Think of this loft co-op in a former garter factory at 32 West 20th Street as one big, soft, colorful tote bag–the kind your favorite third grade art teacher would pack to the brim every day–there are pockets for stuff, sure–in this case a bedroom and a bath and a half–but really it’s a big, open space with room for floaty scarves, bright skeins of yarn, beads and baubles, paints and brushes. At 2,000 square feet there’s plenty to work with when it comes to carving out just the kind of space you need.
In the meantime, the full bath is really far from the bedroom, but the huge great room could easily accommodate additional chambers (and an alternate floor plan wisely advises the creation of another full bath). Otherwise, it’s a loft through and through, with high ceilings, original columns, walls of windows and acres of pale wood flooring, with custom additions like floor-to-ceiling closets and a washer/dryer.
You won’t even need that morning coffee when you’ve got this high-spirited kitchen with accents in the sunniest lemon and mint.
The home’s current bedroom is spacious enough for collections and art projects; lush textiles in crimson hues look right at home, but there’s room for the whole rainbow.
This 1912 loft building in the heart of the Flatiron District also offers basement storage–for every time you decide to spin the color wheel.
