Iremonya Faiver Box Storage & Awesome, Elmer-ish Nappy Chair

I held the door for the FedEx guy when he delivered our 200+ pounds of Via Toy Box, which, he knew, meant he couldn't get away with leaving them in our building office. The two Korean brothers who brought our sofa back from the upholsterer's Saturday morning were almost ready to start swinging at each other by the time they got back down the two flights of stairs.


If I really wanted to bring peace on earth among all deliverymankind this holiday season, I should have ordered the kids up some of Iremonya's awesome Faiver [in Japanese, it looks like "fiber"] storage boxes instead. The heavy-duty, reinforced cardboard shelves have a smiley handle face on one side, and a frowny handle face on the other. I'm sure they're durable enough to last as long as you want them to, and they weigh just enough to give the FedEx guy a sense that he's not carrying an empty box.


Of course, they're only 22 inches high. For more substantial storage capacity, you'll want the bigger S1-S drawers, which sit snugly in 3-, 6-, or 9-unit wood cases [above]. At 76,000 yen for a 6-box system, it's not quite expensive enough to ignore the cost of shipping plywood furniture from Kyoto. The smiley face of peace has eluded our grasp for another year.

Meanwhile, I'd get that awesome Faiver Check Nappy mini chair up there a seat on the plane. It's Gerhard Richter by way of Elmer the Patchwork Elephant, and while it might be too much as an adult chair, it's pretty close to perfect for a kid's room. Or a Cologne cathedral. 42,000 yen, no word on international shipping.
