Sleeping Chambers

Continuing this weekend's small spaces theme, there's an interesting article in today's NYT about tiny and movie-inspired hotel rooms.  The one that most intrigued me was the room design for hotelier Sean McPherson's Jane Hotel in New York.  Perhaps more aptly described as a sleeping chamber than a room, it has an Indian Railways stateroom theme, based on a set from Wes Anderson's 2007 film, "The Darjeeling Limited."  It's not much bigger than the Homeless Chateau, which has a 4 x 8-foot layout (though a lower ceiling), and about the same size as the ironing closet I lived in in Hulme, Manchester in the early 1980s – just room for a single bed and a small pathway beside it that leads, presumably, to a bathroom and a window.

By the way, if there are any hoteliers out there who would like me to design rooms with a homeless theme, I can make myself available.

  1. Vigorous using the replica watches is absolutely not recommended, however if the straps give up prematurily, the machinery doesn't quit work so easily. They are available in a good quality quality, excellent workmanship and guaranteed longevity. It more than merely requires less maintenance, on top of that is waterproof.
