Nova Oshima
To celebrate their 15th year in Japan Nova Oshima have opened a spacious new showroom overlooking Tokyo Bay to showcase their premier furniture imported from Italy. With many of the most popular pieces from the collections of top Italian design houses Halifax, Elam, Tisettanta and Mixel, they store everything for the modern home. The options range from sofas and beds in soft hues and natural timbers to stark ultra-clean black and white chairs and tables. Particularly appropriate for organizing cluttered Tokyo apartments are the beautifully simple storage units that should help organize that extensive wardrobe currently cramped in your tansu chest.
