Minimalist Furniture

Furniture H.D. Thoreau-style
Never mind the giant leather sectional, all you really need for furniture is three basic chairs. Furnished in such a fashion, Henry David Thoreau found his 150 sq. ft. house to be perfectly adequate for company and 'entertaining'.

"I had three chairs in my house; one for solitude, two for friendship, three for society. When visitors came in larger and unexpected numbers there was but the third chair for them all, but they generally economized the room by standing up.

It is surprising how many great men and women a small house will contain. I have had twenty-five or thirty souls, with their bodies, at once under my roof, and yet we often parted without being aware that we had come very near to one another." - H.D.T.

  1. I love the chairs of H.D. Thoreau I think this chair maybe goes with and inexpressive ambient. Thanks for the quotes.
