They're a custom job by a place in Toronto's Junction neighbourhood called Eclectic Revival.

Hey @hrhprincessfiona, a friend of ours actually build the 10-person dining room table for us as a wedding gift -- before we bought a super tiny house! The only room that the table would fit in (the biggest room in the house) had to be our dining room as a result. It works out because we love to have people over for dinner!

The studio is a mere 70 square feet, so really not a great bedroom choice for two adults!

Hey @MeganMarguerite, it's Benjamin Moore's "buttermilk" -- so a buttery yellow indeed!

Hey @kayonyc it's a knock-off Pierre Paulin "orange slice" chair that I bought off Craigslist and reupholstered!

We cut our cable last December, when we swapped our dining room with our living room. Our new living room was smaller, and it just didn't have room for a TV. I'd been wanting to try going TV-free as I found myself staying up til midnight most nights watching Law & Order reruns, etc so this seemed like a good time to start. So far we haven't missed anything -- and we don't even have Netflix or apps to supplement. We go to friends' houses if there's something we really want to see and we make a social evening out of it!

Totally agree with the importance of a 3rd space - it's why my husband & I felt comfortable buying such a tiny house. We live in such an urban area (4 libraries, several parks, tons of restaurants, dozens of coffee shops) all within a 10 minute walk, so we figured we'd always have an "extra room" at our disposal should we need to get out of each other's hair for a bit. So far it's worked out perfectly, and we're always making new friends in these shared spaces!

oh my, i don't know whether to be creeped out by the similarities between this room and my own tiny, currently a dressing room / office, but one-day-nursery (the alvine ruta rug, the 8 x 6.5, the jenna rose!) or pleased that someone else was able to create a beautiful nursery out of 50 square feet. i'm going to have to show this to my father and say, "seeeee? we can totally fit a baby in this house!"
