Hirashima

we are thinking about a house. i mean, just starting the process… in our minds. i know it can take months or years for anything to come to fruition – and i always try to be pragmatic about these things and not get TOO excited (don’t go breakin’ my heart!) but everything inside me wants a little house somewhere. just a little garden and space for a dog and… other things that crawl around. i suppose that is the dream of anyone who grew up in the suburbs, and transplanted their adult life to a city – where space is limited and comes at a price. but sometimes i also think, well, we could live in an apartment forever.

and if we did, we’d just have to be clever about space. i thought about how possible it was when i saw this furniture by Japanese company Hirashima. if there are any people in the world who are very clever about space, and design, and minimalism – it’s the Japanese.

  1. I saw the first picture and thought, “Oh, cool looking couch,” and then I saw the second picture and my jaw dropped. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Ah, I love the desk/working spaces attached to the backs of the couch and bed. Such a great idea for small spaces. And the details on all of these pieces are absolutely stunning!

  3. I actually love to live in apartments, and the creativity required to make small spaces work. Furniture such as these would never come to be if people didn’t have to deal with small spaces. I love the multi-tasking properties of these.

  4. These are such amazing pieces! I wish I had the discipline for a minimalistic look but I tend to be a clutterer.

  5. These are so clever, why aren’t more pieces of furniture multi-functional? My favorite is the stand-alone table, though. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Thank you for sharing Miss Moss! Beautiful & well designed furniture.

  7. Yea the Japanese are always so smart about using small space! and these furniture pieces are amazing :)
