This industrial chic home is owned by a professional couple with two young children. They have owned and inhibited adjacent lofts in Toronto historic Merchandise Building for a while but later decided to merge the 1,763- and 1,372-square-foot units together. With the help from Croma Design designers Ryan Martin and Amy Kent, the 20-century Chicago-style architecture with great bones, high ceilings and factory windows was turned into a stylish and edgy space. Let's check out the results of this wonderful makeover, shall we?

Such a fabulous home, don't you think? The first thing that caught my eyes is definitely that amazing fireplace in the living room! The outstanding fireplace surround is made from 12 feet of hot rolled steel to create architectural drama and visual statement, which I absolutely love! I also like how bright, how open and how seamlessly the two units flow. With a great mix of sleek modern furnishings, touches of brass accessories and a nod to industrial influence, this home feels luxurious and livable all at once. What are your thoughts?
