It’s been a while since we featured the apartment of an FG regular, but we’re back at it and more excited than ever! Ellen began shopping at Furnish Green when she moved into her Upper East Side apartment 2 years ago. With no distinct design style in mind, she based her purchasing around functionality. In these tiny NYC apartments, everything has to serve a purpose, and Ellen has managed to curate her space thoughtfully in a way that combines minimalist and utilitarian aesthetic with vintage charm. She has accrued a great mix of pieces; the Atomic and Rustic styles are well-represented with metal and wood as the main materials, and there’s a focus on lines and angles that flows throughout the place. Ellen’s home feels cozy yet orderly and displays an artful attention to detail. Check it out!
