When dievca moved to NYC she bought furniture at IKEA because she has a storage load of Antiques in the Midwest and she wasn’t sure if she was going to stay…. The sofabed was an IKEA floor model that was on sale because it was discontinued, so around year 10 dievca had to get a new sofa cover made in Australia…
Why did dievca keep the sofabed? The pull-out bed was very very very comfortable – the sofa itself was not (she knows – she’s crazy) ?!?!?!?!?
dievca was looking for an upgrade and she found a sofabed she liked in a Hotel Suite on Roosevelt Island, but it was too heavy to lift so she couldn’t figure out the maker. she asked the Hotel Design Team but they never responded to her email….. So, when a neighbor wanted to upgrade to a larger sofa after 6 months, dievca hopped on to the purchase of their sofabed (great condition and it fits into her decor).
It was amazing — a building worker got her sofabed out and the larger newer one into the apartment in 45 minutes or less. Aiding and abetting her crazy and impulsive decision!
How did it work out?
The sofa is larger and more comfortable, but she hasn’t slept on the bed yet. (It’s only been two days). Cross fingers 🤞
The stove is clicking and the electric spark is working.
click, click, click, click, click
Too bad it won’t turn off…
It’s a morning – dievca needs to get to work.
she doesn’t think that there is a gas smell~
All top pieces removed.
Stove surface wiped with a clean dry cloth.
Oven on a 350F to see if heat can evaporate any excess moisture.
Maintenace Guy on the way in 30 min.
Thank goodness for canned coffee.
What do you do when you find the perfect sized bench for your small NYC Apartment?
Pop open a bottle of champagne!
That’s what dievca did when she found the Room & Board Baltic Bench:
This clever bench and coat rack is the result of a partnership between Room & Board and students at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD) in an annual Design Scholar Competition. One of the winning designs, this piece features a wood seat with a small indentation to hold keys and other small objects (available on either the left or right side of the bench). The base and coat rack are made from powder-coated steel to round out the modern mix of materials.
