At the weekend we watched a documentary about tiny houses. I like the ethos behind this movement - a return to living simply in houses of around 100-400 sq feet. In a way I've inadvertently become a tiny-houser myself; our flat has basically three rooms, and I doubt it's more than 500 sq feet in size.
When you have two people living in a petite flat, it's pretty essential to keep it as organised as possible. Unfortunately the work I do means that I often have various piles of paper - reports, documents, books - taking up space on the coffee table. Not ideal!
My solution was this cute fold-able storage box. Picked up for a fiver from Tiger's new-ish store on Tottenham Court Road (which, dangerously for my wallet, is walking distance from where I work) it's just the right size for chucking in those bits and bobs that don't quite have a proper place to be. As well as the fruity pattern, my favourite feature is that the box is held together by press studs - so when not in use, the body of the box can be folded down and fitted inside the lid. Neat, no?
