This household resides in Fox Point, Wisconsin (just north of Milwaukee) and although the couple had originally planned to move into an old warehouse, this Mid-Century home stole their hearts with, get this — a chair loft. What's a chair loft? Well you'll just have to click through to find out and don't say we didn't warn you, because you'll totally want one too!

Now having lived for awhile up in Milwaukee, we always wondered where all the good Mid-Century finds were hiding... and now we know! Kate Kramer, Chris Poehlmann and their daughter take up residence in this walk through furniture and lighting classics from years gone by. Their space is light, bright and open and best of all, comes complete with a lofted show-space for some of their chair obsession.

Chris is a lighting and furniture designer, so his home would naturally be filled with inspirational shapes and classic pieces that have molded design and style choices until this point. Their home was originally built as a 3 bedroom shelter back in 1958. Another living area was added in 1960 rounding things off at 2,600 square feet. Did we mention there's a sunken living room with Hibatchi grill?

It's a great space and we really hope you have time to take the full tour over at The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and read up on all the special details and makings of this incredible space.
