Close Quarters

June 26, 2014

Living in a major city has its ups and downs, lack of space notwithstanding. Don’t let minimal square footage push you out into the ‘burbs. With strategic styling and plenty of planning, your condo (that once caused claustrophobia) will feel like a pint-sized palace. Get the most out of your small space with these multi-functional stylish pieces for micro-living.

1. Ditch the Dark

Say goodbye to bulky black leather sofas that suck up space and light. Instead, up the style quotient with retro silhouettes in neutral tones – they’re big on character, but small on floor space. Webster Green Sofa, $1,395

2. Space to Reflect

One of the best ways to introduce an illusion of space is with mirrors – lots and lots of mirrors. We love this creative take on a classic. Ring Mirror Price, $179

3. Open Up

The toughest thing about living in close quarters is the lack of storage. Banish those woes with an open armoire that will store all of your knick-knacks while saving you space and frustration. Ligna Oak Open Rack Large, $2,799* on sale!

4. Front Row Seats

Since you’ll be forgoing the loveseat and armchair, invest in comfortable, and easily transportable, dining chairs. Perfect for when guests arrive! Rico Side Chair Cappuccino, $299

5. Well Rounded

When space is limited, a domineering dining table is out of the question. Instead, pick up a functional round table that can act as a desk, added counter space or a makeup table when you need it – sans the space taken up by its square and rectangular counterparts. Dover Dining Table Walnut, $575
