Small things of beauty and simplicity in a complex world

While visiting our son in his shared house a couple of days ago I was struck by the things his house mate had made to add convenience and use of space to the otherwise fairly un-ergonomic dwelling.

The coat hooks could easily have been displayed in the Conran shop; his shoe rack and key storage meuble an item of creativity and ingenuity. My favourite of his ouvres was the kitchen accoutrements housing arrangement - featured below. If he decides against roofing/major carpentry after his apprenticeship , I think he could certainly find a ready market for personalised house organisation. William Morris would certainly have approved . . . beauty and function.
