Robert Vanselow, Loft R

“I am the most meticulous, picky person. You can tell,” says Robert Vanselow, motioning around his living room. “This place is showroom ready.”

The clean lines and, in Loft R's case, balcony with a view of downtown's skyline suit Robert Vanselow's urbane sensibility. "This was spot on," he says.

A transplant from Florida, Vanselow wanted to minimize the stress of moving and starting a new job, so he bought the loft’s display furniture outright and came to Wichita with just a few things. The only personal possessions in the apartment for the first nine months were a few appliances and his clothes, which line the closet like fashions in a high-end men’s shop.

Born in Panama to a Jamaican mother and a German father, Vanselow now finds himself in the center of the United States, surrounded by open country. The Finn Lofts, with their clean lines—and, in Loft R’s case, a balcony with a view of downtown’s skyline—suit his urbane sensibility. “This was spot on,” he says. “I knew I was going to live here before I got off the plane.”
