Humanized Housewares

Personified furnishings offer the feeling of a "full house"

Implications - For many young people in their mid-to-late 20s, living alone is a normal, often expected, part of entering the workforce and leaving the comforts of home. One way to alleviate feelings of loneliness is through personified home furnishings and housewares that lend the feeling of being in another's company. These creations, which are quirky, novel and charming, do the trick of bringing a mood-boosting, lightheartedness to day-to-day living.
