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.
