Decorating New York City Studio Apartment

You’ve just gotten your New York City studio apartment, and you’re wondering how on earth you can make this condensed space into something that looks like home. The challenge is before you, and it’s an exciting one, allowing you to bring all of your imagination and creativity to the fore.

Viesso, one of today’s most forward-thinking furniture companies, is ready, willing, and able to come to the rescue with its range of sofas, beds, eco fireplaces, and more. With pieces designed to fit into even the most compact area, you can find just the right combination to put together the comfortable, contemporary apartment of your dreams.

Rebecca Two Seater Sofa

Chic and sassy, you get some pretty breezy seating with this beauty designed by sohoConcept studio. Upholstered in leather, PPM, or wool, she comes in a myriad of colors and can easily be customized with fabric designed by the upholstery genius, Maharam Kvadrat. Spicing up any space, the Rebecca adds a great touch with her super comfy seat cushion set on a chromed steel wire base that is as stable as it is contemporary. The S-shaped springs add even more strength and flexibility to the design, and your guests will find it hard to comply with your final farewells as they dig their heels in for a few more moments of sofa bliss.

The Richmond Sofa

Down and feathers. Need we say more? This classic sofa makes its statement with an elegant tuxedo style frame, reversible cushions, exposed French seams, and sturdy wood block feet. Its inner frame is constructed of 100% FSC certified wood that belies its plush, relaxed, and inviting exterior. Covered in durable fabric with compelling names such as cashmere carbon, lattice granite, and linen latte, the Richmond blends with any color scheme, creating a cool and classy addition to your New York pad.

The Bamboo Float 2-Seater

For those of you who gravitate towards a more Eastern feel, this exquisitely designed sofa created by Viesso has its own attached end table, eliminating the need for an extra piece of furniture. Great for a small space, the sofa has a superlatively Feng Shui appeal that whispers modernity as it makes its unique and subtle statement. As one of the company’s signature green concept pieces, it is made of bamboo and is only built when it is ordered, leaving no waste products behind.

The Fiftynine Sofa Bed

Imagine yourself sitting on soft fabric covering a layer of foam and a layer of heavy fiber fill under which lay buoyant Icomfort pocket springs. Place these springs on a matte black powder-coated metal frame supported by legs made of walnut wood and you’ve got the Fiftynine. Add the row of playful multicolored buttons at the back and you have a signature piece that can accommodate any décor. With a comfort level that begs you to lounge the day away, by night it folds down easily to become a heavenly bed. What could be better than having the very best of both worlds all in one?

The Ekay Bed

It comes in twin, full, queen, king, and Cal-king size, so no matter how tiny or spacious your studio, you can find a way to fit the Ekay into your life. With its matching head and footboard, a frame made of locally sourced SFT certified alder hardwood, and simple lines that ask for nothing more than you have a sound, serene sleep every night, this Viesso-designed bed is a given. What’s more is that you can really go green on this one, choosing natural fillings and natural or recycled fabrics that keep your home as sustainable as you are. The company’s standards confirm the minimal footprint, making sure that there is low chemical use and no wasted materials in the construction.

The Onto Bed

This excellent bed also comes in all sizes. A sleek piece that is a magnet for relaxation, it sports a tall, cushioned headboard that slants to let you sit up comfortably to read that last paragraph before the eyelids start to droop. The Onto is beautiful and considerate, making sure you’ll never stub a toe with its recessed steel legs at the foot that never get in your way. Additionally the bed has castors underneath the headboard, which allow you to move it easily when you want to clean or change its location to another area in your apartment. With layers of multiple density CFC-free foam, the headboard and rails are soft and kind, and come with removable covers for easy machine washing. Made with beech wood slats and a rubber strap system on the base, you’re going to love the sensation of floating as you ease under the covers.

The Buden Bed

This bed exemplifies a perfect solution for those really small New York studios where every saved inch is a blessing. Made of solid bamboo, this bed functions not only as a beautiful art piece, but also as the ultimate space saver. With a base the same size as the mattress, there is no wasted space with the Buden, and as an additional bonus, there are cutouts and drawers for storage within its construction. Highly customizable, you can add more areas for hiding your goodies if you need to, which is one of the reasons why this model is the one savvy New Yorker’s crave for their abodes.

Eco Fireplaces

Indoor or outdoor, eco-fireplaces are beautiful and portable, and make great conversation pieces as they emit warmth with their dancing flames. Using clean domestic ethanol, they emit no harmful emissions and can be inserted onto a level platform, or used as stand-alone elements that also function as art pieces.

The Avani is an exquisitely contemporary model made with a stainless steel burner and a high temperature ceramic frame that comes in black, white, or silver. If you’ve got one of those New York studios with a conventional fireplace, stick this beauty right in there for a perfectly modern hearth, or use it as a stand alone in your living or bedroom area. You can even take it out to the balcony if you have one. Burning for approximately three hours, it measures only 15.5” wide, 7” deep, 4.5” high, and weighs 26 pounds.

The Mercer is another perfectly sized fireplace for a studio, with its marble composite shell housing and black steel insert. Coming with a long lighter and a control wand tool, it burns for approximately four hours and measures 16.5” wide 19” deep, 6” high, and weighs 20 pounds. When you want to create an atmosphere that is inviting and unique, these eco-fireplaces make a gorgeous addition to any space.
