Picture it: a top-floor loft with floor-to-ceiling windows, exposed beams, industrial accents sprinkled throughout, perhaps even an exposed brick wall and modern, stylish furniture that is still comfortable enough to actually use. This is the urban loft style dream.
We can’t help you acquire the loft, but we can help you build a top-floor lifestyle space with our newly arrived pieces for November. This month we love everything about the urban loft look: clean lines, wood and dark metal accents, a contrasting color palette, a mix of textures and an effortless blend of mid-century modern and contemporary styles.
Explore Urban Loft Style
There’s nothing like a contemporary mix of textures to draw the eye and add layers of style to a space. That is precisely the reason we love the A.R.T. Furniture Cityscapes queen bedroom set.
A particularly stylish point of the collection? The bold dresser. We’ve talked before about how to update a piece with new hardware. This dresser does just that with square brass pulls on the front of each of the nine English dovetail drawers. The matching nightstand also features the same hardware, adding a contemporary industrial flair to both pieces.
The gorgeous sleigh bed is all modern form: tapered feet, exposed wooden rails, clean and boxy form and best of all, a tufted upholstered headboard that contrasts beautifully with the hand-brushed stone finish of the wood frame.

Cool, urban loft style does not have to come at the expense of comfort. It is 100% possible to have a sleek, contemporary living room that is still easy to relax in. For those ready to go all in on Instagram-worthy sofas, we have two options from Palliser: the Edie and the Lauren. The Edie is a chic sofa that looks like it came straight out of your favorite home décor catalog. Slim straight legs, track arms, a tight yet plush back and cylindrical pillows all combine to make this an elegant addition to a loft-style living room. The soft gray upholstery will add a subtle splash of color that will contrast beautifully with industrial or rustic accents. For a slightly different take on contemporary chic style, we turn to the Lauren sofa. It also features clean lines and track arms but has dark tapered feet and nail head trim for a built-in contrast to the fresh white upholstery. Either sofa will serve as an elegant focal point in an urban loft living room.
For those who prefer a moodier and more casual sofa, look no further than the Catnapper Sedona sofa. The dark gray suede upholstery will provide the industrial element needed in an urban loft. Best of all, the power reclining feature allows you to lay flat and adjust the headrests. It’s tough work being stylish, so why not relax? Simply pair this sofa with mid-century modern or contemporary occasional pieces and accessories to bring it back to the urban loft style.
Looking for accessories to add to your already-styled living room? The Bristow accent lamp from Uttermost is one of the most intriguing lamps we carry. Crafted of aged iron pipes and finished in a rusty bronze patina, the iron mesh shade houses an antique-style bulb. There is no better industrial accessory to add to an urban loft space.
For extra seating or as an accent to a foyer, the Waylon bench from Uttermost is just at home in an art gallery as your own living space. Mid-century modern style receives a contemporary update with the squared off birch frame and dark gray tufted seat.
Complete the theme of contrasting textures with a dining set that perfectly balances rustic wood and elegant neutral upholstery. The refectory-style table exemplifies urban loft style with the contrast between the distressed light-toned wood and metal trim running around the edge. Two self-storing leaves means you’ll have ample room to entertain everyone who may drop by for dinner. The six dining chairs add even more elegant style to the collection. Four of the six side chairs showcase deeply curved backs in pine with plush seats in neutral upholstery. The other two side chairs are fully padded and upholstered and will nicely bookend the head and foot of the table.
