A Reimagined Turn Of The Century Garment Factory Filled With Vintage Character
Meg Ryan’s NYC loft is a vintage collector’s dream of heaven on earth. As a serial Renovator, Meg Ryan loves decorating so much; her son, Jack, affectionately calls her style, “Meg-anize,” which means putting her unique touch and vision on their home. This project is the ninth space she has renovated. Ryan took Architectural Digest for an exclusive home tour of her latest project, a turn of the century garment manufacturing factory impeccably reimagined while remaining true to its industrial heritage.

Ryan has reached the stage in her life, where it is essential for her to live harmoniously with the things she has collected over time. Her decades of traveling the world on location for her films created many opportunities for rummaging through vintage-furniture stores across the globe. Her home is a genuine reflection of the many layers and periods of her life. A delicate balance of modern artfully arranged with found antiques and vintage.
“I never used to be sentimental. But now I see the beauty of layers, of having the periods of your life come together in harmony.” Meg Ryan
