HBL Blog of the Week: Shoebox Dwelling

Wednesday, 3 August 2011

While some design blogs provide a broad overview of the design scene at that moment, others choose to focus on very specialised areas of interest; our choice this week is of the latter variety. Written by Russian design journalist Natalia Repolovsky, Shoebox Dwelling is devoted to "finding comfort, style and dignity in small spaces". Now that, as our recent report Multifunctional Furniture in the Versatile Home points out, "more than half of the global population lives in cities", it's a good time to start reading it.

HBL loves: the simple, problem-solving nature of the projects featured, which range from furniture and accessories to entire living systems.
