Putting Art Together: A Loft Above
Too many windows to hang art? Try sculpture!
Colin from Griffith Interior Design loves art. While working on the LODO bachelor pad above, he brought a client into the art gallery to see how we could put the finishing touches on his loft. The large-scale artwork the client was drawn to complimented the masculine design aesthetic Colin had created.
But the entire west wall of the loft was windows, a common art challenge in Colorado—where do I hang the art? We recommended a Jonathan Hils sculpture that would create shadow play from the natural light. Munson Hunt’s large-scale organic wood wall reliefs were placed across the room to add an organic component to the otherwise industrial space. Sculpture is a playful way to anchor a big, open space and provide unexpected sophistication to a collection.
Check out the art pieces selected for the bachelor pad:
Munson Hunt: “Bark Pair”
charred and graphite dusted cottonwood wall reliefs, 62" x 17" x 4" each
Ben Strawn: “Thin Place”

Jason Lucas: “Redemption 5”
mixed media on panel, 56”x42”
Jonathan Hils: “Amalgamation”
wood and steel, 87”x60”x20”
Robert Buelteman: "Golden Columbine”
