design to inspire

Do you find your wee one's space cluttered with tiny figurines that have no home? Or do you find yourself compulsively collecting snow globes only to find you have nowhere to put them? (No? That's just me? Hmm.)

Vintage typesetter boxes may be the answer. Rare though they seem to be in the Sydney area, they are a perfectly tasteful solution to kitsch collecting compulsions and homeless children's characters. Secure a large box to the wall above your wee one's desk and your kiddos can pop their playmates back in their cubby holes at the end of playtime.

Typesetter boxes can also add a funky industrial edge in the grownup's living area (as I noticed in this month's issue of Inside Out magazine).

How about you? Do you you have any vintage typesetter boxes adorning your walls? (And if you're in the Sydney area can you recommend a place to find one? Do tell!) See here and here for more baby space typesetter style.
