One of the most distinctive homes in the Hudson Valley is back on the market. Surrounded by nearly 46 acres with views of the Catskills, the “Sleeve House” is an ultra-contemporary home created as two long volumes, a smaller one “sleeved” into a larger one, which allows for separate public and private spaces. Designed by Adam Dayem’s Actual/Office Architects, the three-bedroom home sits on a sloped hill and is wrapped in charred wood of varying thickness, a nod to the rural area’s historic barns and agricultural buildings. 6sqft first wrote about this home when it was listed for $2,100,000 in 2017. Now it’s available again, this time for $2,275,000. If you’re loving the interior design of this home, we’ve sourced a few key pieces that are identical or similar to the items in the listing photos. So you can get the look–without having to move.

Built in 1929 by Bing & Bing and designed by prolific architect Emery Roth, this bright one-bedroom co-op at 225 East 73rd Street is as classic as it gets. Part of the Eastgate complex, this Upper East Side home has plenty of pre-war charm in the form of beamed ceilings, original hardwood floors, and gracious proportions, with the cozy surprise of a wood-burning fireplace. It’s now available for $725,000. If you’re loving the interior design of this home, we’ve sourced a few key pieces that are identical or similar to the items in the listing photos.

If you live in the city, you probably don’t have acres of yard or a sprawling patio (if you have access to any private outdoor space at all, you’re in a fortunate minority). Choose furniture, gadgets, and decor items that work in your space, and you’ll find yourself with an outdoor living paradise.

A side table adds functionality and convenience, providing a great place to set drinks and food, eyeglasses, the remote, and other items. Some people use them for lamps, floral arrangements, photos, and other decor items. Others use a stylish side table as a design element, either as a cohesive piece that brings the other furniture in the room together or for a unique pop of color. If you have a small space, you may be limited in size. However, these 12 side tables ensure that you won’t be limited in style and function, while also not breaking the bank, with selected pieces ranging in price from $100 to $450.

While it may seem that the world of consumer goods is one perpetual sale, when we’re really in the market for something specific, a discount can really help. Furniture is expensive, and the wealth of choices can be overwhelming. Sometimes a seasonal sale–or a hidden clearance section–can be just the push we need to acquire that brilliant piece we’ve been coveting. Below are some opportunities to furnish your space with the help of sales that are happening right now.

New York may be one of the most expensive cities in the world, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of deals to uncover. If you’re looking to dress up your walls or find a new couch that doesn’t cost a month’s rent, a thrift store is often your best bet. So where can you find these wallet-friendly unicorns? There are plenty of larger chains throughout the five boroughs like Housing Works, the Salvation Army, and Goodwill, but also many under-the-radar shops that each offer their own brand of charm.

You can find the weird and the wonderful, give new life to ancient floor lamps or grab a barely-used armchair. Plus, what’s good for your wallet also happens to be good for the environment. And best of all, many of these stores are money-making vehicles for various nonprofits or charities, meaning your money is working twice as hard. From a 10,000-square-foot warehouse to a carefully curated resale shop, here are the eight best stores in NYC to thrift for home goods.

Poufs and ottomans are available in a variety of sizes and materials, making them ideal for living rooms, bedrooms, kids’ rooms, and nurseries–as well as on the patio. Below, find some of our favorite poufs and ottomans you can buy online.

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.
