Loft and New York City are synonymous. Former industrial spaces that have been converted to residences or new construction, New York City lofts are architectural blank slates for New York interior designers and owners to create their own unique space. From cutting edge contemporary to industrial farmhouse designs, from modern to classic, furniture and décor can transform a loft. Open space living is at its best in New York City lofts. Open, airy, filled with architectural details, these eight city lofts are all gorgeous examples of loft living.
Two of our favorite features of a NYC loft are the big windows and architectural details in the ceiling. This renovated loft has glass walls to divide the space and a simple color palette.

A classic loft feature is an exposed brick wall. We love the contrast of the brick in an otherwise polished, contemporary space.

This renovated double height loft with a bedroom upstairs hidden by bookshelves should inspire quite a few interior design ideas. Floating stairs make an interesting architectural detail.

Love the original dark wood, beamed ceiling in this Soho loft. Gorgeous, huge arched windows allow a lot of natural light.

Big walls allow for big art work in lofts. One quirk of loft living is having to work around structural elements like support columns.

Exposed brick and original wood beams and supports combined with dark wood floors give this space an industrial, but warm feeling.

Huge windows give a lot of natural light in this predominately white loft space. High ceilings add to the airy feeling.

High ceilings in lofts mean tons of vertical storage space, a great kitchen design idea. Love the all white kitchen in this space.
City loft living may not be for everyone, but these lofts have a lot of great ideas for decorating open living spaces in your home.
