No space is too small for IKEA


CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa. IKEA is offering free design advice, including furniture up to $10,000, to the buyer of the skinniest house in NYC.

At 9 1/2 feet wide and 42 feet long, the $2.7 million apartment poses several design challenges. Mainly, the residence at 75 1/2 Bedford in Greenwich Village has an extremely constricted floor plan.

Built in 1873, the diminutive house is squeezed between 75 and 77 Bedford St., hence the fraction in the street address. It was once the home to some very noteworthy occupants, including anthropologist Margaret Mead and Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Edna St. Vincent Millay. The kitchen contains a custom stove that has all four burners in a single row, instead of the usual two-by-two arrangement
