For the second year in a row, Dwell has collaborated with Klein Financial’s Met Lofts to bring modern luxury and high style to downtown Los Angeles apartments.

Frank Sleisinski, Laura Schwartz-Muller and Rachel Winokur rise to the challenge of transforming urban apartments at Met Lofts in just five weeks. Basically, the country’s largest show dedicated to modern design living.

Sleisinski transformed a two-bedroom, 1,346-square-foot apartment into a serene private setting.

Laura Schwartz Muller’s design of a studio space at California Met Lofts is modern urban apartment living at its best. From an empty space, the designer created a convertible studio. The living room space is understated yet sophisticated.
