Athena Calderone's Brooklyn townhouse is a breath of fresh air
Transitional spaces—stairways, hallways, landings—are often wasted design opportunities. In this hallway, which leads to our bedroom, I cut a console in half to fit the hall’s shallow depth and used it as an anchor, while a plinth with a vessel tucked into the landing corner adds a statuesque quality. Search for furniture with a thin profile and consider retrofitting to accommodate your space. Hallways are also ideal places to play with verticality.
