You can have small spaces with both functionality and beautiful design without sacrificing your living space! Quite challenging, yes, but a few inspiration spaces with brilliant solutions! Modern spaces that make the most of their limited square footage.In a 240-square-foot shoebox studio on the Upper West Side, you need every inch you can get! This sleek (and small!) space made the most of every available inch, and the best example of this is a cubby-like alcove turned into a perfect little library. How perfect is this?
