13 “LOFT” LIVING originated in Paris when artists established studios in abandoned warehouses to accommodate the oversize paintings popular at the time. Modern loft environments idealize the characteristic features of their early counterparts with high ceilings, exposed beams, open spaces, and vintage flooring or brickwork. Soaring windows frame dramatic city skylines and interior spaces pack a powerful visual punch with their clean lines and minimalist approach to detail. Dura Supreme cabinetry coordinates perfectly within this design genre with sleek contemporary door styles and equally sleek interiors.
