Size Does Not Matter When You Are in Love TheSomersTeam

450 square feet, 2 cats and madly in love. That pretty much describes Chris and me back when we first met. I think we were so love struck that we did not even notice the tight quarters we endured. Chris's skiis were on top of the kitchen cabinets, the bike was a permanent peice of furniture which doubled as a coat wrack and extra seating. The bedroom living room, dining room, office, and study were one space! Get the picture? Things were tight.

We adored those days in the 450 sq ft Studio Condo in Old City.  Looking back, it is amazing how small that place really was! But gosh, what great times all 4 of us had. That old studio condo came to mind when I was NYC earler in January and was introduced to an ingenoius furniture vendor that is perfecting the art of transforming small spaces.  Clei's built in furniture designs fold, flip, tuck, and slide much like the Transformers on the big screen but much more sleek. Hide away beds and desks can disappear out of site in a flip of the wrist. Very cool.

For you folks lucky enough to live in huge homes with formal rooms for all of life's individual activities, you may not understand the studio life style but you can certainly appreciate the brilliant design concepts being explored by this Italian furniture company.

Here are a few pictures from their catalogue:

As you see these rooms are pretty cool. Though do not let the title of this blog throw you. The size of your condo may not matter when you are in love but the size of your wallet certainly does if you want to buy one of the 40 custom built transformable ensembles. So, save your money all of you lovers out there and enjoy your small spaces.

Tight fit means the need for a tightly run ship. It's not how much but how you use the space you have.

Raiza- I just use an old camera... am due for a better one soon.

Andrew- if I only knew then hwat I know now... I'd make Chris and the cats swab the deck or  walk the plank if you know what I mean?

Barbara and Dan- bigger is not always better and in this economy, I would not be suprsed if small spaces, studio condos, and one bedroom condos don't become en vogue.
