Lightness is the best adjective to describe Small Spaces. The airy and open store is also very much themed around the idea of living lightly. Small Spaces proposes a philosophy built around possessing less, but investing in objects of high quality in raw and organic forms. The store considers studio apartments and small living spaces as something to be celebrated rather than criticised, and rather than being burdened by the ownership of many things, this is a store that relishes function and simplicity.
Multifunctional items are emphasised, with a small assortment of custom furniture built to live a double life, like stools that masquerade as side-tables, or ottomans that act as coffee tables. The store is, unsurprisingly, a small one - smattered with local, Scandinavian and Japanese designs, and art that evokes rather than provokes reaction. With simplicity and serenity imbued in the aesthetic here, there’s something warm and inviting in the shapes of the homewares, and the textures of the bedding and textiles. This is not about furnishing aloof and hypermodern spaces, but rather crafting a warm tranquillity in your home life.
