Seen & Noted: The Loft Amsterdam

As the name suggests, The Loft, Amsterdam, is a "periodically recurring conceptual pop-up store" in loft spaces filled with wonderful design-objects and furniture – new and old. Everything in the space is for sale and acts as the ultimate inspiration for those looking to create great spaces with a soul.

Their online magazine is wonderful inspiration for anyone considering loft living.

We have a deeply rooted love for natural materials – and a rather unsubtle aversion from nonrecycled plastic. We like our stuff to be either carved out of wood, cut from leather, blown into glass or drummed into steel. We love wool. And covet ceramics. These materials tell a lot about the love and attention invested in a product.
