An awe-inspiring factory conversion

Good news! It's Friday! I hope you've totally rocked the working week or simply powered through everything you had to do - in which case you totally deserve one of these  - skål! Since I'm on a bit of an industrial-style role (with a feature of this fabulous converted warehouse and a review of Sara Emslie's book Urban Pioneer in the last two days alone), I thought I'd complete the week with one final industrial space.  Elze, behind beautiful blog Everything Elze, captured this magnificent home in a former Philips factory in Eindhoven just before the owner Lieke moved out. Simple cognac, wood and black furnishings allow the original features of the building including the vast windows and high, concrete ceiling to take centre-stage, while natural textures and plants bring the living space to life. 
What an incredible place to live, don't you think?!

Could you imagine having the space to have not one but three massive industrial pendants over the dining table?!(They remind me a lot of the ones from my favourite Copenhagen restaurant - Höst which I featured here). Any tips on where to find lamps like these? By the way, I was so pleased to get your tips on the armchair in this post - thank you!

Get the look from Lieke's home: source vintage school chairs here. I love this cognac leather sofa. cross blanket. This lovely jump suit is similar as is this leather satchel.

You can see the full tour here and keep up to date with Lieke's latest projects on instagram here. And if you fancy it, there are plenty of converted factories to drool over here (this artist's home is one of my favourites - isn't it amazing?! Love the "Nobody panic, I know origami and pilates" bag!).

It's been a while since I shared a little link love, and there's so much wonderful inspiration out there right now I think it's about time, don't you?!
