56 Seriously Chic Apartments

From Black Marble Apartments to Private Pool Condo Units

— May 24, 2014 — Eco
Downtown living can get expensive, but for those that are fine with living in a smaller space, these chic apartments offer a few ideas in terms of decorating and overall design.

From China to the United States, apartment designs definitely vary across the world. Some focus on the eco-friendly elements to attract tenants who would like to reduce their carbon footprint, while others go with luxurious settings such as using black marble designs throughout. One of the exciting things about these chic apartments is it goes to show how an excessive amount of space isn't always necessary to create a home that's worth boasting about. Many of these designs make the most out of only 600 square feet, and with the right eye for space-saving solutions many people could update their homes in multiple ways.
