Functionality And Warmth In A 41 Square Meter Flat

Functionality And Warmth In A 41 Square Meter Flat

We got these pictures from one of our readers via e-mail. Antti Paasivaara is a 21 year old web architect from Finland. The apartment below has a surface of 41 square meters, yet every single corner is well taken care of in matters of functionality. This is why we consider this flat to be an inspiring example on how to deal with small places. Our reader says he has been working on decorating the place for a year. Slowly putting the pieces of the puzzle together paid off and the owner’s personality is probably well emphasized by this small, but stylish apartment. The flat seems to have it all: a bed and an extra sofa for visitors, a cool working space, interesting shelving units for books, an all equipped kitchen and bathroom. So who says a 41sqm apartment is not enough?

    Antti is a typical finnish guys name so I think Mr. Paasivaara would appreciate it if you wouldn’t call him by the female personal pronoun.

    I want to buy a bookshelf like that (the black one, like a ladder, that I saw several times on freshhome) but I don’t know where to find it. Can anybody help me?

    Thank you for your comment, Mauro. We posted this because we think the 21 year old student that sent us the pictures did a great job arranging her one-room apartment. Not all our articles are about expensive decors.

    I believe there are three big furniture companies mentioned in the article. You could try checking out their online catalogs.

    I think I see a lot of IKEA-shit right there. But you did a nice job making it ‘livable’
