Common Living: Home. Made.


Who: Common Living

Where: Brooklyn, NY / Washington, DC / San Francisco, CA

What: Co-Living Leader

When: October 2016

Summary: Warm, space-saving bedroom and authentic indoor/outdoor common space designs for an innovative co-living leader.


Hugo & Hoby worked with shared-housing leader Common Living across several locations to provide members with the unique feeling of home and all the benefits of shared living. Hugo & Hoby developed multiple designs to allow members to get to know their neighbors and experience all the benefits Common brings to shared housing.

Clean, modern lines and space saving modularity make the Alston Bed Frame with underbed drawers perfect for Common members who need extra storage. Whitney Bedside Tables with hidden privacy drawers are strong enough to double as stools (for last minute get togethers) while subtle enough to let members decorate their rooms however they want!

Communal spaces get a touch of home with bespoke touches like a New England Spalted Maple Dining Table in the kitchen, New Haven Outdoor Patio Tables and Benches for sunny days, and Whitney Console Tables for living rooms.  It’s been a pleasure to help Common provide authentic furnishings to their members and fulfill their mission, “where the feeling of home is made for you, and so is just about everything else.” You can learn more about Common Living’s innovative approach to shared living here.
