Resource Furniture is a proud sponsor of the LifeEdited project, an ultra-low-footprint, ultra-high-efficiency apartment that offers many functions — a home office, a guest room, a large dining table for a party of 12, and lounge space for eight — all in 420 square feet.
In large urban areas like New York City where space is tight and compromises on comfort are often thought to be necessary, the Graham Hill LifeEdited Apartment demonstrates that you don’t have to. Graham Hill, entrepreneur and founder of TreeHugger.com, along with the team at LifeEdited wanted to come up with a living space with a small footprint–both physically and environmentally.
“…An ideal New York apartment—one with a small footprint, both physically and environmentally, and one that offers just as much beauty and functionality as a pad multiple times its size… When you walk in, you encounter what is, at first glance, a small studio apartment. Within that cube are actually 8 functional spaces. The living room and office becomes the bedroom with a tug of a bookshelf [Swing]. Open one of the closets and you’ll find 10 stackable chairs [Pocket Chairs] that go around a telescopic dining table for large dinner parties [Goliath]. An entire guest room with bunk-beds [Lollisoft] and a closet is revealed behind a wall that slides out on tracks. And of course, a well-equipped kitchen and bathroom await.”
