If you were transfixed by the Public Art Fund's recent exhibit by Tatzu Nishi, "Discovering Columbus"—in which the artist built a living room six stories above the ground, around the iconic Columbus Circle monument—good news: Now you can stock your own apartment with furniture, decorations and more from the show.
The Public Art Fund and Art Space have collaborated to make select items from the exhibit available to the public—all you have to do is sign up on the Art Space website (registration is free), and you'll have access to the sale. Some of the furnishings being offered include a purple velvet sectional sofa ($1,950); a selection of floor and table lamps ($125–$150); and accessories like a straw basket ($30), throw pillows ($50) and a small bronze horse sculpture ($115). And no, the statue of Columbus himself is not included.
