I remember moving into my first apartment in Midtown Manhattan. I had just started a career in investment banking and wanted furniture that was chic, low-maintenance (totally not the case now, obvs) and in neutral colors. While I’m a huge fan of statement pieces, function & form are necessary for a first apartment. Check out MG’s picks for 5 first apartment furniture essentials…
