My friend owns a charming one bedroom, one bathroom apartment on the upper east side of Manhattan. I spent the weekend in New York City, and woke up on her guest daybed Saturday morning. The daybed is on the side of the living room wall near a desk and bookshelf. Against the perpendicular wall is the sofa and across from it, the TV. It was in the grogginess of morning that I noticed all of the furniture was arranged against the edges of the room leaving open negative space in the center. "There is too much space between the TV and the couch." I said to myself.   I could understand why the pieces were arranged this way. It was a small ...

I love my apartment. Honestly, since the first day I laid eyes on it. I live in an awesome part of Boston, close to amazing restaurants - shout out to Zon's, Ten Tables and my new fav down the road, Sophia's Grotto. Mmmmm. Anyway...although I love my place, it has, what I used to call a downfall...It's really, really small. Like so tiny, I even have a "baby" stove, as my nephew calls it. When I first moved in this presented a problem...where to put all my furniture I've collected over the years I've tried all different layouts, never really feeling like I had found the golden ticket....or golden floor plan, as it were. This past April I had a ...

Why should you support locally owned and operated businesses Because it effects you and your living space more that you think! It goes far beyond the local craftsman and sustainable forest products we sell at Circle Furniture; but the money comes back around to help your local economy through keeping locals employed, paying taxes to local and state governments which perform for you! For every $100 spent in locally owned independent stores, $68 returns to the community through taxes, payroll, and other expenditures. If you spend that ...
