This Airy Home in a Former Textile Factory is the Quintessential Toronto Loft

For years, Mackenzie Yeates and Ben Sehl lived in a beautiful old Victorian house in Toronto’s Little Italy. The only trouble with the space was the light. The home was walled off into many small rooms, making the space feel cramped and dark. So when they were looking to move, they quickly fell in love with a bright, open-concept Leslieville loft converted from a former textile factory. There was also the serendipity factor – Mackenzie and Ben founded Kotn, a Canadian clothing store that specializes in authentic Egypt cotton, and living in an old textile factory seemed like the perfect fit. They moved in in 2018 and transformed the space into an airy, art-filled oasis.
