If you're familiar with New York City real estate, you know that many homes and apartments are short on space, yet big on statement-making style. Due to the small square footage of the average living environment, New York City dwellers tend to opt for furniture pieces that are compact, and most importantly, multifunctional. This means that coffee tables must also double as storage spaces, seating that turns into extra bedding, and small pieces like bar carts that can wheel from room to room are extremely popular.
For a New York City vibe in your living space, go for pieces of furniture that have straight, sleek lines and serve multiple purposes. Aim for a mostly neutral color palette with a splash of one or two bold accent colors.
