Industrial Modern Rustic Loft Interior in Chicago

Modern rustic decor often melds with industrial home style. Combining rustic furniture and accents with industrial ideas results in an interesting contrast; where concrete backdrops and reclaimed metal intermingle with warm wood tones and natural rattan. Take a look at a loft that appears as though almost everything in it was a once lost and now newly found item, perhaps recovered from an abandoned industrial building. The loft designed by Serhii Seinov is located in Chicago. From this birdseye view the scheme appears almost soft despite the solid concrete floor. The huge sectional sofa is a light grey upholstered design in a sociable L-shaped arrangement. Peeping out from beneath the sofa in the rustic living room , an area rug lays at an interesting angle that invites you to come in and sit down, then leads you back out over to the dining suite. An eclectic coupling of tables and an old planter make an interesting centrepiece in the lounge. An industrial dining suite is made up of a distressed wooden trestle table with a flaking painted finish and a set of six matching stools. A rustic kitchen complete with exposed ducting forms a backdrop to the rustic dining room. Metal and wooden storage boxes populate the space beneath the rustic console.

The Barn – Rustic House, Gym and Garage

Whatever the attraction, the architectural barn style was the look that the homeowners were after when they decided to add a guesthouse to their 15-acre property on Tucker Ranch. The couple’s architect and friend, John Carney of Carney Logan Burke Architects in Jackson, equivocated – for a minute. “I remember they handed me photos of the real barns. I suggested maybe we didn’t want to settle on a form so quickly, but in this case it really was them saying ‘No, this is what we want'”. But because the barn shape “is very classic and traditional”, Carney says, “we knew we wanted to add an element of surprise in the design. That surprise took the form of a huge second-story gridded glass wall, which looks due north to the Tetons and the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort and has two lower hopper windows that open up to provide fresh air. “The whole thing is proportioned to look like a loft hay-loading space, as if it were big double doors you brought hay into,” says Carney. The 2400-square-foot new-build, finished this past summer, actually serves three purposes: besides needing a guest house for the family’s many visitors, the homeowners wanted a dedicated workout area for her (“I exercise outside whenever I can, but needed something with views to use in bad weather” she says.) and, for him, an expansive first-floor garage with a ceramic checkerboard tile floor. The building pays homage to 19th-century working barns: the exterior and interior walls, in fact, are built of old barnwood (from Montana Reclaimed Lumber), two-foot-square punched windows on the first floor mimic traditional barn windows, and the interior has a pitched ceiling supported by knee braces interspersed between trusses, a design that is both striking to look at and necessary to support the cedar shake roof during Wyoming’s heavy winter snows.

Unexpectable Beauty Inside Rustic House In Colorado

Located in Telluride’s historic district, the Walsh House offers the chance to own John Pawson’s first U.S. commission. The exterior pays homage to the area’s mining heritage with its metal roof, weathered timber siding, and fieldstone facade, while the interior is a prime example of the architect’s signature minimal style. The four bedroom structure combines concrete, marble, and a bright white pallet to offset the rugged mountain landscape, brought in through numerous windows and skylights. A second story, consisting of an open living area, expands out to a private deck, affording unspoiled views of Colorado’s San Juan Mountains.
