With its mix of modern and classic styles and contrasting colours the Great Jones Loft ($NFS) is the picture of elegance. It uses bold styles like the exposed brick feature wall to provide and effective contrast to the dark metal and oak furniture. The industrial style is balanced with a Carrara marble table for some added refinement. The open interior and blend of modern and classic styles are carried into the rest of the rooms from the kitchen to bathroom and bedroom.One of the items that really caught my eye was the kitchen island. It is made from iron and natural wood. It has cabinets on the sink side, open shelves on the back, with additional seating for six. The island looks to be a custom build by a company called MARCH if you're interested in obtaining a quote.
