Located in a former carpet warehouse built more than a century ago, this light-flooded loft in Barcelona features a library corner with steel shelves, banker's chairs, and a vintage telephone. For sourcing ideas, read on. Photography by Jordi Miralles via Shoot 115 . Above: A classic Eames conference table is paired with traditional banker's chairs. Above: Translucent window shades cut the glare but allow light to filter the room; the Shade Store has a good selection.  Above: A Ray Pendant light and vintage phone.     Above: A trio of simple Vintage Industrial Bookcases from Restoration Hardware would create a similar shelving unit ($1,040 each, marked down from $1,095). Alternatively, the 108-inch-wide French Library Double Shelving unit starts at $1,325. Above: The Eames Rectangular Table with laminate top and segmented base is $1,369 at Y Living. Above: For a similar vase, consider the Heath Cearmics Multi-Stem Vase ; $92-$102 at Didrik's. Above: The 1940s Banker's Chair in antiqued black is $495 at Restoration Hardware. See eBay for a range of options. Above: The spun aluminum Metalarte  Ray Pendant L ight was designed by Jordi Veciana; it's available in two sizes (small is $630 and medium is $992) and in a black or white finish from Y Lighting. Another option is Tom Dixon's Cone Light Large  (shown above); $1,406 CAD ($1,210 USD) at GR Shop.   Above: The Crosley 302 Desk Phone is $45.09 at Target.
