The free IKEA FAMILY LIVE magazine arrived today. The issue deals with the challenge of living in a small place, but people today by no means face the same housing shortage as Britain did after the First World War. The 1920 Yearbook of THE STUDIO deals with "The Decoration & Furnishing of Small Rooms" and building economical concrete homes. 

The text above, and the illustrations, show he influence of the Arts and Crafts movement.


How many of these houses remain today?
