New from Resource Furniture
Right before Hurricane Sandy swept into New York and its environs, we paid a visit to the midtown showroom of Resource Furniture. Resource Furniture is a frequent exhibitor at Dwell on Design, and their roster of transformable furniture pieces—beds, desks, tables, you name it—makes small space living a cinch. Dwell got a tour of all the latest, plus a demonstration of one of the genre's most classic pieces: the original LGM system from Clei (in handy GIF form for your viewing pleasure).
