Artsy Loft In Brooklyn

Tze Chun is the founder of the online art gallery, Uprise Art. With the tagline for the next generation of collectors, Chun’s vision has been one of making art accessible for those who want to bring art home and into their workplace. It’s no wonder that this gallerist, who is changing the landscape of collecting by introducing works online, worked with another online platform to design her Brooklyn loft. Chun reached out to Casey DeBois of the New York startup, Homepolish, to design a space for her and her husband that was a perfect reflection of their aesthetic.

For Chun, she wanted a space that reflected her cultural roots and she and her husband Geoff’s love of throwback style. The design concept began with her familial roots – a desire for a mix of 1960s Hong Kong and Singapore style. In addition, the couple’s love of vintage served as inspiration for the furniture brought into the space.

With an open plan loft, the design had to also focus on the practical – making room for both public and private living areas. With no closets in the entire interior, storage became necessary for each and every space, from the office nook to the bedroom.

With all of the inspirational elements that were brought into the design, there was one more – the beautiful bones of the loft. Featuring original red brick and unique details, like paved over windows, the space feels quintessentially Brooklyn, with a cool industrial feel.
