The polished design of this sophisticated SoHo loft comes from our new favorite firm SPI Design. Based in LA, Sarah Shetter and Alison Palevsky founded SPI Design back in 2004 in an attempt to bring modern luxury in a livable way to urban dwellers. We love the clean lines mixed with quirky, comical touches. In this loft they have intentionally maintained the original industrial elements inherent in the space while also creating a warm, cozy, chic environment.
Our favorite details: the nicely curated photography on display, the color coded book shelf, the photo gallery hung above the sideboard in the dining/living room and the state-of-the art kitchen that is made from sustainable materials such as PaperStone counter-tops, FSC-certified cabinet base panels, and FSC-certified birch veneer cabinet fronts. And how great is the touch of regency-glamour in the bedroom? We love the mirrored side tables topped off with mercury glass lamps. The black and silver is perfectly playful, as is the rest of the space. Enjoy! For more information on this adorable design duo, visit their lovely website here.

Photographer Anita Calero migrated to West Chelsea long before the current stampede of millionaires. Back in the 1990s, she rented a 2,000-square-foot loft in an artists’ condominium, which she then bought and began to reconfigure. Calero knocked wide doorways into several rooms, including the new eat-in kitchen with its major appliances carefully hidden from the adjacent spaces. The dining table and chairs are lightly restored Jean Prouvé “standard chairs,” with a faux-coral chandelier above (Calero frequents furniture dealers and flea markets). Of course, this kind of archaeology isn’t possible in the ultra-luxury apartments rising around Calero’s building. We especially love how she has embraced the older elements of the space.
