clean living

clean living

a 6,000-square-foot blank
canvas begs for embellishment,
but this bucktown home
resisted the fast and easy sins
of overdoing it.

purposed and deliberate,
the space is a reign of essentiality.

without excess,
without meaningless things,
the serenity of architecture
and form unfolds.

a floating staircase of
wooden slabs layered into
an iron forest of vertical
rods puts it all on the line.

blackened steel, white walls
and considered planes—

lest this visual diet seem

a mod chair upholstered in
denim from the fam’s fav pairs
offers a sly smile.
