Storied setting Bright threads of history weave through Washington Market Loft. Look for carved busts and urns in the master bedroom, while a collection of unglazed pottery form a tableau on the dining table. Tribeca too is layered with history. Although its lofts have been reimagined inside, their detailed facades and latticed external ladders are as denizens past would remember. Take a tour – there are plenty lining the surrounding streets – then return home for a soak in the old-fashioned, claw-footed tub. Time travellers Your hosts travel often, seeking out places that transition between the ages. That’s what drew them to Tribeca too, along with its proximity to the river. ##Look back The open-plan living area is particularly chic, its sumptuous velvet armchairs and antique footstools sitting alongside mid-century coffee tables. And walls are subtle with texture, from the ivory stencilling in the living space to the whitewashed bricks in the bedroom. Flashes of the home's history have been carefully preserved – in the dining room the beams of the ceiling have been excavated, and stained glass gleams above the French doors. But for this home’s glimpses of the past, its look is also fresh – there are warm gray cabinets paired with lilac walls in the kitchen, contemporary monochrome tiles in the bathroom, and a tufted king bed in the master bedroom.
