Not looking forward to this week’s predicted wintery weather? Make the icy temps and slush-covered streets a little more bearable by coming home and cozying up with your sofa (this is also a great option if you’ll be spending Valentine’s Day solo). Moody Nest is Frankfurt-based designer Hanna Ernsting‘s pouf with a blanket that turns into the perfect place to hibernate.
Finding the right piece of furniture to fit your living space can be the difference between a happy and a cluttered home. And as New Yorkers, most of us are working with limited square footage and need to make these decisions considering both space and function. The Gazel sofa and shelving unit designed by Faruk Malhan for Koleksiyon is a great example of the multifunctional pieces we city dwellers should be looking for. Its elegant and modern design features wrap-around shelving, adding both visual interest and functionality to what otherwise would be a lackluster surface.
