Step to the Future by Let’s Design
Step to the Future is a lovely apartment located in Lviv, Ukraine, redesigned in 2021 by Let’s Design.
An object about emotions, about what is behind this interior. When you have the walls of a 1916 townhouse in your hands, the first feeling is an embarrassment. You understand that everything here is filled with a history of more than a hundred years. The task was to preserve interior items, which are a source of unusual, filled with the past atmosphere. In the photo, you will notice a kitchen hearth, Art Nouveau stoves, doors, parquet, furniture, chandeliers. One of them was made in 1934 in Poland. We found that the lamp factory is still working. The other one made in 1955 is the Stalinist Empire style. And as a part of the light composition, we took our lamps. The constellation Spacelights as the author touches on the history of these apartments. No, we did not remove the parquet. It was sanded, plastered, and varnished on site. As well as doors panels. We kept the living room decorated with artistic parquet and a stove with a crown, a bedroom with English type parquet as was intended by the architect. We saved the scar on the living room wall from the electric cable that cut the wall diagonally to the TV. In memory of the ideology times in Lviv. The kitchen was the most difficult task. The first was a kitchen hearth. To preserve it not only as a sculpture of time but also to endow it with the function of cooking. And then we supplemented the picture with new elements that will only emphasize a basis. Some of them speak of the Secession era in Lviv as a painting on the wall by Vlodko Gray. Others about the 70’s – restored armchairs and coffee tables, chest of drawers, bedside tables. And the details that are inherent in our era have closed the full picture of the next life in this apartment.
