New York City

297 tours

The Big Apple. The City That Never Sleeps. Or just The City. Whatever you call it, we’re all on the same page. New Yorkers are a special breed of human being that can live in tiny spaces and work extra long hours while dressing very well and being very beautiful. The proliferation of tiny spaces means we appreciate two things: the rare big apartment and excellent design in the small ones. Every-sized space deserves attention whether it’s where you live, work or play and we’re here to help organize your exposed brick LES studio, full-floor Manhattan office, Greenpoint artists’ loft, perfect West Village brownstone or Broadway OMG store (just kidding, kind of). Your finds from the Brooklyn or Brimfield Flea markets deserve the perfect placement! We all know that NYC is a magical place - why not bring some of the sparkle inside? Make your friends jealous and then give them the link to Homepolish.
