Industrial Philadelphia Penthouse

By on 28-01-2012 in Inspired By, Interior Design

Groundswell Design Group has transformed this bare and uninspired penthouse into a contemporary and dramatic space by mixing cool, clean interiors and reclaimed pieces. This living work space has high ceilings, an abundance of natural lighting and enjoys enviable views of the Philadelphia skyline. The fusion between the raw, industrial style materials and stylish BoConcept design furniture gives this modern home a sophisticated edge. Rustic feature walls gives the space a natural warmth and visual appeal, whilst the furnishings add a refined and clean look. The colour scheme strikes the perfect balance between warm and cool tones thanks to the combination of both red and grey throughout the space. If you’re thinking about trying this look out in your home, think minimal and no-nonsense furniture with strong, clean lines. Mix new pieces with reclaimed ones, and make sure to choose solid upholstery in natural textures and neutral colours. We’ve found plenty of functional and contemporary pieces from BoConcept that fit perfectly with the decor in this apartment.

The living room embraces a largely cool colour palette, with hints of rust red and a warm brown tones. In the centre of the room we’ve spotted our Slate Rug, which encompasses a variety of grey tones in the design. A neutral rug forms a solid foundation for when you want to layer on rich textures, patterns or colours. Think of it as the canvas for the rest of your room. To break up the cool grey colour, the interior designer has opted for the Lugo Coffee Tables, one with a walnut veneer tabletop and the other with a glass tabletop. The stylish Veneto Armchair in black Rio leather provides a stark contrast to the rest of the room.

The study and additional living room feature grand timber walls, which gives each space a rustic appeal. To balance out the rugged and heavy look of the walls, the designer has added in a few contemporary elements to subdue the rustic feel, including the Short Story Print in the study. The additional living room features the Nomi Chair, the Adria Coffee Table in clear glass, and the Seca Sofa Bed. As this space is a smaller that the central area of the apartment, they’ve used practical and functional furniture to enhance the size of the room, including a glass coffee table which takes up less visual space, and a sofa that converts into a double bed for overnight guests.

The design of the bedroom introduces deeper colour tones to add a sense of drama and intimacy to the space. We’ve spotted our Leather Look and Walnut Veneer Bed in this room, paired up with a reconstructed timber bedhead that aligns well to the rest of the apartment’s aesthetics. On each side of the bed you’ll find our Walnut Veneer Bedside Tables, which ties in well with the warm wooden floorboards and re-purposed timber furnishings. The soft texture of the popular Cato Rug in light grey provides a cozy sense of style and comfort to the hard wood flooring, perfect for those cold winter evenings!
