ID&A Awards 2014: Further Shortlist Success for Marie Burgos Design

design et al are pleased to announce that Marie Burgos Design have achieved further shortlist success with the Industrial Antiquarian Loft in the Living Space – North & South America category in the International Design & Architecture Awards 2014.


The design of a space is rooted in the story behind the homeowner’s life. It is created out of their passions and personality and this Brooklyn pad is no exception. The homeowner has a love for unusual finds, industrial design and artwork. From this direction, Marie Burgos generated a space that layers vintage items, industrial chic metals, intriguing antiquities and controversial artwork.


The living room is anchored by a vintage Adrian Pearsall sofa and two Bantam armchairs with strong lines. All of the pieces are upholstered in a plum boucle fabric which provides a very distinct and classic look. Covering the hardwood floor is an over-dyed Anatolian vintage rug and two ikat sari floor poufs for extra cushion. The sleek and modern kitchen becomes the perfect canvas to showcase work by the famous United Kingdom graffiti artist, Banksy.


The bedroom feels extra cosy with a custom made window sofa, two vintage over-dyed Anatolian rugs sprawled over the floor and a stack of floor pillows. Custom black and midnight blue roller shades were installed for privacy and the stunning ram heads above the bed were commissioned by artist Jason Borders. The artist creates his pieces with a dremel and never plans the design; instead he lets his creativity flow freely, generating incredibly engaging visuals with beautiful lines.


 The artwork and antiquities used in the design were carefully researched and sought out. They represent the client in every way and were crucial to the space.

The space is perfect representation of the client. It is unusual, intriguing, sophisticated and comfortable.
