Tiny, Streamlined Home Fit for a Family
August 8, 2014
This family of three (with number four on the way!) in Brooklyn was faced with a challenge that many young urban families face — they were expanding but their space was not. After running out of room in a tiny apartment, the family decided it was time to make a change. After countless searches, the couple found a two-bedroom apartment in Brooklyn — it needed a lot of work but had great potential.
By making smart renovation choices, getting rid of unnecessary items and choosing furniture that performs multiple functions, the space transformed into a beautiful home. David Friedlander and Jacqueline Schmidt are a prime example of a family “editing” their lives — the philosophy that LifeEdited, the company David works for, champions.

Because they fold out of sight (very easily insists Friedlander, doing a Vanna-like on-the-spot demonstration), the couple were able to create an uncluttered, L-shaped living area… The house-proud couple claim that they are living examples of the company’s motto: Their home is all about ‘the luxury of less.'” — Dwell
