Right across the street from Sara D. Roosevelt Park and steps away from East Houston and Bowery, this fully-furnished two-bedroom at 210 Forsyth Street offers an eclectic mix of contemporary, vintage, and rustic decor for the asking price of $6,500 a month. Available for a 12-month lease beginning on July 1st, the chic Lower East Side space doesn’t shy away from divisive design choices—there’s a bathtub in the bedroom—and even includes furnishings for cats.
Future renters should have a soft spot for antlers, as they feature prominently throughout the living space, where you can find them on the wall, on side tables, and even resting on the floor. A custom curved wall in the living room provides an element of surprise, while west-facing windows fill the space with light. A cat house and climbing structure in the living room means your cat will find a spot to get comfortable as well, or you could just use it as a shelf for houseplants.
The antler motif continues in the dining area, where a large wood table adds to the rustic vibes while a sleek globe chandelier and chairs with modern cut-outs keep things contemporary.
The adjacent kitchen features crisp white and frosted glass cabinets and ample counter space.
A narrow hallway with multiple built-in closets leads you into the master bedroom, which includes an elevated platform bed and another tiled platform for a white soaking tub and a sink (the toilet is separate and tucked away behind a closet). The debate on bedroom tubs is still ongoing, but in this minimal, white space it does seem to encourage a certain sanctuary feel.
There’s a second bedroom, a small office area with a built-in desk, a second bathroom with a blue mosaic shower, and a washer and dryer already set up in the unit. The building offers a common garden and though cats are clearly welcome, dogs, unfortunately, are not.
