Imagine this: you live in a spacious loft atop a metropolis. You're living space is as eclectic as the people who walk your city's streets, and the ceilings are as tall as the hopes and aspirations of all who flock there. Your loft is warm and inviting, yet cool and refined. It's chic, and it's intelligent, but it's also warm and familiar. These very spaces, in both New York City and Germany, reflect that sentiment - although they're worlds apart.
