Family Rental in Brooklyn Heights

Family Rental in Brooklyn Heights

In the weekly Habitats column of The New York Times, we get a peek at the Brooklyn Heights home of Kimberly Oliver and Stuart Sclater-Booth — Ms. Oliver is the public relations manager for Design Within Reach. The couple just recently moved in together and had to combine their furnishings in a home for themselves and Mr. Sclater-Booth's three young children who visit often...

At the heart of this family home is a $28,000 sofa purchased from the
Design Within Reach Annex
for $1,000! (The sofa was a sample and was never sold by DWR.) What a deal!

In addition to the story of a couple combining furniture and belonging into a new home, the brief story addresses the possible sale of Design Within Reach. Read it: The Sofa That Ate Brooklyn.
