DOWNTOWN LA LOFT
When a busy studio exec purchased this spacious but bland downtown LA penthouse, he asked Los Angeles interior designer Kari Whitman to help convert it into a space “that felt very now.” He also wanted it designed around entertaining and showcasing his passions which include films, vinyl records and biking. To take full advantage of the city views from this spacious loft, luxury interior designer Kari Whitman positioned a dining room table from Vladimir Kagan, offset with with Charles Hollis Jones chairs, directly in front of the floor-to-ceiling windows. A custom-designed chandelier featuring 96 light bulbs was designed by Whitman and hangs over the table for some added drama.
High-end interior designer Kari Whitman created a space for her client that is interesting and reflects his eccentric, rock ‘n’ roll vibe. The furnishings are kept to a minimum to make for a space that is visually uncluttered. It’s a little arty, a little eccentric, and a little rock ‘n’ roll, just like Whitman’s client and his new downtown LA loft.
