provided.
