Room for Improvement
A few months back, we asked for images of sad-sack living rooms in need of a good sprucing up. We requested photographic evidence and were not disappointed—–snapshots of saggy sofas, mismatched hand-me-downs, and cluttered coffee tables flooded in. After a round of voting, a grand-prize winner was selected and a bounty of brand-spanking-new furniture was selected, delivered, and installed. Here we present a glimpse of the process of transforming grand-prize winner James Kish's Hoboken condo into a crisp and tailored apartment.
