By Michelle Cohen, Thu, January 13, 2022

There has never been a better time to design a corner of your home that’s dedicated to the pursuit of cozy. Whether it’s a reading nook, a scrolling snug, or a daydreaming den, this chill zone should provide a break from the home office, the home gym, and whatever part of your home is Grand Central Station. That doesn’t mean it can’t be as easy on the eyes as it is on your mood. Below you’ll find a selection of chic and cozy lounge chairs to elevate your off-duty oasis (and if you really still want a BarcaLounger, you’ll find one here).

Lovers of mid-20th-century modern design have never had so many options. Vintage and new versions of designs that defined the century, from Art Deco to ’80s-style Memphis–often with a focus on Scandinavian aesthetics and 1950s “Atomic Age”–can be found everywhere from e-Bay to trendy High Street stores like CB2. Vintage treasures from gallery-level to quirky bargains abound online. And many of the best designs are still in production today, available from sources that specialize in finding that perfect Prouve dining table or Togo sofa, genuine or “inspired by.” Below you’ll find enough sources to make your modernist dream interior a reality–without a trip to Denmark or a time machine.

New Yorkers are no strangers to moving, whether it’s because they found a new roommate, a better rent deal, or a more convenient neighborhood. Not only is furnishing your apartment expensive, but it’s also not guaranteed that the new sofa you bought will fit in your next place. As a result, many nomadic city dwellers are turning to furniture rentals to outfit their temporary abodes. Furniture rental companies offer a cheaper, more flexible, and more sustainable alternative to buying new. Plus, most companies deliver, assemble, and then remove the furniture when your rental term is up, alleviating some of that moving-related stress. Ahead, we take a look at six of the best furniture rental companies that serve New York City and break down each by the products offered, lease terms, and rent-to-buy options.
