At first glance, Milan Hughston's West Village studio seems to be one small room. But the west wall contains the apartment's functional core: shelving, a Murphy bed, a tabletop that slides on tracks to serve as desk, dining room table and kitchen island.
Hughston wanted to create a home that has a minimal aesthetic but a lot of impact. He chose all of his furniture for its relationship to the size of his apartment. Scale is everything in a small space. Two of his favorite features are the glossy black floor that creates a reflective pool that makes the furniture appear to float in the space, and the silvery curtain against the far wall that adds shimmering sheer sexiness to the studio.
