We must applaud the taste which have been the owners of this eclectic loft in Philadelphia to meet all types of flea market finds, material rescued from trash and treasures family who did not want to break off and do combine seamlessly to your beautiful and spacious floor.
While there is who uses the adjective eclectic as something disparaging about décor, as if nobody has had concerned adhere to one style, in my opinion is a way to decorate as valid as any other, just that more complicated still because We must harmonize elements of many styles that it may prove to be incompatible at first instance.
No doubt Lance DeWalt and Quoc Nguyen, the lucky owners of the loft, have managed to do it with expertise, resulting in the warm and comfortable that follows all of the character and the history of the objects that decorate it, but also it helps the amplitude and the light from the large windows.
The main room is a large living room with a kitchen’s concept open (is a nod to my dream home and your House view) with precious dreams of dark wood and the rest of surfaces painted in white, including the ceiling beams and facilities, which are views.
In the lounge area We found a gorgeous Fuchsia color sofa, an alfomabra of geometric shapes and colors to match the sofa. Neutrality provide it steel and marble and lamp table stand of Achille Castiglioni Marble Arch. The eccentric touch brings it the Golden Vase and, above all, the hemispherical armchair that hangs from the ceiling.
The dining area It is another example of the reigning eclecticism in the House. Dominates the space a large black table surrounded by up to four types of different, from one of wooden chairs more traditional to other more modern as the transparent re-edition of the Chair Louis XV (the Louis Ghost by Philippe Starck) or a modern classic like the Panton Chair.
Around the table we find all types of furniture, as a large Hutch with display cabinets wood, another stainless steel sideboard, a strange installation of necks of shirt… not to mention the light golden chandelier hanging over the table.
However, my favorite area is the kitchen, where the Golden lamps and wrought iron and wooden stools contrast with pristine and shiny white kitchen furniture, which might well have been part of a minimalist house if it weren’t for deer head Golden on the top.
The bedroom It is separated from the living room by a wooden partition not arriving to the ceiling, so light filters through the top, illuminating a stay that otherwise would be completely dark. I like the recycled sliding door that gives access to the room, and the small reading corner created next to it.
Once inside the bedroom, thanks be ample space and not heavily loaded, where we simply find a dresser, an area for hanging clothes, a great vintage mirror, a single bed and a small mesita-tocador next to it. Again turns to mix modern style of bed and Chair Eames DSR with the pickled nightstand, mirror or the dresser in front of it.
In short, East eclectic Philadelphia loft It is a magnificent example of how decorate combining objects and furniture of different styles. A thin line separates a striking but balanced decoration which overwhelm just enter by the door, so if you want to do something at home, take you with calm and moderation a histrionic.
