Loft Living

Item details

Upon purchasing her Long Island City loft, this UN executive called Laurie Blumenfeld Design to create a high-functioning, aesthetically pleasing kitchen and dining area.

The design studio incorporated a lighting plan to illuminate the dark loft, boasting 12’ ceilings. The result is a renovated kitchen with custom built-in shelving, a light bridge over the island and an Eskayel mural to create an artistic, loft vibe. Fresh Danish Modern furnishings and custom designed light fixtures play into the sculptural and unique appeal of the raw space.

“I love working with clients to learn about their design dreams and ideal lifestyles. In turn, this information becomes the manifesto for our design. We plan, curate, and customize their spaces resulting in a cozy and chic home that functions beautifully for each individual client.” – Laurie Blumenfeld-Russo
Born and raised in Westport, CT, Laurie Blumenfeld-Russo was inspired to pursue a life in design after celebrating her 13th birthday on a family trip to India. This early experience ignited a life-long passion for travel, design, and collecting and eventually broadened her horizons to Asia, South America, the Middle East, Europe, Africa, and beyond.

Laurie spent the first part of her career in a creative, brand marketing role, where she led the special events department for Nickelodeon. With a strong desire to follow her passion for design, Laurie left the comfort of the corporate world and enrolled in Parsons’ highly coveted design program, where she obtained a degree in Interior Design. Laurie was immediately sought after for her global style and unique eye and launched her eponymous firm LBR | HOME in 2014, which is now known as Laurie Blumenfeld Design to encompass the firm’s expansion into commercial and hospitality spaces, as well as product design.

Laurie Blumenfeld Design’s projects range from New York City apartments and commercial office spaces to complete renovations throughout the Northeast and Washington DC. Laurie and her projects have been published in House Beautiful, CNBC, Lonny, Domino, Martha Stewart Living, Aspire Design and Home, Apartment Therapy, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and more.

Laurie lives in Brooklyn Heights with her husband Bob and their Australian shepherd Ava with a completely renovated rooftop oasis, which functions as their “at-home” vacation home for these travel lovers.
