THE BIRTH OF LOFT LIVING
In the early 1960s a new style trend began in the US where old warehouses were turned into living spaces. Solid wood furniture was mixed with steel, glass and fabric to decorate large open-plan living and work spaces for a young generation wishing to manifest their opinion of a more sophisticated urban society.
The Loft style seen around the world today, is a result of an inherited respect for classic furniture craftsmanship blended with the need for functionality and toughness known from industrial environments. Danish designer Steven Tynan fusions the toughness of Loft style with Danish furniture craftsmanship towards an ambition of simplicity and functionality.

The city of Odense is located right in the center of The Kingdom of Denmark where it was founded more than a thousand years ago. In the very beginning of the 19th century, in the city’s most poor and unprosperous neighborhood, Hans Christian Andersen was born… The son of a shoemaker who lost his father at age 11, was later described by historians as an unrestrainable daydreamer and is recognized today, as one of the greatest fairy-tale authors of all time.
Danish Loft Design reached the homes and restaurants of some 150,000 Western expatriates in Thailand, from city apartments, to restaurants, to holiday homes in the mountains and beach towns of the country.

The Port of Skagen is Denmark’s main fishing port. Thanks to its seascapes, fishermen and evening light, towards the end of the 19th century it became popular with a group of impressionist artists now known as the Skagen Painters.
