- What I Love About My Small Home:
- Although the apartment has collectable designer pieces, the apartment was furnished on a very low budget and we paid very little for our furniture. We have a personal connection to almost every piece, and with every piece there's very a personal story as to how it was acquired.
With the exception of a very few ikea pieces, everything in the apartment is either hand made or restored. The origami sculptures, bookshelf, coffee table, and dining table (made of church floorboards) were made from scratch. Old Eames shells and the DJ booth credenza were once in horrible condition.
The apartment is very modular. Doors on either end of the credenza open up to reflect sound from speakers hidden inside the credenza and diffuse sound. The coffee can lengthen or shorten. The living room can also be quickly converted into a photo studio by simply moving two pieces of furniture and setting up foldable backdrops and lighting equipment.
