Warehouse Home Issue Five, Published November 2016
"There is a growing trend towards urbanisation and, in response, planning laws are being relaxed to accommodate more conversions from commercial and industrial to residential use. Since launching Warehouse Home in 2014, we have tracked a sharp rise in the popularity of loft living. Our global readership confirms that this is an ever more popular aesthetic. So, we are excited to reveal in this fifth issue of Warehouse Home magazine, the debut Warehouse Home coffee table book. Featuring the most inspirational homes around the world, in former factories, textile mills, spice warehouses and pumping stations, it celebrates authentic industrial features and exceptional architecture and design. The unique characteristics of industrial conversions are complemented by luxurious fabrics like velvet and leather (pages 14-15) and metal furniture and accessories. In this issue, we celebrate both patinated (page 10) and polished designs. And, inspired by these, we’re launching two exciting new design collaborations; our first lighting collection, handcrafted in solid brass by Bare Bones Lighting, and a captivating wallpaper based on oxidised metal by 17 Patterns. Both can be admired in situ in a stunning scheme styled in a London factory conversion (pages 20-21). And they are available exclusively from mywarehousehome.com/shop. Whether you live in an industrial residence or, like so many of our readers, you simply love the look, there is a magazine, an e-shop and now a book providing the essential inspiration for channelling that distinctive aesthetic. If you need specific recommendations, please contact our in-house design team. And don’t forget to join the conversation on social media by following @mywarehousehome and by using #WarehouseHomeIssueFive. I hope you enjoy the latest issue!"
