Sheri Koetting and Marc Levitt's two-level apartment is their home and office space for their design firm. Downstairs, they often have several employees at work in the room next to their kitchen. Upstairs, the living room and bedroom double as the wayward home for other people's discarded artistic objects. As graphic artists, aesthetics are important.
If you put a little energy back into a piece and recover it instead of tossing it, you can make it work for a whole new generation of design. This was Koetting's dad's recliner and was originally puke green. They had the piece reupholstered and then had their custom-built sofa upholstered in the same fabric. Their multipurpose couch has arms that swing around to become leg rests and a back that folds down to become a bed.
