West Village Bachelor PadEclectic Dining Room, New York
The "main room" in the apartment had to serve multiple functions - a living room, a kitchen, a dining room, as well as a place to store items like our client's bicycle. Because space was tight, we used a small bistro table so that our client could sit with one other person (or more by pulling up other chairs) and enjoy a meal. By using a wall mounted bike rack that also incorporated some storage for his helmet + lock, we were able to save some space, and love the way that it highlights our client's graffiti art purchased on the streets of NYC!

What Houzz contributors are saying:
11. Make your bike a featureA bicycle is a good investment if you want to make the most of city living, but in an apartment there’s often nowhere to put it. Make a feature of your two wheels with a stylish wall-mounted rack. In this West Village apartment, the bicycle is a work of art.
2. Wall for wheels Urban cyclists who have neither a storage shed nor garage still need a place to protect their means of transportation from weather and theft. The solution: custom wall mounts. Clearly less fuss than having to unlock the bike from a parking garage gate or stair rail each time it’s used, the mount provides easy access for those on the go. Space-friendly tricks to stash your bicycle
1. Hanging artBeautifully balanced and positioned, the bicycle in this bachelor pad almost becomes an extension of the existing artwork above it. By placing the bike on the wall in a spacious access way, there’s plenty of room to walk past the handlebars. The extra wide bracket means the bike can be placed or removed in a matter of seconds.
