Small Space Entertaining with Designer Jon Call

September 24, 2013

At Remodelista, we’re obsessed with stealthy storage and savvy organization. Why? Because for most of us, space is at a premium–especially in our kitchens. It’s a quandary designer Jon Call knows well. Through his design firm, Mr. Call Designs (a member of the Remodelista Architect/Designer Directory), he’s designed uptown lofts and sprawling spaces. Mr. Call himself lives in New York, but his own dwelling has recently gone from small, to smaller.

We chatted with Call about how he makes it work–in style–as someone who loves to entertain but whose kitchen is tight on space. “I’ve used Remodelista nonstop for the last few weeks, sourcing the perfect goods for my new home,” says Call. “I’ve had small appliances and furnishings on the brain.”

Armed with inspiration from our site, Call found deliverance at Best Buy, choosing a coffeemaker, slow cooker, and–our favorite–a SodaStream sparkling water system to ready his new apartment for easy entertaining. For Call, the products he sourced on Remodelista were easy to find at Best Buy. It’s important to the designer that he sees the products in person before he buys them, but Call also had a lot of shopping to do–and wanted the lowest prices. Luckily, Best Buy’s low-price guarantee ensured that he could visit the store without having to troll the Internet for the best price.

Watch our video of Call preparing for a party at home, and find sourcing information below.
