While some of Tinseltown's finest might prefer to live large, Vincent Kartheiser (aka Mad Men's Pete Campbell) makes limited square footage look lavish! Featured in Dwell's November Small Spaces issue, the Minnesota-born actor lets us into his 580-square-foot cabin designed by Funn Roberts. Decorated in an aesthetic that Kartheiser describes as "Japanese-industrial," the home's simple yet luxurious design is infused with enough smart space-saving ideas to make your head spin. A coffee table that turns into a fireplace, a sink crafted from a boulder from a friend's property, and a suspended bed that makes Murphy versions seem like a waste of wall space are just some of the customized highlights. See the nooks and crannies we're most excited about, and pick up a copy of Dwell's November issue for even more photos of this efficient cabin!
The private courtyard includes a sheltered seating area and fire pit. How gorgeous are the light-filtering screens?
Kartheiser raises his suspended bed every morning to make even more room during the day. The bed's pulley system includes a 300-pound steel weight that's concealed in his closet!
In the living room, an Eames lounge chair and ottoman add a cool midcentury vibe - possibly the only overlap between Kartheiser and his '60s-era character.
We couldn't help but notice one of our favorite space-saving products hanging outside - a wooly pocket planter!
