2. Location: TokyoWhy we love it: The view from the stove is one of the most important in a kitchen, because it’s probably the most used. From this stove, the view out onto an extensive book collection is one we’d always find nice. Simple and beautifully crafted, the bookcase does not try to steal the spotlight, instead allowing the books to shine. Its color radiates warmth and ties in with the other curated wood pieces on the first floor.
