There are times when we almost wish we had more space constraints with our own place just to see how much functionality we can "octopus" or squeeze our way into a space like Katie's early 1920's flat in San Francisco. With a living room that's the size of some of our walk-in closets, shelving - it seems - starts to become an absolute necessity for any gadget one chooses to house in a small space.
We love how one can manage to still comfortably strike up a conversation while sitting on the couch adjacent to the entertainment area without feeling like you ever have to raise your voice to get the attention of the other person. This kind of intimacy is much more difficult to pull off when you have an entire wall dedicated to home entertainment and less of a focus on person-to-person interaction.
It's always good to keep the focus on people rather than technology in this day in age where bookshelves seem to be disappearing in reaction e-Readers mania, kids spend the majority of their days in confined in their rooms, and we can't even put down our smartphones just to simply ask, "How are you doing today?"
