The Japanese infatuation with Americana does not extend only to clothing. They also have mastered the art of modular homes. BESS is a Japanese company that manufactures complete modular homes, including appliances and furniture.
Models range from traditional Japanese style to a Southern California surf shack. The impeccable attention to detail is what you would expect from any top Japanese company. Each model has a brief tutorial on how the components of the home are constructed. Some even have a ‘build your own’ feature, that allows the consumer to design their dream home from the comforts of their desk.
Due to the limit of space in Japan, each home is small, yet they feel larger, due to the open floor plans and the use of materials. The only question I have is: ‘Do they deliver to the U.S.?’.
