Metro Loft Furniture has taken its inspiration from two things. Firstly, I’m a loft converter in Manchester, so I often must order furniture that was designed specifically for loft living or use. Secondly, I’m often considered a “Metrosexual” man because of the fashion that I like to stay in tune with. If you live in Manchester, you would know how it can be at times. As much as I love Manchester, if you are in tune with your feminine sign or you are aware about fashion, you are considered less of a man. It is a hard truth, but its truer because of the industry I am in. Builders are generally rougher than men in other industries, so at times it can seem as if you have a target painted on your back if you do not act like the “man” they perceive you to be. Having said that, they are good people and most of this perception comes from the environment that they have been raised in, rather than the true feelings of the area itself.
I really love some of the furniture that has been designed purely for loft living. I consider loft furniture to be a compact – or mini – version of normal furniture you would find in a home. The beds are always smaller, the desks are always shorter, and the lights always hand lower. It’s like you are designing a room for a real-life dollhouse. That means the furniture creators and especially the carpenters who are specialised in creating bespoke furniture design for lofts have a lot more creative license in their designs.
The colours are always different, the artwork and decal are always innovative and the whole style of the loft turns from what could be considered an artistic mess into an artisan’s dream. I mainly work with loft conversion companies just because I enjoy designing the lofts so much. So in this blog, we are going to discuss the various types of loft furniture you would come across if you decide to convert your loft!
