Curbed has reported that industrial designer Karim Rashid has listed his loft, which is located in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood, for $2,795,000. The Egyptian-born designer, known for his off-beat designs, purchased the property in 2008 for $2.475M.
One would imagine that any designer would have a very particular vision for their own home, and Rashid’s loft certainly lives up to that standard. In an exclusive feature in Interior Design magazine recently, we got a peek into the 42 feet x 42 feet space. The loft boasts 1’5 foot ceilings, a brand new Italian lacquered custom kitchen, LED lighting throughout (including floor lighting), glass walls, glass pocket doors, TV in the bathroom, steam shower, designer toilets, a huge walk in closet and even a ballet floor. Rashid himself designed the faucets, sinks, mirrors and tiles, which are all included with the property.
The loft is located in the exclusive Chelsea 19 Condo building, a 44-unit “doorman” building in the heart of that famous neighborhood.
