All of these residential interiors are located far from the Midwest in Istanbul, but we're blogging them because 1) they're designed by one of our favorite new furniture manufacturers, Autoban, and 2) they illustrate a lot of the concepts we've been blogging lately. Click below to check out the innovative use of subway tile, wood and white dining rooms, and even an anti-closet:
The glossy black floors in this project (the Ayaspasa House) are set off by the subway tile along one wall. We love this look, especially combined with the glint of metal from the chairs.
The weight of this enormous Chesterfield sofa is balanced by the light and airy wire furniture throughout the rest of the room.
We love the way the open closet looks in this biker's loft. Seems like they took it one step further, creating an open garage for the motorcycle. :)
The leaning bookcases in this apartment draw attention to the high ceilings, and the corner neon light looks like an art installation.
The mirrored subway tile and long wood dining table in this space are right on. We also love the combination of medium and light woods.
In this photo from Autoban's Bistro 33 project, we noticed the way wood paneling is used on a vertical slant against subway tile on the far wall.
