#3 - Michael and Mindy’s Urban Modern

Name: Michael and Mindy
Location: Chicago, IL
Size & Type: 608 sq ft - 1 bedroom heavy timber loft in a 1920's shoe factory, rented

Favorite resource: Craigslist, DWR, Room and Board, and our degrees in Architecture


Our design approach combines simple clean lines with classic mid century modern pieces. The loft is a work in progress and we continue to unveil our true style piece by piece. As obsessive organizers, we have achieved our aesthetic by eliminating unsightly clutter.

Pitch Cont'd:

We took advantage of the extra space in our bedroom closet to stash away two computers, two printers, a router, scanner and supplies. The result is a relaxing, minimalist bedroom which doubles as an office and keeps our work behind closed doors. Accents of bold paint make a dramatic impact on our rental space.

Your favorite element:

50th Anniversary Eames Lounge Chair custom
upholstered in Edelman's Royal Hide Leather in "Polar Bear"
