Create an open floor plan for various seating vignettes and multi functional design options.

  • While this lobby is not shy on seating; it’s arrangement fits the urban scene with New York city in full view. The subtle color is contrasted by rich leather playing with the rug pattern. You can almost hear the nightlife through floor to ceiling windows!

With the city in full view behind sprawling high windows, you can almost hear the transportation and feel the nightlife. The open ‘urban’ floor plan with it’s many seating options options reminds you of an upper NY loft!

    Paula’s Design Tips

    • Combine an open floor plan with multiple seating options
    • If your playing with height, use tall vertical floor lamps to draw the eye upward
    • Accessorize an urban space with mirrors and oversized art of the surrounding city

    Lifestyle > Urban

    Urban interior design reflects diverse backgrounds and interests. Urban design, while also modern is about creating and combining open and multi-functional spaces. Typically featuring nontraditional design, the mixing of materials such as glass, concrete, and surfaces are used. But always, the look is polished and sophisticated!
