Suzi West has gone big by going small in her Short North studio condominium, which, in the living room alone, features show-stopping "branchelier," a 3-foot-wide chandelier of white willow; an oversized zebra-print ottoman and an 8-foot-tall cupboard. Rife with European flourishes, Suzi's home, a finalist in the 2008 Small Cool Home Contest mixes old-world chic with a cheeky charm: for instance, collection of apothecary bottles--including one that once housed chloroform--sits alongside a collection of Buddha heads; a sign reading "amateur boxing every Friday nite" hangs above her stately bed.
