My clients are modernists, the reason for their purchase of this modern loft. However, they inherited this beautiful French style piano from her mother. They wanted to keep it for sentimental reasons, but didn’t want to put it in their living room with their modern furniture. The loft has this mezzanine, an open space overlooking the living room. I thought it would be a perfect place for the piano as one could play and the music would be overheard in the living room below. The carpet was selected with a curved pattern mimicking the lines of the piano leg.
She also has a treadmill, which is used daily. She didn’t want it in her bedroom, spoiling the decor in there, nor wanting the noise to wake up a sleeping husband. I put it in the mezzanine space, covered by the custom glass screen. The screen hides the machine, but better yet, she can see through it when working out. So, she is not isolated.
