Inside the ALD ‘Look’

Posted by Randy Sloan on

One part industrial-vintage + one part mid-century-modern with a big scoop of tongue-in-cheek humor… This is the A Life Designed ‘look.’

July will mark the four year anniversary of the launch of the A Life Designed online store which offers carefully curated Rough-Luxe furnishings and decor for the home and retail environment. Now, 48 months into our grand adventure, we are extremely pleased to report that the response to our shop has been overwhelmingly positive!… Thank you!

One question we are often asked is what exactly is the A Life Designed ‘look?’ What informs and influences the types of pieces we choose to bring to our store and offer to you the viewer? This post and the accompanying images, (all from the A Life Designed studio), aims to answer that very question.

Perhaps the easiest definition of the A Life Designed look we strive to create and offer is a;

"Masculine bachelor pad that the female in your life will love!"

Because let’s face it gentlemen, it doesn’t matter how much you spend on your space or how much crap you fill it with, if the woman in your life doesn’t want to spend time in your abode… what’s the point? That’s where A Life Designed comes in.

Mixing equal parts industrial-chic, steampunk and mid-century-modern surprises, the A Life Designed aesthetic is rusty, weathered, and timeless. We search for pieces that tell a story; from a well-worn leather chair to a burnished metal table made smooth by years of use. These are the pieces that embody timeless integrity, harken back to a bygone era and add instant character to any room. Imagine a dark Italian wine barBatman’s lair… a Soho loft… You get the idea. Sophisticated and polished but with a rough edge, that’s the look we strive to offer you at A Life Designed.

We look forward to continuing to grow and bring you the very best Rough Luxe, industrial-inspired goodies we can find. But most of all, we look forward to the pleasure of turning our customers into ‘friends’. Thank you for your support!

  • Love the look! Add fresh flowers to some scenes, as a nod to the feminine side.
