The home's casual-chic family room invites informal gatherings and boasts spectacular views of the Rocky Mountains.
Modern Loft Living Room
Nine windows that ensconce the loft provide amazing views of the former Stapleton International Airport, the historic air traffic control tower and the Rocky Mountains, a 30-minute drive from the neighborhood. “The loft allows people to experience that indoor/outdoor relationship that is so special here,” says Infinity Home Collection’s general manager, David Steinke.
A maple and iron staircase leads to the loft entry, marked by a driftwood sawhorse table and a trio of acrylic and graphite paintings on Yupo paper by artist Susan Helbig. “We liked the graphic feel and the contemporary feel of her work,” says interior designer Linda Woodrum.
The final furnishing chosen for the room, an armchair constructed from pieces of Brazilian Pinus wood, hand-glued and nailed in place, pops when paired with more traditional furnishings. “When we set that chair in that room it just started singing,” says interior designer Linda Woodrum. “Bringing in something unique, different and slightly unexpected is what makes a room come alive.”
Two 4-foot, dark wood console tables partner to create a platform for the flat-screen TV. “We had so much going on in the room that the console had to be discreet and disappear,” says interior designer Linda Woodrum.
Within steps of the second-floor bedrooms, the loft area is an ideal space to convene with guests. “The sectional is conducive to everyone sitting together. I think it’s psychological: It evokes family cuddling together,” says interior designer Linda Woodrum.
