Chic, Contemporary Apartment

Designer Tara Benet uses a mix of contemporary and antique furnishings to design a cool New York City loft.

Neutral Living Space

Benet creates a fresh open space that is rich in antiques and collectibles. A large Oushak vintage rug in soft blues anchors the mix of pieces, while two shades of blue area used on the walls to create depth.

Airy, Bright Dining

A sleek white pedestal dining table makes a bold, contemporary statement. Armless chairs in natural tones bring an earthy quality to the modern style of the room.

Clean and Contemporary

Flat-fronted light gray cabinets are combined with stainless steel pulls for a streamlined kitchen design. Blue-gray subway tiles add a reflective quality and light to the room.

Casual Modern

To add texture and warmth to the contemporary space, Benet brings in a shag area rug, a wooden end table and some fun posters.
