We’ve all got that one chair that doubles in function – clothing rack, entryway console, nightstand… you see where we’re going with this. As this holds especially true for small-space dwellers, finding the right piece from the start is key. Enter one surprisingly versatile chair that’s not only seriously stylish, but it can seamlessly blend in within a variety of settings, too. Take a look!

the URBAN ROOFTOP City-dwellers are all too familiar with the issues that arise from the lack of a garden or a backyard. The first and foremost? A laid-back spot to unwind in after a long day at work, preferably with a cocktail in hand. For those who are lucky enough to have access to a rooftop, creating a mini escape is a must.
Lay out a jute or weatherproof rug to designate the zone of the outdoor space. A portable bar cart should go without saying, along with the potted plants scattered throughout the space. We paired our statement chair with an indigo patterned pillow and decked the surrounding area with globe string lights.

the READING NOOK The bare essentials of a reading nook typically entail a comfortable spot coupled with a good title. The rest? Consider it extraneous but highly necessary. Our nook consists of an enveloping chair coupled with a throw pillow and a convenient form of lighting nearby. A colorful landing pad under the setup helps designate the area’s confines, while an oversized print completes the look.
For good measure, throw in a couple of extra pillows or cushions on the floor, in case you feel like switching things up
the MINIMALIST ENTRY When decorating with minimalism in mind, it’s important that every piece hold a specific purpose with functionality at its core. Our entry is comprised of a console, mirror, catch-all, a potted plant, and a statement seat in lieu of the typical bench.
To offset the potential sterility of the set up, a patterned wallpaper was in order. We opted for a graphic take on the classic palm print to instill a contrasting element between the backdrop and the furnishings.
