Furniture & Layout Ideas for My New Studio?

Good Questions

Q: I'm moving to a really fabulous but really tiny alcove studio apartment in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. The approximate square footage of the entire unit is 400 square feet, with 250 square feet in the living/sleeping area.

I'd really love some tips on furniture arrangement to highlight the high 11' ceilings, wall-to-wall windows, the fantastic view of Manhattan, and to help keep the place feeling airy.

Right now I don't have any furniture, so I'll be starting from scratch. I feel as if any "regular sized" furniture will make the space feel even tinier than it already is. Each square in the grid shown above is 1 ft. Help!
