catalogue shopping in tokyo pt1

with apartments barely big enough to swing a cat (actually our minature aparto and its white white walls would definitely not tolerate any cat swinging), tokyoites have become masters at interior design and storage solutions (i make this sweeping comment having only been into a handful of tokyo homes, but as a highly experienced homeware shop browser). alas without ikea or a car, purchasing the cool compact coffee tables and craftily designed desks can be a wee bit toilsome. if there is a will there is a way, and when it comes to making purchases; this city always, always presents you with a way. so easy is it to have everything that you need at your fingertips, that we have redesigned our interior in a matter of days without even leaving the house. oh i tell a lie, we did leave the house, but only to stroll down to the local bookshop. yes, we found all we needed on the shelves in the magazine section.
catalogue shopping; a whole new world of delights and temptations. no need to traipse from store to store...simply flick through the pages, dog ear the corners of all the desirable pages, measure things up, decide on your purchases, type all your wishes in and they are delivered to your doorstep asap (cash on delivery of course).
we decided to purchase from two online/catalogue stores - nissen and interior book
