Name: Andres & Adam
Location: Toronto, Ontario, Canada -- Loft Conversion of old Irwin Toy Factory in Liberty Village
We fell in love with this loft in a converted century old Toy Factory about 1.5 years ago and were fortunate enough to purchase the property. We immediately fell for the tall ceiling height, exposed fir beam ceilings, and exposed industrial space and quickly set out to making it our dream home. We have been avid collectors of mid-century modern furniture, lighting, and accessories for the last 15 years and after years of renting, we felt that we finally found a proper stage for some of our most prized pieces.
We love the immediate warmth of our loft due to the dark oak floors and exposed industrial surfaces, the perfect foil for our modern furnishings. We love the contrast of the angular, minimal pieces (like the couches) and the feminine, curvaceous quality of our mid-century modern items.
The great room is a bright, light filled and open space and the biggest challenge was placing our pieces to distinguish its specific functions (kitchen, living, & dining). I think that we have done that quite effectively!
Although we believe that our loft is always a work in progress, we have now created a place that we always look forward to coming home to. We love every minute we spend in our new (old) home!
Thanks, Andres & Adam!
