Inside a Playful and Shape-Filled Brooklyn Apartment

The living room and dining space each boast prototypes of the couples’ latest joint venture: Wiggle Room. Born out of frustration with shopping for an affordable and interesting dining table for their own apartment, Zoe and Levi launched the furniture company, which offers  “wiggly” made-to-order side, coffee, and dining tables. Crafted from Baltic birch with a laminate top in a variety of colorful pastels, Wiggle Room tables are professionally manufactured in Brooklyn, but the first prototype—a dining table with a strawberry pink top—was handmade by Levi in a woodshop. According to Wiggle Room’s website, that first model “took way too long and was a little wobbly, but it looked like nothing we’d seen before.”

Zoe and Levi launched their furniture company Wiggle Room in September, and prototypes from their line of tables are found throughout the home.

In the couple’s living room, you’ll find Wiggle Room side tables in pistachio and lavender, as well as a prototype of a coffee table with a wood top, which is slated for release later this fall. Though Zoe and Levi didn’t expect to be working from home this year, one bright side of quarantine has been the time and focus to launch their new company. And we have to say, the design world is grateful.

The born-and-bred New Yorker has a self-described “loud” taste in fashion. When designing their home, Zoe wanted the space to feel more calm than her closet, with touches of color.

⚒ Do It Yourself

Widen your search If you’re on the lookout for a specific vintage piece, Zoe suggests looking into unconventional shipping options so you can search outside of your immediate area. They found their dining chairs from a seller based in New Mexico, and Levi’s mom shipped them to New York via bus.

Fake it till you make it The charming ’50s-style checkerboard floor in Zoe’s kitchen is actually a DIY using vinyl stick-on tiles.

Find space for things you love If she sees something she loves, Zoe’s rule is to buy it and find a place for it in her home. “There have been so many times I’ve bought something for a certain spot and it just didn’t work,” she says. “If you’re collecting things you love, it will find a space.”
