I’m baaaaack in San Francisco! Phew! The move from Los Angeles to San Francisco was such a haul of belongings, emotion, and anticipation. We made it in one piece and I’ve used the last few weeks to unpack and become reacquainted with the city I once called “home”. It feels so good to be back here. I’ve hit all my favorite restaurants like Emmy’s Spaghetti Shack and Pakwan. Next on my list is Ethiopian food at Axum Cafe.
The only bummer is that the staircase that leads from our front door to our flat has a narrow, 70-degree turn and our couch and queen-sized box spring mattress didn’t fit up to our apartment. Our couch *almost* fit; it was only a few inches too wide. Ugh, so frustrating. We’ll be donating our couch and mattress. I guess the bright side is that we ordered a beautiful sectional sofa from Room and Board that’s so versatile that we’ll have it for years and years. I guess when one “sofa” door closes, another opens. And we bought a split box spring for our queen bed. Who knew they made such a thing? But they do and it works perfectly. Seriously, we move so often that if I knew they made a split queen box spring, I would have bought that when I purchased the set long ago.
Well, with all the unpacking and finding places for everything in my new apartment I have storage systems on my mind and I was so excited when I came across these furniture storage pieces on Yatzer. The Jose Collection by Mauricio Arruda is produced out of plastic containers and (Forest Stewardship Council) wood sheets to create beautiful credenzas and side tables. I remember my college days of using milk crates for end tables and this furniture really takes that idea to a whole other level.
