This furniture store caters to a clientele of bargain-hunting NYU students, offering an assortment of affordable futons, day beds, and bar stools. Walls in the two-room shop are filled with colorful mounted seating, and rows of funky wood and plastic bar stools from World Source Trading are scattered about the floor. New merchandise is showcased up front, while the back room holds discounted overstock like curvy loveseats and suede chairs. The bulk of the store’s stock consists of futons and day beds from Danish brand Innovation, with a particular array of easy fold-down models conducive to couch-crashing guests and space-cramped apartments. Books of fabric swatches present dozens of prints and shades for customized futon covers, from bright-orange cotton to more subdued versions in black leather or white polyester blends. A small selection of accent pieces near the entrance includes cowhide chaise lounges and broad chrome floor lamps.
