I also loved the story in this issue about closet transformations. My friend recently moved into a studio and had two side by side closets, but no room for a desk. I suggested the office space idea as below. Turns out, like many New Yorkers, she really needed that extra closet space for an actual closet. I still think it's brilliant, maybe in another apartment one of these ideas below would work perfectly.
How awesome is this bar from Eddie Ross' farmhouse!?
