When fascinating patterns and colors collide, inspiration is born. With extensive experience in the design field, well-known designer Karim Rashid strikes again. His bold works are once again showcased in this colorful apartment in New York City. Three spacious rooms located at the crossroads of Chelsea and the West Village’s meatpacking district were designed and furnished by the designer, composing an extravagant interior design focusing on matching patterns, textures and colors. Spreading over almost 2,000 square feet, the loft gathers expressive details under the 12? ceilings. Modern furniture part of Karim’s portfolio adorned the white rooms, creating a unique display of comfortable spaces and demanding undivided attention. Glossy floors in the kitchen reflect natural light filtered through tall windows and patterned space separators alongside a pink rug define the vivacious living space. Already rented, the fascinating space seen on Afflante remains as an inspiration source for those who love vivid colors and bold patterns.
