Steal This Look: Library Loft in Barcelona

Issue 85 · Travels with an Editor: Barcelona · August 16, 2013

Located in a former carpet warehouse built more than a century ago, this light-flooded loft in Barcelona features a library corner with steel shelves, banker's chairs, and a vintage telephone. For sourcing ideas, read on (bonus points for anyone who can clue us in to the exact match for the cone pendant light).

Heath Ceramics Multi-Stem Vase

Restoration Hardware Metal Bookshelves, Remodelista

Above: A trio of simple Vintage Industrial Bookcases from Restoration Hardware would create a similar shelving unit ($995 each); alternatively, the 108-inch-wide French Library Shelving unit is $2,795.

Office Style Dining Table, Remodelista

Above: The Eames Rectangular Table with laminate top and segmented base is $1,349 at Y Living.

Heath Ceramics Vase in Olive Green, Remodelista

Above: For a similar vase, consider the Heath Cearmics' Multi-Stem Vase for $89 at Didrik's.

Restoration Hardware Banker's Chair, Remodelista

Above: The 1940s Banker's Chair in antiqued black is $495 at Restoration Hardware. Traditional solid oak Banker's Guest Chairs (without casters) are available for $753 each from 33Office.

Y Lighting Cone Pendant Light

Above: It's not a perfect match, but Tom Dixon's Large Cone Pendant Light ($1,285 at Y Lighting) is a good option. Can any of our genius Remodelista readers provide an exact match for the cone pendant light used in the Barcelona library loft?

Crosley Old Fashioned Phone, Remodelista
