Form meets function is my mantra for small home interiors. Furnishings and storage that appeal to my sense of whimsy make my small space dweller heart sing.
The wall mounted desk and shelf by VIASHstudios for the Lax Series line is not limited to web surfing. A dining nook, entryway table, vanity, bar or buffet are just a few ways this piece can transform.
Maika’s buckets are quirky, versatile and come in multiple sizes. I use a large and small to tuck away desk clutter like chargers and receipts. These canvas cuties are perfect for organizing (or hiding) odds and ends in the closet, kitchen or bathroom. Also perfect to dress up a potted plant or tie strings through the loops for easy hanging. Another plus is the ability fold flat for storing when not in use. From Maika Goods. Also spotted at Quince in Kakaʻako on Oahu and at Paia Mercantile in Lahaina.
Do you work for shoes? This shoe ottoman offered by Wayfair has dividers in the lining to store your precious cargo. Don’t need an ottoman in your bedroom and don’t have a walk-in closet? In a small home, there are no hard and fast zone rules. Use this in in the living area as a foot rest and a coffee table (just top with a tray to hold your cocktail). Also perfect tucked next to or under an entryway table. For the manager or executive, this piece could also work in the office to store your heels while you commute in comfort and also serve as a hiding spot for your handbag. The avid knitter could also use this piece and its dividers for current projects.
The French Laundry totes from Horchow are so gorgeous with the French linen red stripe design. I love the stand alone functionality as most laundry totes are hung on bulky and unattractive (and unstable) racks that scream HIDE ME. This is a laundry sorter with an aesthetic you won’t mind showing off. The self-standing design also means the totes can easily be split up (say the dry cleaning in the closet and the laundry in the bathroom). The totes are also sold individually.
