The Eames Lounge Chair in Small NYC Apartments and Other Small Spaces

02/11/2016 Manhattan Home Design
When living in New York City, or any other major metropolitan area, the size of oneís abode is always a concern. For millions of city dwellers, this is but another feat to overcome, except it is a daily reality. Mid-20th century furniture is always a good edition to any indoor space, especially for those interested in modernizing or giving their place an air of luxury. A luxurious feel is even possible in a space lacking, wellÖspace. You just need to know how to configure your furniture and make smart buys.
As the most popular furniture item stemming from the mid-century, the Eames Lounge Chair & Ottoman is usually the product that begs for the most interior design help, especially in the case of small areas. Notice how in some of the below examples, the Eames Lounge Chair is in the midst of small, confined spaces. There are ways to mend this. Here are some tips and tricks that prove you donít need a spacious room to own an Eames Lounge Chair replica.

Typical NYC Apartment:

Typical NYC Apartment

This living room is a great example of the tenant using up as much space as is available in the room. Thereís even a small desk in the upper left, as not all bedrooms are large enough for a writing desk, etc. Instead of some nightstand-esque drawers, the tenant here uses a small red container for extra storage. It also works great as an accessory to an otherwise shabby room. Thereís even a small area used for a plant, another great accessory to go with the Eames lounge chair replica. As for the Eames Lounge Chair & Ottoman replica itself, we suggest, pushing it to the back right corner, only slightly going in front of the radiator. This will not depreciate the chair and its centrality to the room. This will simply create more space in this room, as currently, there is some empty space between the right window and Eames chair replica. The tenant can still have easy access to the window by pushing the chair further back towards this window. With the radiator nearby, sitting on this chair will still be a comforting experience.

Within entertainment systems:

This living room is very compatible with the Eames Lounge Chair, color-wise. The black leather matches accordingly with the black shelves, coffee table, stereos and TV stand. This room makes great use of the left wall, which stacks various items, despite some of them closing parts of the window. With limited floor space, the tenant makes good use of the available space by placing two plants atop a book shelf. Since the middle wall cannot have much furniture stacked, it is adorned with art works instead. While aesthetically pleasing, these boards with wall art and the nearby stereos are in conflict with the Eames Lounge Chair & Ottoman. It wouldnít be very comfortable to have music or what have you blaring at you, no matter how cozy your seat is. We suggest moving this chair to the wall unseen, opposite of the center one, and placed further away from the entertainment system, which makes it all the better on the tenantís eyes and ears. The eyes will be better kept away from the TV screen, while the ears will be spared of the roar. It would also be a lot easier on the eyes without one area being stuffed. If this is not possible, the lounge chair should be edged closer to the right side of the picture, or parallel to the couch.

A One-Couch Living Room

A One-Couch Living Room

This living room does not sacrifice style in spite of its smallness. With only one couch, it more than compensates the limited furnishings with an Eames Lounge chair standing right beside it. The close proximity of the lounge chair to the couch does not soil the setup of the room, which still manages to exude hominess. There is even a tint of elegance, due largely in part to the Eames Lounge Chair. The tenant here does not waste the limited space by placing a nightstand or side table beside the couch. Instead, the close by Eames lounge chair diversifies the setup, as it is different in size and form from the couch. Notice that this configuration also works, as the couch is not very wide and can easily be mistaken for a love seat. The small coffee table is also convenient for this room, with its irregular shape that grabs attention and its room-saving size. We suggest moving the small chair in the back and adding a set of drawers or small table beside it, to seas up the room and matching better with the Eames Lounge Chair. This would reduce its plainness.
