Inside a Sunny Philly Loft Converted From an Old Shoe Factory

This early 20th-century Philly loft located in a former shoe factory is probably the best case scenario for studio living. Clocking in at 600 square feet, there is a lot to work with. Lucky residents Emma Fried-Cassorla and James Healy, who first and foremost love the incredible natural light they get from all those factory-style windows, capitalized on this major asset by hanging up a ton of local Philly art and plants. The interior scheme, which places a sofa, workspace, and dining table all along the large windows, is also made more spacious by a tried and true tiny living trick: a murphy bed, built by Healy himself and customized with a Stormtrooper decal, opens up the living area while adding a barrier of sorts between the "bedroom" and the kitchen.
