Loft With Organic Materials
Lamps around the periphery of this space add a warm glow.
Lau took on the task of warming up this 4,000-square-foot West Chelsea loft — formerly an art gallery. An earlier conversion had created two bedrooms, a kitchen, and an office, but the homeowner wanted the remaining raw space to feel more comfortable and intimate. Lau used exposed brick with natural hemp and wool rugs throughout, inviting furniture, and art displays.
