130 Sq Ft Paris Apartment

Over the past few years, reports on smaller and smaller apartments have been heard but I think this 130 square foot in Paris might just take the cake. I'd hate to see someone trying to live in an even smaller space, though I'm sure someone out there is already working on a highly custom and modular equipped flat. What are your thoughts on tiny living spaces? Worth it to have your own place when you're young or would you rather just get a roommate?

Like many of you, we're obsessed with tiny homes. New York City microstudios measuring 325 square feet, San Francisco apartments at 160 square feet -- good things come in small packages, we say! And just when we thought it couldn't get any smaller, we saw this: A teeny, tiny 130-square-foot apartment in Paris!

Though many of you would automatically think "nightmare," it's actually a pretty clean, uncluttered and streamlined space! Storage is largely hidden inside sleek, built-in shelving, and a split-level floorplan was implemented to ensure greater flexibility and the illusion of space. (The bed, for example, can be tucked right underneath the raised "kitchen area").
