When it came time to renovate the Great Jones loft in New York City, designer Matt Bear mined our inventory of vintage glass and unique architectural elements to uncover several one-of-a-kind pieces.
As the founder of Union Studio, based in Berkeley, California, Matt’s designs are driven by the materials he uses. Every piece is an expression of his strong commitment to craft. In the case of Great Jones, he blended 20th century creative accents and a modern, minimalist style with industrial features reminiscent of the building’s 1903 NoHo factory past.
For the kitchen, Matt created a table from a slab of carrera marble and a cast iron table base that he sourced from our inventory. The stunning table provides enough room for big meals, as well as space for homework and business meetings.
In addition, Matt installed two of our large, black vintage industrial lights above the kitchen island.
This gorgeous shower stall was created with industrial wire glass, one of our most popular architectural elements. The inlaid wire—which is appealing to the eye—adds shatterproof durability in addition to style.
Matt’s clients were thrilled with the renovation, noting, “Matt easily crosses the divide between architect and master craftsman, something we’ve found to be unique and very valuable.”
