Fifth Avenue Apartment

© Wing Wong

Space efficiency was a major design factor in this one bedroom apartment on Fifth Avenue that serves as a second home. Pocket doors were installed to the living room to provide privacy when necessary but allow light to enter the interior of the apartment, and a spacious foyer now acts as a dining room. Custom cabinetry in the home office and bedroom maximizes storage space for books, and millwork details provide formality and visual interest to an otherwise simple space.

Look for furniture that doubles A lot of people make this fundamental mistake of buying compact furniture for compact spaces. No, that does not work. You should look for smart furniture for small spaces instead. Sometimes full size furniture create an illusion of space too. The trick is not size but roles. Multipurpose furniture for small spaces takes on many roles, all the while making your home look fabulous. This photograph shows how ‘double-up’ furniture (the sofa-bed and the window storage-bench) can really work wonders.
