For the living room, the most special room in the house, we decided to locate a small space in form of an office, placed under one of the large windows that provides large doses of light to the entire room. The desk, custom-designed by our team, is made of stained oak veneer with drawer units and wheels.
For the interior design and decoration of this living area we decided to use wood and warm-coloured fabrics for the furniture and textiles, together with some decorative design elements, such as paintings and even a leather armchair, the Butterfly Chair model, an undisputed icon of contemporary design.
The sofa is a bespoke design by Molins, upholstered with Carlucci fabric in a sand tone, which contrasts with the chosen fabric for the decorative cushions, which match the poufs, which is Andrew Martin.
This interior design project consists of the total renovation of a second-hand loft flat in Barcelona.
At the beginning, this flat located in the Poblenou area of Barcelona, had a distribution that was not very functional and efficient. We are talking about a totally traditional architectural design, with differentiated spaces separated by rooms.
The main objective for this loft-style design house was to make use of dead spaces. In other words, we wanted to gain space in the house by eliminating unnecessary partitions and walls.
Therefore, at Molins Design we worked to create a spacious loft with all the rooms open and integrated into a single space. In this way, the 4 areas of the flat (living room, dining room, kitchen and office) make the most of the available space and natural light.
In order to give a masculine and differential touch to this loft-style flat, we wanted to play with the elements of the well-known “Meccano” toys. Therefore, we used them as parts of constructive elements present in the different pieces of furniture in the house, such as the original coffee table and the bookcase in the living room, designed exclusively by our team of interior designers.
Functionality and design at the kitchen
To create a certain separation between the kitchen area and the entrance hall, we designed a multifunctional module that we use as a storage unit, breakfast preparation area and storage space on the kitchen side, and as an entrance hall unit on the other side. This way we managed to make the most of the available surface area, in a more efficient and decorative way.
For the cooking area we thought of an architectural style adapted to modern loft-style kitchens. For this reason, we perfectly integrated the electrical appliances into the room, so that they were not excessively obvious and aesthetically aggressive.
We also combined the wood in such a way that it provides a special game of colours with the rest of the furniture in the living room, achieving a total integration of the different atmospheres.

The master bedroom of this designer loft has a dressing room and integrated bathroom.
The bed headboard is a design by our team, upholstered in Güell Lamadrid fabric, as well as the bedside tables, where the legs with “Mecano”-type black metal structures stand out. On top of these we placed two white table lamps by Vibia.
