Camping at Home: Minimalist Living from Snow Peak

Snow Peak makes camping equipment. But as our lifestyles become more mobile and our homes become smaller, furniture that is light, minimal and can be folded up when it isn't needed makes some sense. The stuff is beautifully made and looked as good as much of the more conventional furniture.

Good camping equipment is built to take a lot of abuse, and this stuff is solid. They say the right things on their site:

We believe that quality is better than quantity. In a time when most things are built as merely "pre-landfill", we are striving to bring you products that will last longer than you. The following Tables, Chairs, and Sleeping gear are designed environmentally and ergonomically friendly to last the test of time.
