So. You have a shiny new space, a clean slate and a fresh start, the only problem? Its a postage stamp… Worry not, all you need is some clever thinking to make your small space work. In this post we offer well needed therapy for apartments and homes, offering modern designs specifically tailored for the smaller spaces. If you’re looking for ways to streamline and simplify without compromising your impressive style, these solutions make for very smart answers.

Make your living room livable

Big in Japan?  That doesn’t mean you can’t fit your life a small space. The start to the solution is to make the most important room, the living room, function for your lifestyle. 

The workhorse of the living room is the sofa. Make sure you choose wisely. Exaggerate the size of your living room by choosing seating that is tailored. Overstuffed pieces create visual noise, and waste valuable real estate such as actual room to lounge around, and lets face it, thats really what your sofa is all about, isn't it?

Dinner for 6, (or 1 if people aren't your thing)

The days of fine china are slightly out of vogue. And lets face it, do you really have the room? Your everyday dinnerware is already party-perfect. What you do need are a few smart essentials that can transition from breakfast to dinner, from family time to party time. Opt for stackable, simple, help-yourself dishes to pull off an anytime get-together. Gatherings don’t get much easier than this.
